We arrived with our pram which can sometimes be a problem in Paris but the restaurant was very accommodating and we had a great table upstairs. Service was friendly, lots of different options for couscous and tagines. Food was fresh and tasty. A little more expensive than our usual couscous place but definitely worth it!

One of my favorite cous cous places in Paris, (and I have been to many..) Owned and operated by 2 charming brothers. Highly recommended! .And perfectly situated across the street form Alimentation Generale for some after dinner music.

Excellent food! i had the couscous au merguez but my friend had the tagine which i still want - the vegetables were fresh and delicious! The orange with cinnamon for dessert is very refreshing and at lunchtime, it's a better deal to get the "menu" than to go a la carte... so might as well get it. Friendly and good... More

This restaurant was a short walk from our hotel on a day we had already wandered so far our feet hurt. The place is very simple, smelled fabulous, and was lively. The service was fast and friendly, the portions more than generous and the food delicious. The bill when it came only added to the smiles. This is a great... More

A small place, cute decoration. The cous cous was nothing much, which was dissopointing. The pastilla was great n so was the pastries. The service is good and you could see the lady cooking. All in all I would not make a 2nd visit.

Small cute little place located in a very multicultural hippyish street, the famous street (Rue) Jean-Pierre Timbaud. You may have the same couscous for a few euros less anywhere else, but at L'homme Bleu couscous are very well cooked and tasty and you'll have no room for dessert or any other thing. Be careful with how much and what you... More

(and the kids say the desserts are fantastic as well) the crew is nice and competent. a place... More

We had dinner at this restaurant on the lower floor, which feels like a small cave. The atmosphere is lovely and the food was delicious. If you're a fan of kir, then I suggest trying the fig kir. The mains (Tagines and Couscous) were huge and one fed 3-4 of people. All in all, we had a great time.

We first visited L'homme Bleu 12 years ago and absolutely loved the food. Their Tagines and Couscous were superbe as was the B'stilla. We had the opportunity to try it again last month and while the owners had changed and the traditional Moroccan deco was scarce, the cuisine was just as good.
