Since 5 years we eat the excellent pastilla Chez Said in the Old Medina. It is by far the best we ever ate in a Restaurant in Morocco. Always freshly prepaired. 60 MAD = 6 Euro. As amuse geule you get some olives and a lentil soup.

After being touted into Chez Said restaurant, he immediately promoted his vegetarian options. I ordered the set meal for 70dirhams. The meal started with the Lental soup which was honestly 10/10! Then my vegetarian tagine swiftly followed my soup, I was enjoying the dish until I noticed small pieces of meat in the dish, I quickly told the waiter &... More

Food was okay, as was service - nothing special just like your other classic Moroccan dishes that was widely available. When we paid it came out to be 15MAD more than what we ate, questioned the owner about it and he said "service charge" - this wasn't stated anywhere... Also, this was our last meal in our 1 week stay... More

I'm in love with Chez Said! Our driver, Reda, recommended this restaurant on our first day in Fez. We were so warmly welcomed and the food was so amazing we went back EVERY day! Each time our table was filled with more and more local delicacies, laughter and delightful conversation. We are already dreaming of returning and sharing a spectacular... More

This is one of those restaurants without stock. After you've placed your order you'll notice various staff walking to other shops. One has gone to the butchers (50 - 60 m away) to get your meats, another will go to the corner shop (within sight of your seat) to get whatever soft drinks you've ordered (no alcohol here). The food... More

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
