    We will be back

    The cous cous was excellent as always -- we also had a the avocado on seven-grain toast appetizer which was really great - finally, we had a goat cheese and tomato appetizer that was very good. We got there early so there wasn't a wait and the service was friendly. The place is quite small but didn't feel like people were hovering. We enjoyed it and will be back.

    Chillax here with good food good wine

    I've gone to this place twice now and still think its amazing. Try the morroccon cous cous with the hummus on top--it is just superb as well as the Tuna Ceviche--the waiter described it to perfection. The atmosphere is great, you can literally hang out here for hours, drink really good Riesling. We all love it!

    I like it alright

    I've been here several times for Sunday brunch and, for the most part, I like it a lot. The space is very cool, the location ideal and the food mostly good. Wasn't crazy about the cous cous "tower" but love the baked feta, hachi parmentier and baked eggs and salmon. Ditto the hot chocolate with cocoa paw print and little candy on the side. The hostesses are always delightful and, coming with a friend, I've never had to wait more than 5 mins for a table. Sitting outside is great for hungover people-watching. Very beautiful people frequent here; last time sat next to a table of male models which was a pure visual delight, as well as a Jared Leto spotting at the counter. Come here if you want a hipper, more chic ambiance than Cafe Habana and way better food.

    Always perfect!

    We always do delivery and everything arrives hot and nicely presented. We love the baked pasta.

    Nice place

    We went to the Cafe Gitane for lunch. The Menu offered choice, the food was good, the decoration was simple, the service fine and it was not very expensive.

    Always a pleasure

    The last time I went to Cafe Gitane, I sat outside feeling ragged from jetlag and the heat. The waitress, wearing her cute blue uniform dress brought me a carafe of cold water and their very strong but good coffee. I ordered a salad with pomegranate syrup and goat cheese rolled in saffron, and baked eggs in a spicy tomato sauce. Like many things on the menu, they were strange combinations that could turn out horrible in the wrong chef's hands. Somehow, they seem to always turn out very very right at Cafe Gitane. As a bonus, the atmosphere is hip and relaxed. Wonderful restaurant. Wonderful location.

    Lively, eclectic, cafe-like, busy

    The food is fantastic. I started by ordering the simpler items on the menu. Some of the combinations are very interesting, so I tended to stay with what i felt was safe. Since that first encounter with Cafe Gitane in the summer of 2001, I have grown and decided to go with more exploratory dishes. I was pleased. It was maybe my sixth time going with friends from out of town. In four years, it's still my favorite place in the city to go to. They also have an excellent wine selection. They really know there stuff!
