Really Good restaurant, with a welcoming atmosphere, and a very good service! There is quite a lot of choices of food plates, and prices starting from15-28 euro. Lovely place for two and for a group dinner. You get a good taste of Moroccan food!

Had a lovely evening here with friends. The restaurant is intimate and pretty; the front of house staff were funny and helpful; even the Moroccan radio station was enjoyable, Best to reserve if you're keen as the place is not big by any means. We...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

Au P'tit Cahoua restaurant in Paris, near the Jardin des Plantes, is a gorgeous Moroccan restaurant that leaves all North African cliches behind. The comfortable and inviting dining room is full of light with crazed mosaic tables and floors, pretty pierced screens and wrought iron detailing, tented ceiling, imported lighting and big mirrors everywhere. It's cool. The menu features both the tagines, couscous and pastillas you require from your Moroccan restaurants but made more lightly and healthily, as well as some inventive dishes that will intrigue you: triangular pastry briouats with chevre, almonds and mint, chicken and mango tagine. Fans adore the marinated and fried legumes that arrive on your table as soon as you are seated, as well as the geniunely attentive service.
