We stopped there to eat the dinner. There are many same types eateries in that area and they all have comparable menu and prices. We've ordered two set menus: lentil soup, beef tajine with prunes, almonds and sesame and a chicken tajine.plus moroccan sweets for the dessert and a mint tea. Everything was very tasty but the beef tajine was... More

We loved this place -- excellent food, wide selection, very affordable, and a nice front-row seat to the people-watching in the medina. Said himself is a hospitable and good-natured guy. You are going to be having plenty of tajine meals in Morocco anyway, so you might as well have one that's as good as most other places at a lower... More

If you are looking for a fancy place, this is not the restaurant to go. If you are looking for great food for a reasonable price, I really indicate chez said. We had different dishes and all of them were great: kafta with eggs and tomato sauce, chicken brochettes, vegetarian tajine, chicken tajine, and roasted chicken (at 40 dh each).... More

We had a good choice of set menus at a reduced out of season price of 50 dirham pp. The portions were generous and tasty and served with a massive smile and a lot of pride. Situated in the medina at street level you are in the heart of the action at any time of day. A proper Moroccan experience... More

After looking up places to eat on tripadvisor this place seemed like it had the best reviews and man I was not disappointed. On arrival we were given free Olives and bread plus an entree of red lentil soup which was delicious. As a group of 6 we decided to share 2x cous cous dishes and all had a main... More

My friends and I went to this restaurant on our last night in Fes and it was quite possibly the best meal we had in Morocco. It was super cheap (all our meals were 40 dirham each and most of the menu was 80 or under) and it was also delicious. The man serving us whom I think may have... More

This restaurant was amazing. The staff were great - friendly, patient and very accommodating considering we were a party of 6 with little to no French/Spanish/Arabic and a vegan. The food was incredible with a good selection, really cheap and the location was ideal for people watching. We were told that Fez would be a bit more expensive than Marrakech... More

Main dish between 40-80dhs, excellent food. This is one of the small restaurant next to the Blue gate of medina. Small kitchen, 3 tables inside and couple of other tables in front, plenty of buzzing tourists passing around. This looks like as all the neighboring ones, but difference is noticed when you see and taste food! First it looks always... More

This was such random luck as we were headed somewhere else but liked being in the middle of everything. Had couscous and the mixed grill. Lovely waiter and wonderful coffee. Full name is guenoun chez said -- worth finding for the couscous with chicken. Even their bread was better. Yummy lentil soup
