The menu at Le Souk is large and varied but the most popular items on the menu are the tagines, or slow cooked stews. They offer a vegetarian version with eggplant, seasonal vegetables, goat cheese and mint. They also offer chicken, lamb and two varieties of seafood tagine, one with red snapper alone and one with red snapper, mussels, shrimp and clams. All the tagines are quite tasty but the slow braised beef tagine is a personal favorite. The prix fix menu costs $36 per person and comes with four courses. It's a good option for those who aren't sure what they want and would like to try a bit of everything.

The cocktail menu is also unique with different and interesting drinks like the "Le Nile" which is a mixture of champagne and hibiscus flower syrup. The hibiscus flower gives the cocktail a beautiful red color.

Although the food is very good, most people come to Le Souk for the entertainment. The decor itself is entertaining. Tables are low to the floor and accompanied by lounge cushions, chairs and couches. The tall ceilings are adorned with antique lamps that add to the exotic feel of the restaurant.

Ask to sit on the top floor of the restaurant (there are three floors total) as this is where the entertainment occurs. Middle Eastern music plays as belly dancers weave in and out between tables throughout the course of the evening as you dine. You may even see the dancers balancing large swords or hookahs on their heads. The entertainment and music are what adds to the whole experience.

Late at night the top floor turns into a club and lounge. Many people come for a late dinner and stay for the nightlife.
