“Memorable DIning Experience”
Reviewed 30 October 2011

Immediately upon arrival you are greeted with a number of delicious starter dishes, all of which were either vegetarian or fish. We were warned by the waitress not to fill up on these and she was correct. The couscous with cod was served family-style and was delicious with generous portions. We understand the restaurant is kosher although not formally certified. All in all a unique dining experience and a delicious taste of Tunisian dishes.

“Our worst dining experience in Paris”
Reviewed 31 October 2010

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 tasted as if the chicken had been quickly dipped in tepid water - it was completely tasteless. The grilled veal was a slab of charred meat, equally tasteless. The service was nonchalant and indiffierent, though I speak French. France is full of North African restaurants which serve wonderful cuisine. This one was an unmitigated disaster! Their claim to fame seems to be photos of Sarkozy and Enrico Macias beaming down from the walls. My advice: Don't dine with them!

“Great kosher couscous”
Reviewed 6 October 2010

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 you've ordered. Soooo good that you eat it without complaining a single moment.
