    Très belle expérience comme toujours. On avait la chance d’assister au spectacle de danse orientale aujourd’hui. C’était pas programmé, mais il y avait un groupe qui l’a commandé. Nourriture excellente comme toujours je recommande fortement.

    Not authentic Moroccan food. A bit of a disgrace to the country actually.
    Menthe et CouscousResponded on January 18, 2024
    Hello. I believe it was well explained to you that the restaurant is not Morrocan. We clearly communicated it, and we don't serve Morrocan food. we serve Mediterranean food in general. If the recipe is not Morrocan recipe, or not matching your palate, it does not mean it does not reflect culture. There are many more countries that use the couscous and that cook in the tajine other than Morocco. Again, thank you for your constructive feedback.

    Petit restaurant à moins d’une minute de marche du théâtre St-Denis. Décor méditerranéen vieillot, service rapide et courtois. Quelques options véganes intéressantes mais qui manquaient un peu d’épices aromatiques à mon goût. Nous avons été agréablement surpris par un spectacle de baladi!

    Our experience was honestly one of kind. My boyfriend and I went out on date and did the belly dancing and dinner experience. At first the place was small but warm. The food started to come out and it was amazing! The environment I could only describe like being over for a family dinner the culture and the energetic contiguous urge to dance was amazing! And I asked if they could do something for my boyfriends birthday and and came through! This family restaurant is one you not only want to support to leave wanting to tell others about your experience. As a Resturant owner myself I’m wish this family much success and I look forward to telling everyone my experience and encourage you to go for a unique dining experience where your not only emerged in food but culture but the love this family has put knot their restaurant. Thank you guys again !

    It is the most suitable place for a romantic dinner. The music, ambiance and decor makes you travel to the wonderland. The food is absolutely fulfilling and gives you the warmth you want in such an occasion. The service is as good as it gets. I recommend it eyes closed.

    It was an amazing experience. We took many plates and shared them, all was excellent. We took the lamb tajine, the couscous royal, and chef salad as an appetizer and another sizzling merguez. I must tell the quality of food was excellent and all plates were delicious and well presented in their colourful plates. Service was very friendly and attentive. I will come back with a bigger group.

    Le seul point négatif que nous avons ressenti durant notre soirée, c'est que nous n'avons pas d'intimité du tout avec les autres clients qui sont très près de nous. Il n'y a pas d'espace entre les tables.

    Expensive for what it is. Good atmosphere (service is ok) but mediocre/bland couscous (certainly not the best we've had). I found a stone in my baklava.

    The food was truly outstanding! Only minus is the service…Not the quality as everybody was warm and friendly and did their best but the team was understaffed which we can all appreciate at the moment. Just factor in more time to make sure you can enjoy the ambiance and the succulent food!

    Lovely small restaurant with unique marocain decorations. The food was excellent. I recommend the lamb tajine. The belly dancing is fun but it takes over the tiny restaurant! If you are looking for a quiet meal go before the dancing starts. Otherwise get ready to jiggle your additional COVID belly fat 😅😂

    The Couscous Royale for two was excellent. Nice amounts of lamb shank which was very tender. Nice range of plates for those not wanting the house specialty. Staff was very accommodating with requested table separation and prices were reasonable. Seemed to be a very neighborhood place (a little out of the way) but very happy we went there.
