“Great food and fun atmosphere”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We were looking for something different for dinner during our family holiday in France. Le 404 restaurant was the perfect break from traditional French cuisine.

Despite some of the recent reviews, we went to Le 404 because of its most great reviews and proximity to our hotel in the Les Halles area. We are very glad we went.

Our meals were excellent, the service fast, efficient, friendly and helpful, the ambiance alluring, and we were the only English speakers in what was a very full house.

Three of us had tagines (duck, lamb, monkfish) and one had lamb couscous. To start, we shared two orders of the mixed briouat (hot mezze on the menu). The food was outstanding. The meats were delicious and cooked to perfection. The sauce for the couscous dish was excellent and had amazing flavors. The briouat to start were simply wonderful...little pillows of heaven.

Our only complaint with the meal was the lack of explanation as to how the monkfish tagine was prepared. Our fault for not asking, but we did not expect it to be served with roasted vegetables and potatoes. The monkfish itself was prepared perfectly, but we did not think it was a good match for the vegetables paried with it. That is the only thing that keeps us from giving Le 404 5 stars. However, we would return again for the rest of the dishes we enjoyed.

Overall, a wonderful restaurant and a wonderful experience.

“Thank for nothing”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Made a res. two days in advance, arrived an hour early and still received the WORST seat in the house. We were stuck in a communal table between two couples "thanks 404".
I used to love this place but will never return!

“Amazing couscous and harira soup!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

My 11 year old son and I had lunch on New Year's eve. Now, he grew up with Algerian couscous since the age of 2! He loved the soup and the mechoui/merguez couscous! We don't get Algerian coucous in Toronto, so we were in heaven when we were in Paris!

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We went there to celebrate our engagement- the atmosphere was great! Beautiful interiors- a great date spot! The food was alright. Their vegetable tagine was quite bland, the cous cous wasn't great either. Their portions of cous cous dishes were MASSIVE! I felt really guilty letting a lot of it go waste.

“Delicious and comfortable meal”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

I came here with a group of 8, we were seated in the cosy upstairs area and served by a very friendly and enthusiastic waitress called Kindra. Having just visited Marrakech recently I was looking for somewhere that might live up to its foods standards and Le 404 certainly didn't disappoint. The food was delicious - the lamb in my tagine was cooked to perfection!
