I think its better for tea and pastries

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... read 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. Matter of fact we just got home from a 2 month trip and looking at the pictures I decided to let other travelers know how bad it was at... More

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.

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.

This 1926 tiled building is unique in Paris. Conveniently situated near the National Museum of Natural History and the Jardin des Plantes, it's a great spot for Moroccan flavor and generous portions. Service was a little slow on a busy Sunday afternoon but we loved the menu.

We had a early dinner here. We chose to have the chicken tagine with cous cous. The deco of the restaurant was very rustic and traditional, loved the tables (which we huge big trays). We all enjoyed our meal, very traditional. Nice atmosphere. Located right round the corner form the mosque so nice to go and pray and then have... More

The restaurant is inside the Paris Mosque, which incidentally I was told is really not a place you want to go to for hammams and the various esthetic offering because it is supposed to lean on the dirty side. The food is fine I guess, but two blocks away there's a far better Moroccan restaurant on the bd Saint Marcel,... More

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.
