Average place for Paris

If you've been to France, you know it is hard to find a bad meal. Some are more outstanding than others, but hard to find a bad one. This is average, so if you are hungry, go in for food, but if you want something special go to a different place.

After a long day of walking around the city, eating at different food joints, walking around parks, we started our journey of dinner search. We came back to Rue de la Huchette after a short wall and stroll around Luxembourg garden and started looking for a place to eat. As usual, we were going through the menu and then we... More

A female employee enticed us inside the restaurant by offering a free appertif drink. The free drink was delivered as promised. Three of us shared 2 dishes which was plenty of food and absolutely delicious. We ordered couscous with vegetables and tagine (a large pot with slowed cooked vegestables). Since 2 of us are vegetarians we found this restaurant very... More

This is the second time that I have been here with a large group of (28) students. The owner has been very accommodating, and has been able to fit all of us in his restaurant at once! I'm so glad that he could because we all enjoyed the huge portions of meat, vegetables, and couscous. The atmosphere is also enjoyable... More

Sadly, our experience was not a pleasant one. We arrived at 21:50 ordered a tangine and couscous. All the people that had arrived after us received their meals promptly. By the time we received ours close to 23:00 the couscous was cold along with the meats, the bread was stale and the tangine was bland. The waiter tried to sell... More

This is my go-to place for couscous when in Paris. In the bottom of the Latin quarter amidst a plethora of ethnic restaurants, this place has a very nice atmosphere, with tons of live plants hanging from the ceiling and excellent honest couscous, that you can order with any of a range of meats, chorizo, chicken, etc. The basic couscous...

They stood on the sidewalk and enticed us in with the offer of a free drink. At the end of a disapponting experience there was no free drink. The tables are so close together you can't get in or out without your neighbors leaving their seats. But the most disappointing was when they said they had no French wines that... More

We've been coming here, on and off, for almost 20 years and are invariably warmly welcomed by the charming hostess who first weaned us off the 'Bon Couscous' next door. Quite a task when we had been patronising their rivals since the '60's. A welcome Kir while we studied the menu set the tone for the finale to our visit... More
