“Great place, low prices!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

The owner of our Riad told us this was a great place. It's located very close to Bab Bou Jeloud, the blue gate, which you'll surely pass being in Fes. The place is very small, in a row of same style restaurants.
It has a menu written in english and french. It's very low budget. A full 3 course meal will set you back 70 dirham.
What we liked is the free cup of harira soup which was served to everybody staying there.
The other food, chickenbrochettes, spaghetti, couscous, steak and roasted chicken was just great.

It's a great spot watching people passing by, and the location is just super, very close to a tall tree in a corner.
Thumbs up for "Chez Rachid".
(one night we had dinner at his neighbour, "Chez Said", but this was not as good as Rachid!!

“People watching place!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Lots of people walking past! We had a homeless man help himself to our bread and beans while walking past which wasn't that pleasant and the food is ok - not great but did have a lot worse in Morocco! Have no idea how it is ranked 13 th but guess there are just not many good restaurants in Fez.

“OK but you can do better”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

The attraction of Chez Rachid is watching the people passing by--not the food.There are a dozen restaurants right around Bab Boujloud, all with the same basic menu at the same low prices. For the money, I prefer Cafe Bouayad, a bit closer to the Blue Gate

“Good simple food and terrific location”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

We enjoyed dinner at Chez Rachid on two evenings while visiting Fes. The location is second to none with excellent people watching (the tables closest to the street have the best views!). We are vegetarian and were very pleased by the couscous with vegetables and the vegetarian tagine.
