Aux Portes de l'Orient Restaurant In Paris

The Aux Portes de l'Orient is a restaurant that has a North African, Islamic style feel and is quite aptly situated within the oldest mosque in France.

You can soak up the oriental and relaxing atmosphere by making yourself at home under the Cedar tree arches sitting on cushions outside or perhaps if it not such a nice day you would prefer comfortable armchairs, or on benches around the large tables that look like copper plates.

When it comes to the interior of this Paris restaurant, it is very traditional with beautifully painted ceilings, ceramic tiles, mosaics, pottery and many other items from places such as Morocco and Tunisia, to provide a tranquil ambience accompanied by oriental music.
