We were delayed arriving in Paris and the restaurants were all closing, but this place was still open and they were extremely kind and nice, as well as supplying us with an excellent meal. Service was very friendly and they didn't try to hurry us. We'd definitely go back.

It was my first visit to Zerda and my wife and I where really impressed. The Ambiance is very authentic and they serve North African food from Morocco and Algeria. I had the Zerda Couscous and my wife the Berbere Tagine and they were both absolutely fabulous and delicious. The service is very friendly and the guest check average was... More

Loved the food and the ambience! The portions were really good! We ordered a chicken tagine and a grilled meat platter. The dishes were served with couscous, a broth with assorted vegetables and some sauces. Would visit again if I go to Paris.

You should have book your table if you want to have one !! (Especially on Saturday evening) Tagine or Couscous are very good, the meat is great too. There is plates for vegetarians with only vegetables. One of the best in Paris.

We walked in at around 8 PM on a warm Saturday evening without a reservation. After some consternation they found a table for us on the sidewalk. The two of us ordered an appetizer, a tagine and a couscous. I was concerned that might be a lot of food, so I asked the waiter whether the tagines and couscous were... More

This is quite a small restaurant so I went early as I hadn't been able to plan in advance - if I'd arrived later I might have been unlucky, as the place was really buzzing by the time I left. I tried the chicken tagine with preserved lemons and olives, which just hit the spot perfectly; the red wine of... More

Excellent place of choice to scratch your Moroccan gastronomic itch. Great location, quick service, and set in a cozy atmosphere. However, make a reservation if you don't want them giving you a "look". Anyway, for non-French-speaking or -understanding peoples, make sure to take some time to either translate the all-French menu or know what you want beforehand. The portions are... More
