Simple and delicious - Edit

To start with, the owner of the restaurant is absolutely adorable, and the restaurant's dining room is very nicely furnished and decorated : it made me feel comfortable right away.
Then the food : everything is vegetarian/vegan (I think most dishes are vegan but I asked about mine just in case) and really good. I had a creamy split pea velouté with Moroccan spices which was so comforting, and a killer tajine with green beans and candied lemon with a side of couscous perfumed with cinnamon.
The menu including starter, main course and dessert (I has to give it to my boyfriend since there is honey in pretty much every pastry.. 'sigh') will cost you 10e, so the price-quality ratio is extremely decent.

Waiting for a vegan Moroccan pastry !

Pros: really good food, extremely friendly staff, low prices

Chaleureux et excellent - Edit

Toujours très bien accueillis par un adorable monsieur, il est possible de déguster dans ce cadre chaleureux de délicieuses tajines (patate douce-poire miam) pour un prix tout à fait raisonnable. C'est toujours un plaisir d'y retourner!

small but worth the search - Edit

came across this cafe by chance. cheap and comfortable. 3 courses 10 euro. salad was excellent , the main course based on tangines (Moroccan) was very tasty and Moroccan in flavour, with the desert tray giving a greta selection of cakes and tarts. we were asked if we wanted more ( no extra charge). Even asked if we wanted a top up of drinks which were teas. Just two people waiting /cooking/serving. English is ok to speak. my tagine sweet potato and eggplant, a couscous was excellen

Pros: small and cosy, tasty food, no alcohol.

Cons: hard to find

Quality food, warm and friendly owner - Edit

Cosy little Moroccan restaurant and tea salon located in the historical centre of Toulouse. The food was delicious and at a very affordable price (the lunch menu which included a soup, a main course and a dessert was only 10 euros or so!). The owner was a lovely man who was very warm and hospitable. Would definitely recommend this place.

Pros: Possible to get a lunch menu even past the standar, Affordable, Good location

Moroccan quality food! - Edit

This restaurant is fully vegetarian and uses butter to cook rice and semolina but if you call the owner one or two days before, he will be very pleased to cook you something vegan, even desserts (ask which of them are free from egg, milk and honey). Food is of great quality, really tasty with plenty of flavour. We had a tagine of sweet potato and eggplant, a couscous and various salads (tomato and a carrot cream). The owner asked us if we wanted more of the main dish and served us a second for free! He is very friendly and helpful and can make you what you want if you call him before (vegan desserts for example). The place is pleasant, in a Moroccan style. And finally, it is very cheap in comparison to food quality and quantity. We paid 13 euros for a 3-course-meal with supplement and a delicious homemade watermelon-basilico juice. Highly recommended!

Pros: tasty food, inexpensive, very friendly owner, vegan-friendly, pleasant place, central

Cons: not open in evening
