This restaurant is off the beaten path tucked away in a quiet part of the 16th arrondisement but its worth a detour for some tasty Moroccan fare. The room is nicely decorated (though I could do without the flat screen TV in the corner), service is friendly and the tagines are very good - actually the best I've had in... More

We stopped here by chance and found it to be very friendly with good Moroccan cuisine. My wife had a tagine and I ordered the pastilla. Both were excellent. A warm welcome in cosy surroundings. We will return.

The 16th arrondissement is largely residential, but visitors will find at least three reasons to go there: the Marmottan Museum, which houses the world's largest collection of works by Claude Monet, the Guimet, an amazing museum of Asian art, and Oum el Banine. On a recent sunny day, my husband and I combined a visit to the Marmottan with a... More

I organized for English colleagues of Lloyd's of London a lunch yesterday One of them, born in French Algeria is a big fan of couscous. Being myself born there, I'm demanding on the quality of this dish that does not support mediocrity. So I chose Oum El Banine a renowned restaurant in the classy part of the 16th district of...

We found this in a street near our hotel and the experience was so good we returned again. The staff including the manager were so welcoming with tips on the best wines and menu selections, and the complementary appetiser was sensational. Additional elements such as scented hand wash and the Morrocan serving of mint tea made for the best meals... More

This is a bit of a favourite and we have eaten here a few times. It was always going to be a favourite after our first visit, when the Manager returned to the table after we had ordered in order to recommend a different Moroccon wine to the one we had chosen with our food. He suggested that a cheaper... More

For desert we had... More

Having spent a couple of weeks in Morocco some time ago, I turned out to be a huge fan of its fabulous food and the exquisite atmosphere of its restaurants. Oum el Banine is a very small, family-run spot in a quiet 16me arr street, which provides good samples of Moroccan flavors. The tagines we had were excellent, and the... More
