Le Méchoui du Prince is a Moroccan restaurant in Paris where you really feel... like a prince. Here you can taste an authentic, tasty and generous Moroccan cuisine that gives you a taste of travel!

Le Méchoui du Prince has all the makings of a royal address. It is in the heart of the Latin Quarter, a stone's throw from the Palais du Luxembourg, and nestled in the rue Monsieur le Prince that it has proudly sat since 1969. A family-run Moroccan restaurant, founded by Mohamed Amrache and now in the hands of his son, Samir Amrache.

Behind its ivory-white facade, one discovers the atmosphere worthy of a warm Ryad that wears the colors of Morocco with dignity. Under the typical beams of the old buildings of the Latin Quarter, we find dark wood tables, a harmonious reminder, set with dishes representing Moroccan craftsmanship. Other trays adorn the walls while palm trees placed in front of the windows manage to cut us from the outside world. The subdued light reflects on the mosaics that adorn the bar and the smiling welcome of the team members make us feel at home here.

The heart that has been put into the decoration is matched only by the love that is put into the kitchen. To start your tasting experience, we strongly suggest you start with La Mosaïque de Kemia, which offers you to taste three different dishes very popular in Morocco, the eggplant caviar called Zaalouk, the famous Moroccan cooked salad as well as Briouates, the puff pastry folded in triangle with cheese, tuna or minced meat. You can also warm your heart over a bowl of harira, a traditional soup.

For the dishes it is hard to miss the Couscous du Méchoui du Prince, with semolina that is mixed with a little smen, lots of vegetables, chickpeas, raisins, as well as an oven-roasted lamb shoulder, each served in separate dishes so you can compose it your way.

We also enjoy a good tagine, including one with prunes, the Casablanca, which has a harmonious mix of sweet and salty. But since we are at the Méchoui du Prince, there is also an essential dish that will delight lovers of good meat: the famous méchoui.

Finally, for dessert, we discover an unavoidable dish, the pastilla with milk. It is a bit like a mille feuille which is composed of brick sheets, almonds, cinnamon and a custard scented with orange blossom. A sweet dessert that is hard to forget.

The big bonus, one Thursday a month, the restaurant organizes the Thursdays of the Orient, an even more immersive evening during which a Moroccan orchestra plays a live concert, led by the bewitching voice of Rachid Casta, a Moroccan singer, interpreter and composer who proposes a fusion music between the Maghreb and Andalusian culture.
