Delicious Moroccan Food

In a very beautiful interiors, you are transferred directly to North Africa with its ambiance & cuisine. Harira Soup is so delicious (7 euros) and it constitutes a complete meal by itself. I took Kebab with rice and peas, it was ok but small quantities. My friend took Tajine agneau, pruneaux... read more

The cafe's walled courtyard is my favorite place in Paris to stop for tea year-round. In summer, the trees provide welcome shade and singing birds. In winter, I come during nice weather to enjoy a reprieve from overheated interiors. Spring and Fall often bring the perfect temperatures for sitting here. I always order the excellent mint tea and occasionally a... More

Just went to the spa with some girlfriends to relax after a day of sightseeing - it was an OK experience and will try a hamam again - but not this place. This facility is tired and cramped. Poorly laid out and absolute minimum of service. Can't believe they don't even provide water ( unless you drink it straight out... More

I have been travelling for many years, in North and South America, Africa, Asia and all over Europe---------this place had the worse service I have ever seen. Rude barely covers it.

Ultramarine, turquoise, chrome yellow, fig trees and little birds eating crumbs out of your hands. Mint tea or coffee for only 2 euros. Inside was decorated exotically with warm colours and with enormous brass tables. The couscous lunch came with so many extras.

it gets very packed on weekend days but it was a bit quieter on Monday lunchtime. We had very tasty lamb and chicken tagines with prunes and almonds (be careful of the stones in the prunes!). The courtyard is used for tea (mint) and cakes but there is a lovely restaurant inside where they server delicious traditional meals.

First of all: Its packed, especially full of families. I love tajine and couscous and arabic decor so I thought it would be fun. Unfortunately, I can't really understand why its so popular. It just does not seem very clean inside, service is unfriendly and the food is way too salty for my tastes. I think a better bet would... More

This is a special place with indoor and outdoor seating. If you don't like pigeons, sit inside where there is plenty of room. I ordered mint tea (absolutely delicious) and I thought kebabs with couscous. We were brought lamb so tender it was falling off the bone, a soup, couscous, garbanzo beans and sweet golden raisins. My husband contested. Well... More

Interesting, authentic meal and restaurant. Waiters were bit grumpy and the food was served too quickly I thought, we were done in an hour. They tried to remove my plate before I'd finished.We had 4 starters, 4 mains and badot water and it cost €106. Tagines were v good.

If you are in Paris for more than three days and enjoy cakes and pastries, you have to have tea and cakes at the Mosquee! It's just an institution, and sitting in the sunny garden talking about things French while stuffing your face with gorgeous Arabic sweet pastries cannot be beaten.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
