High quality Moroccan restaurant in the Marais. Traditional cuisine and atmosphere, great tagines, coucous, etc.

Right next door to the famous Andy Wahloo bar which is also in Moroccan style (decorated with  modern Moroccan relics, fun atmosphere for drinks) So you can start your night with the happy hour there and head over for a great meal at the 404 just after.

Price was reasonable, around 30 euros per person including a main meal, dessert and some wine.

Des Si et Des Mets

Brand new restaurant in the 18th arrondissement, specializing in gluten free cuisine!

This restaurant features both traditional and fusion recipes served in a modern yet inviting setting on the famous rue Lepic in the 18th.

The service is friendly, the prices are very reasonable, and the food is inventive. A well awaited treat for those who have an intolerance to gluten, as well as anyone who wishes to try the gluten free diet to see if its for them.

The restaurant has only been open for a few months, but hopefully will last much longer!
