Moroccan & Lebanese Mezze Bar & Restaurant

Come & experience the authentic Moroccan & Lebanese Cuisine!. Al Farid is an award-winning restaurant specialising in Moroccan & Lebanese cuisine. We have two restaurants -  Cathedral Yard, Exeter, Devon & Holywell Hill, St. Albans, Hertfordshire.

We offer exclusive Arabian fine dining experience along with our traditional Hookah/Sisha Bar.

Our name, 'Al Farid', is inspired by the name of a mystic Arabic poet, Umar ibn ‘Al-Farid’, who's poetry is related to entirely Sufic content.

Our head chef has created a thoughtful menu that delights the taste buds. A firm favorite is our meze, an array of small succulent dishes. The meze, comprised of both hot and cold dishes, offers a wealth of colour flavour, texture and aroma.

Traditional  Moroccan Tagines

A tagine, sometimes spelled “tajine,” is a traditional Moroccancooking vessel made of ceramic or unglazed clay with a round base and low sides. A cone-shaped cover sits on the base during cooking

"My request is not for bliss of the Garden.
I only desire to see You."

  • By Umar ibn Al-Farid

"Was that Layla's flame that shone through the veils of night on Dhū-Salam?
Or lightning's flash throughout the vales round Zawra and Al-Alam?
Have you but a sigh of dawn for me, O winds about Na'man?
Have you but a sip to offer me, O waters of Wajra?
O driver of laden camels rolling up the wayless sands
like a scroll of mighty writ beside the Sagebrush of Idam
Turn aside at the guarded safeground -God be your shepherd!- and seek the path"
