What good surprise this place and this tea... worth to visit! In a cold day it’s amazing to drink this tea and visit this place.

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

Well it was a warm day. Arrived in the restaurant around 7:30ish. Ppl. Looked a bit stressed out and unorganised. Foid came fast. I ordered a kebab, what should spend more time on a grill. Also the meat was fatty, not so good quality. So...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

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

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!
