Nestled in the 5th Arrondisement, the Grand Mosque of Paris was built in the 1920s in an attractive Moorish style. The cafe, terrace and courtyard make for a beautiful environment for a refreshing cup of mint tea. On arrival, the waiter brings over a tray...More

This is a delightful little cafe, quite busy, that sits within the walls of the mosque. Open to anyone, there is an external area, which is a little sun-trap, but there is a lot of demand for those seats. We sat in the inside courtyard...More

You come here for the decor, which is typical Moroccan / Tunisian. The menu features tagines, couscous and pastries; it is OK, but nothing special compared to other restaurants in town. Note that they don't serve any alcohol.

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During

Hi there, I don't think they do but essentially you have couscous or tagine to choose from. The cakes come on a big copper tray and you can pick what takes your fancy. I would also think that many of the waiters speak... More
I'm just a bit curious as to how things work. Someone mentioned an upstairs restaurant, are there two restaurants? -upstairs and down? Do we need to make reservations? Are there vegetarian options? Are there limitations as to what you can see/access as a non Muslim or is just based on dress code? Thanks!

Nearing A is right. Also though, there are parts of the mosque that you can't go to as a non-Muslim. You can go to the steam baths!
