Enter Fatima Hal's Moroccan restaurant and you find yourself in a palace from 1001 Nights. Just as perfect as the decor is the cuisine, from it's various couscous dishes (EUR15-EUR19) to its tajines, and its unforgettable entrees. Try the Kmama (chicken with tomatoes and rose petals) as well as the Momouzia (piece of roasted lamb perfumed, after a 13th-century recipe, with Ros El Hamat's 27 spices). A la carte prices (wine included): EUR35-EUR45. Delicious Middle-East pastries for dessert.
We were in the mood for something different and non-French, so we decided on Mansouria (since it was only two metro stops away from our hotel). We were the first people seated when they opened for dinner at 7:30, but by 8:15 the restaurant was completely full of locals.
My wife and I split the massive "dinner for two" special that they had, while my parents each had their own entree. Everything was well above the norm for Moroccan food, and the service was friendly and attentive.
The best Moroccan Restaurant in Paris, I have eaten there on several occasions, I keep trying others but always return to Mansouria. Not fancy or turistic just good, and authentic. Here you don't dine you eat and you will eat very well.
