“Traditional relaxed atmosphere”
Review of La Maison de Couscous - CLOSED

La Maison de Couscous
Price range: US$11 - US$23
Restaurant details
Reviewed 14 March 2013

The place is decorated as a traditional tuareg tent with wool rugs on the walls and ceiling - it feels very comfortable.

The food is delicious! We had the shorba (soup) to start with and it was flawless. Afterwards I had cous-cous for the main course. It was nice and fluffy, just like it's supposed to be. Since we were a group of friends I had an opportunity to try their rechta and chach-chucha too (both home made pasta dishes; rechta is basically thin noodles, chach-chucha wider noodles) and it was wonderful as well. Mind you: the portions are huge!

We were too full too try they home-made tiramisu (the dessert of the day) so just finished the meal with traditional mint tea. The price was average for Algiers. We will definitely be back.

It's also practical to know that you can reserve the whole place for an event, if the need be.

The place is typically algerien so nothing fancy like in Europe but if you get over the environment and order a couscous, you will receive a generous portion with fresh vegetables and very good meat and excellent couscous.
The price is also not expensive for european norms and the owner was so nice to bring us for free back to our hotel.
