The food is very good and fresh, the atmosphere is warm. The restaurant is nicely decorated in mediterranean style without being tacky. The service is efficient: you don't wait for hours to get your order, even when the restaurant is crowded (which happens often, actually). Since the place is often packed full, be aware that it gets noisy and the... More

The place is warm and the grill excellent. They are accommodating in the busiest times. The seating is a little tight in crowded times. Good simple couscous and service. Go.

Sometimes it is difficult to have friends and for everyone to eat couscous. Their wooden grill not only gives you the possibility to have grilled lamb or chicken to accompany your couscous but for example also a fantastic beef "pavé", we tried the Roquefort sauce ( miamy). Mons presently the cultural capital of Europe and a must see while in... More

I ordered coucous with merguez, and a plate with an assortment of desserts (with honey). Positive: the chick peas, harissa and raisins offered on the side, and the huge portion (not necessary for me, but if you're hungry there's certainly enough); yummy dessert (Mediterranean style, similar to Greek and Turkish desserts) Negative: not a huge amount of flavor in the...

Nice food but, really, 20 mins to take the wine order, 10 mins after the second reminder before it arrived? More than 20 mins between each course, and that's how long it took to catch the Waiters' eye and attract him over. Then, most of the desert choices from the menu were not available and, finally, another 20 mins after... More

This restaurant is right in our neighborhood and we finally decided to check it out and were not disappointed. The atmosphere is great and even though no one really spoke English when we visited, we made it work. The House Couscous for two has become our go-to dish. It arrives with more than enough couscous, vegetables in broth and a... More

Arrived in Mons on Monday evening. Lots of restaurants closed. Happened to noticed this one. Had locals in for food. Food freshly cooked and tasty. Even though our French was limited we managed to order a lovely meal. Service steady and reliable. Food and beer/wine good. We had an enjoyable evening. Although we didn't order it, the tagine and couscous... More

Great food, good price and great service. By far the best place I have eaten that is close to the Grand Place.
