My wife and I had always greatly enjoyed eating in the Royal Berbere but as we had not been able to visit Paris again in the last two years or so it was with some trepidation that we returned to the restaurant on our first night back in the city last week. Would the food still be as good, the wine so unusual and highly drinkable? We need not have worried, because once inside we realised that the restaurant was still being run front of house by the same friendly, efficient manager. The menu is still highly varied, with a good range of starters, couscous meals and tagines, and desserts. We in fact went twice to eat here during our stay and I had an excellent lamb and prune tagine the first time and a couscous meal the second time, with lamb, mutton and spicy merguez sausages, and the addition of vegetables, chickpeas, golden sultanas and a meaty broth/sauce. With harissa on the side this was deeply hearty and satisfying. My wife's meals were greeted with delight too and she intends to post her own review, so I won't describe them here.The Algerian rose wines we ordered each time on advice of the manager were first rate and went ideally with the meals.
All in all an excellent couple of evenings spent in a comfortable, friendly and homely restaurant that deserves its longevity in the neighbourhood and its continued success.
