Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Buried in the tangle of Japanese restaurants spread across Opéra, Fine Lalla adds a touch of no-frills Moroccan seasoning to this most chichi of neighbourhoods. The venue itself is nothing to write home about – suffice to say that the decorators are fans of pink. Yet such aesthetic concerns are soon dispersed by the warm welcome you get from the staff, who invite you to pick from a range of sandwiches (€4, but on the meager side) and tagines (€8).

In both cases you're faced with a choice between meatballs topped with egg and tomato, marinated fish, or chicken seasoned with prunes or lemon. The joy of tucking into a fragrant cocktail of meat and North African spices is somewhat undone by the unappetising presentation: dishes are laid out, school canteen-like, along a counter, rather than prepared fresh in the kitchen. For on-the-go fast food flavours, you're well served; for anything more, you're best off heading elsewhere.
