We took the kids here on our last night in Marseille having seen the restaurant in Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown. While the food was nice I found the prices extremely high. 5 euro for a small beer, almost 9 euro for soup, and just short...of 20 euro for the non veggie couscous dishes. 1 skewer of lamb or beef included for your 20 euro! Unsurprisingly there were no North African people in the restaurant. I assume they were round the corner at restaurant Palmier enjoying the same food for 8 euro per main course! Service was friendly but slow and a bit inattentive. Our waiter kept disappearing to answer the phone as we were trying to order.More

Six of us had lunch in this wonderful Algerian couscous restaurant. Yes, the decor is a little kitschy, but the vegetarian coucous we all ordered was absolutely delicious containing beans and vegetables in a rich sauce spiced with cumin. The smoky harissa served as a...condiment was not essentially hot; it just gave another layer of flavor to the meal. I would suggest ordering the barley coucous for its wonderful texture as it is unavailability in most couscous restaurants.More

A bit of kitsch, but sincere service and friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The food is good, a bit expensive compared to other possibilities in the area, but the flavors are as they should be: savory, rich broth, traditional spice combinations, and service with a flourish. Clientele...is comfortable and familiar, lots of repeat customers. Portions are generous, but no taking leftovers with you if you can’t finish it all. Worth a try if you have the money (about 18-25 euros per person, more or less, not including wine).More

I'd been twice before and thought it would be a nice place to celebrate my wedding anniversary.. my husbands first time there.. we both enjoyed our food very much, service was top notch! Very nice atmosphere as well...looking forward to going back. Portions are very...large and the complimentary salad, garlic knot, and bruschetta is absolutely delicious!More

This is a great example of a tourist trap which has been created and re-purposed with the aim of attracting tourists and their money. You go with the aim of tasting the so called exotic North African- Algerian food while on a trip to Marseille....Your visit will be a total failure if you know a little bit about the Algerian and North African food. Shortly, stay away from here if you respect yourself. Except their names the food has nothing to do with Algeria or North Africa. Actually that does not matter for tourist who are ready to throw their money to any touristic trap. I don’t blame this place for showing no respect to their customers and serving terrible food for extraordinary prices. Go taste it and don’t forget to share it on Instagram. That's all that matters! Right?More

Having lived here for 17 years, I can confirm this place does the best couscous in the city. Really worth it and very welcoming.

Femina is a Tunisian restaurant serving couscous and other North African delicacies right on the edge of the Noallie market in Marseille. It’s a fun place with lots of atmosphere and incredible decorations on the wall. The waiters are lively and entertaining and it’s a...great place to eat. I had the lamb couscous, and my wife had a very nice salad. I know what real couscous should be because I eat lots at home (Libyan style), and I really enjoyed the one I had at Femina, which, we were told is Tunisian style.More

We were about to give up on finding this location but we were successful! The lamb specialty is a must. It's off the beaten path and that makes it even better!
