Simple yet plentiful dishes. The lamb chops (3 in an order) were meaty and tasty, as were the lamb kabobs. Both accompanied by large portion of French fries. Good bottle of house red. Would recommend for basic but hearty meal at good price point.

A small restaurant in a quiet side street about 50 metres off Boulevard St Germain that is only about 200 metres from Notre Dame Cathedral. The house specialty is Couscous with a variety of both vegetarian & meat dishes. They can serve your meal as mild or as spicy as you like. We enjoy food more on the spicy side and were not disappointed. We enjoyed a grilled large chilli dish that was not on the menu, vegetarian Couscous & a meat dish call President's Couscous. These were served with a Harissa paste ... Algerian chilli paste that had a fabulous flavour but be warned try it before you put too much on, as it is very hot. The service was both helpful & friendly & we are going back with friend before we leave Paris.

The sets are to be avoided, with cheap chips and salad. The kebab was overdone and dry. But the mutton metchoui was simply divine. My kids, who'd had the sets, asked why the accompanying couscous was the finest and fluffiest they've ever eaten. Whatever we'd made out of the box was far coarser and blander. The mutton is strong and gamey if you're able to appreciate meat in its v pure form. The hearty meal (which should really be shared due to its generous portion) was lovely: the mutton, the veg broth and couscous.

My friend and I ate here one night during a week stay in Paris.
The food was less than impressive. Many items on the menu were not availble.
By far, the most disappointing meal had during a month long vacation in Europe.
I would not return.

Very qualitative north african food. The meat is particularly good. The mechoui is excellent. I recommend it for a diner with friend, family, but not for "THE romantic night out". The crew is very nice and attentive, the decor is basic. But If you want a very good and inexpensive couscous or tagine. It definetly the place to go ...
