“Not sure what happened to the reviewers...”
Reviewed May 17, 2010

Not sure what happened to the reviewers who provided bad feedback because enjoyed it immensely. Great food, freindly staff, cozy if busy location on quiet street less then one block from Faidherbe-Chaligny metro stop! 72 euro price without alchol was not cheap but not outragious either! A great way to check out a little "French colonial" during visit to Paris!

“A fun restaurant with great food”
Reviewed May 10, 2010

Finding the Mansouria was a happy accident - we arrived at our hotel in the Bastille district and my husband wanted a couscous dish. The concierge directed us to the Mansouria and by a stroke of luck a table was being vacated as we arrived.
Now I've never been to Morocco but the interior of the Mansouria made us feel as if we were almost there, with its low lighting and furnishings predominately in shades of red and gold. The menu offers a selection of North African staples and the food was excellent, while the Moroccan red wine was perfectly good. But one of the best things about this restaurant is the atmosphere, led by a charming lady who roamed the room, checking on everything. And because the tables are so closely packed in, you can't help but get into conversation with your neighbours. Just one word of advice - do book for a weekend night. I think we paid about 70 euros for two.

“So disappointing. You'll find much better elsewhere.”
Reviewed October 15, 2009

My wife and I love couscous and were looking forward to this dinner with some friends who told us this restaurant was great. But what a disappointment it was. The food was OK but nothing extraordinary. And the service was so bad !!! You could feel the young waitress didn't like her job. She was really grumpy and not professional at all. After asking four times for some water, one of us had to stand up and go to the bar pick up some water himself! The waitress wouldn't serve the plates on the table, we had to take the plates from her hands because she didn't want to make the effort of going around each of us and serve us individually!!! And while we were freezing because the air conditionning was too strong, the people in the other room were suffocating because it was to warm there...
All this bad experience for more than 35 euros each...
There are so many good Morrocan restaurants in Paris, you can avoid this one.

“a great way to try Moroccan food”
Reviewed August 21, 2009

The wait staff at Mansouria were gentle, helpful, and responsive. Food was fantastic. The atmosphere was authentic, romantic, and comfortable. You've got to like couscous because it is in everything. Try the mint tea after dinner. Highly recommended when you are in Paris.
