An unassuming place with really good couscous generously served. Appetizers are the usual, desserts well above average. As for their couscous, the base vegetables with broth and the semolina come in large quantity for the whole table, with the meats together on a serving tray....More

What a lovely and friendly place. Get the Algerian dishes and relish the simple clean flavors! Sit at Mitterrand's table. Close to everything and great hidden history.

This place is off the beaten track and a great find. The past French president Mitterrand ate there and one of the dishes, which we ordered, was named after him. The service was prompt and very friendly. We were seated at the same table as...More
