This restaurant offers large portions of delicious food almost in mosque. Service and menu are provided not only in French, but also in English (at least). The waiters we met were friendly, the prices were reasonable, if not low. I would like to visit this...More

The food is OK, the service is not. At all. It is by far the worst I have had in a while. First, you have to queue to get a table. Even though they are quite a few unoccupied, it is simply not organized enough....More

I don't really recommande this place. We tried tea and some cakes. It's wasn't very good. Prices are very high and the service is unfriendly.

Service is slow and unfriendly. No menu was given, no order was taken, the waiter brought two teas saying "four euros", no "welcome", no "hi". We stood up and left.

A traditional Moroccan restaurant next to the Paris mosque. The decoration is nice, but my food (lamb chops) was burned and overcooked... I was not even able to finish my food... The service is slow and unfriendly... Do not recommend it and will not go...More

One should not be scared by the crowded terrace as there is usually plenty of space inside, in a nice North-African setting. Once you find a waiter and ask to be seated you'll be taken care by friendly (and maybe a little disorganized) staff. Food...More

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

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

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!
