Description: Na een avondje dineren in ons restaurant is iedereen een couscousfan. De keuze is snel gemaakt want er zijn slechts drie couscousschotels waaruit je kunt kiezen. De ingredienten zijn vers en de smaken blijven heel puur na bereiding.Je gaat er ook nog weg met een supergezond gevoel, dankzij de zeven verschillende groentes in de couscous. Ons restaurant is een goede keuze in deze tijd van recessie, want je komt lachend naar buiten en dat is niet alleen vanwege de lage rekening.

“Simple and good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

I come here often. It's a great place for a simple and not too expensive dinner.
The food is exactly what you see on the picture - Couscous with seasonal vegetables, and merguez sausages or extra meat if you want.

Make sure to get some harissa and lentil sauce with your couscous for extra taste.

“Simple taste of North Africa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

In Amsterdam, there are a lot of places where you can eat cheap but you have to know where you should be. Looking for a really well-filled plate, then the Cous Cous club comes highly recommended.
The menu is simple; The choice of three couscous dishes, veggie, with lamb or a la maison which means with lamb, merguez and chicken. Everything is organic and local. The food is steamed and exactly how a good couscous should taste.
The owner Wouter was open for suggestions to the menu. We had a nice chat in the very clean kitchen. And for dessert, they have a fabulous home made tarte-tartin. Highly recommended.

The music played is a private collection of North African 78 RPM Vinyl albums which adds a nice warm atmosphere.

“Bohemian Casual Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We had a lamb and a veggie couscous between us and enjoyed them. The menu is pretty limited, but the couscous is excellent.

Service was friendly and very relaxed. We enjoyed funky background music and a bohemian casual atmosphere.
