Our family visited Le Zaccar during a week long vacation in Paris. We could not have been more satisfied with the meal, great service and atmosphere of the restaurant!

We were not familiar with Algerian food, but will definitely seek out other opportunities to explore the cuisine. The proprietor of the restaurant was very helpful in recommending dishes for us. When we expressed satisfaction he was very proud to point out the superiority of Algerian style couscous versus that from Morocco and Tunisia. Apparently the difference is that couscous is served separately and mixed to taste at the table. Very large servings, excellent couscous, beef stew, lamb and deserts.

Highly recommended for a good time at very reasonable price!

Staying in Place D'Italie, we wanted to try north African food and saw the above reviews. It lived up to them and more. Polite service, a tasty shared starter of ratatouille and bread followed by a tender chicken tagine and some of the nicest lamb I've eaten out. Served with wholesome poached veg. The whole bill (no wine but a glass if house sangria) came to less than 40 euros. Well worth a try for a change from straightforward French cuisine.

There are of course many wonderful restaurants to rave about in Paris, but I happened upon this restaurant not knowing what to expect. It was too early in the evening for the Parisians to be dining and so I was the only patron for most of my time there.
The food was excellent! My only complaint was that I had no one to share the food with as the dish I ordered would have been plenty for two! I had the couscous with roasted lamb. When the food came out there was a large dish of couscous, a massive bowl of vegetables in broth, chickpeas, raisins and of course the roasted lamb, which was outstanding. Considering the portions, the prices were very reasonable.
***If you have been shopping in the Centre Commerciale Italie, you are already too close to pass it by. Enjoy!
