Description: As soon as you push "figue & olive"'s door, colors and smells wrap you in a mediterranean atmosphere. Delicate mix of traditionnal tunisian food and french cooking melt in your mouth:home made salted pies (goat cheese,fig...) fresh mixed salade of your choice (spices and fruit added). For tea time, refined tunisian cakes or "home made" french cakes. At the rear, a high standard and refined grocery store offers you all kind of olive oil and its derivated food.

The owner of this restaurant was warm and welcoming. We had just arrived in Paris and he was the perfect welcome to the city. The food was absolutely delicious. It was fresh and tasty. We would definitely return to this restaurant.

Perfect vegetarian place, however they have many other dishes as well. Owner was wonderful and explained the entire menu in English. He suggested the lamb, which did sound very good, before I mentioned being a vegetarian. About a 10 min walk from the Catacombs if you are in that area. My husband had the vegetarian tagine (although I'm not sure thats what they call it in Tunisia, I just can't remember the name) and I had the quiche. The quiche was good, but his tagine was delicious. The place is small, quaint, and delicious. You can tell the owner really enjoys what he does and that they use quality ingredients. They even have a few items available for purchase. We went for lunch with no problem, but I would think reservations may be advisable for dinner.

We read the reviews sbout this place in Tripadvisor. As my wife is strictly vegetarian, that will still eat dairy food, I decidrd that we pay a visit there. The owner has been very helpful and friendly. The food was prepated on the spot according to our specific wishes. The place uses highly selective products from around the mediterranian. The quality of the ingredients is superb. We felt like being served at one's own house. It was not cheap, but due to the private service and excellent taste of the authentic and unique food, it was worthwhile after all.

I was really excited to go to this place based on the reviews I had read and their website. But I was a little disappointed. I was there around lunch time and the only one in there. As a vegetarian I could eat their quiches or pasta. I asked which was the best quiche and was told the leek and gorgonzola, so I ordered that. It was heated up and brought to me, and it tasted fine. But I didn't want something that tasted fine- I wanted something that tasted excellent. The owner seemed nice and the interior was cute. When I went to pay I was charged one euro more than the price that was listed for a piece of quiche. I should've said something about it, but I didn't. It's fine if you're hungry and in the neighborhood but don't go out of your way to eat here.
