Description: Na een avondje dineren in ons restaurant is iedereen een couscousfan. De keuze is snel gemaakt want er zijn slechts drie couscousschotels waaruit je kunt kiezen. De ingredienten zijn vers en de smaken blijven heel puur na bereiding.Je gaat er ook nog weg met een supergezond gevoel, dankzij de zeven verschillende groentes in de couscous. Ons restaurant is een goede keuze in deze tijd van recessie, want je komt lachend naar buiten en dat is niet alleen vanwege de lage rekening.

“Bohemian Casual Atmosphere”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

We had a lamb and a veggie couscous between us and enjoyed them. The menu is pretty limited, but the couscous is excellent.

Service was friendly and very relaxed. We enjoyed funky background music and a bohemian casual atmosphere.

“Quirky, cool, great value.”
Reviewed 20 April 2013 via mobile

What a find. We stepped of the tram in de pip and stumbled into this little cafe with just three items on the menu.

Huge serving of lamb, steamed vegetables, cous cous and Harissa.

Heaven on a plate, just pure comfort food.

Service was fast and friendly.
Great value for money, lovely atmosphere, eclectic decor.

As previous reviewer pointed out, it couldn't be farther from the stag parties, red light and cannabis cafes.

“For people who like pure and honest food”
Reviewed 20 October 2012

For starters, this place is in De Pijp area and not the Red Light District.
Its a great place if you're looking for something tasty and healthy to eat and happen to like the one dish they serve here: couscous. It comes in 3 variations: the basis is vegetarian, good quality couscous with big steamed vegetables and home-made harissa (I recommend ordering the lentil sauce with this one). Or order same with 2 merquez sausages or the royale which adds an extra bit of lamb meat. Simple? Yes, but if you appreciate the taste of real food, this is perfect. There are no starters but do check out the dessert (almond cake, tarte tatin). The atmosphere is a bit hip Parisian, the music a wonderful mix of for instance old French and Tango. Many locals come here before or after a visit to next door's Rialto. A popular art movie house where you may find a film from your country: France, Iran, Brazil, China, Eastern Europe, Africa etc. Worth checking out! So if you want a night out like the locals, now you know what to do.

“Cozy, no-frills food with fresh ingredients”
Reviewed 10 December 2011

Really simple couscous restaurant, without a menu - you choose from standard couscous, couscous royale and vegetarian couscous! Friendly staff and the owner is working too. The coucous is really good, with homemade fresh ingredients and as much extra stock and harissa as you want. One north African wine at a reasonable price and homemade tarts & cakes and good coffee. In it's sort this is a world class restaurant; even if you don't take people there to impress them with the entourage! I go there as often as I can.....
