Served by authentic Tunisian with the pleasure of finding that Enrico Macias "Gaston" is a patron. I know this is going over 99% of the heads of anyone reading this. For the aficionado of Arab foods this is a must. The atmosphere is Jewish and...More

A really typical Tunisian restaurant where I had a wonderful lamb couscous (with meat balls and a lot of meat, contrary to what Denis C. says in his review from 19/12). The service was really typical and friendly, the the place was filled with regular...More

We ordered the lamb couscous & the chicken couscous. Both lacked seasoning & flavour, and those 2 dishes alone cost €51, add the bottle of wine (which was of mediocre quality at best) and the bill for the 2 of us came to 86 €!!!...More

Our party of four (two of whom were vegetarian) dined at La Boule Rouge last week, because a review on another website stated "vegetarians love this place!" Except for the kemia (small starters) which were good, NOTHING on the menu was vegetarian. The chicken couscous...More

Once you're seated, the most difficult is to refrain from eating all the great little salads that the waiter has set on the table. Plenty of them and I just wish I could cook this way. Then, when you just feel full, arrives the couscous...More

Very nice Tunisian-Jewish place, famous for its great kemia, the Tunisian mezze or tapas, that are offered for free the minute you are seated. Let it follow by grilled daurade or another one of the terrific fishes they serve, and you can't go wrong. President...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
