Serving up exotic comfort food, this Grand Avenue secret is a favorite with big-name chefs and local celebrities. – In Short
The interior is as plain as the exterior at this two-story, converted house on St. Paul's Grand Avenue: bare wood floors and bright-blue walls. But the vibe is always warm--chef-owner Hadj Moussa greets guests, leading them to tables before dashing downstairs to cook. A sophisticated crowd includes MPR hosts and well-known local chefs. The comforting North African cuisine has French style and Moroccan spice: chicken in tomato-ginger chutney and garlic lamb sausage are popular choices.

Outstanding – I've been a regular habitue of the Fig for over a decade... and it has never disappointed. Hadj is gracious and talented, the food is delectable and affordable, and the surroundings are unpretentious and relaxing. Each and every time I've brought a guest, they've become devotees!

Savory is the word here... – This was our 2nd time at the Barbary Fig and it wont' be our last. The eceletic menu looks a little skimpy on selections, but our server gave us another 3 specials to choose from. Don't be afraid to order plenty because the portions are not huge, but neither are the prices - nothing on the menu is over $10. I had a delicious lamb entree with lentils balanced well with spices. Service was great and the chef (owner??) was really nice. Apart from a bland African wine, everything we had was prepared well and very tasty.

The Fig is Excellent! – This is an excellent restaurant - period. The food is wonderful, and Hadj treats everyone like family. It's what a neighborhood restaurant is supposed to be like. The merguez cous-cous is meaningful...

Small Portions/Cold Food – Even though the atmosphere at the Barbary Fig was nice, the portions were very small, and our food was not hot. We also thought that having to pay for bread was ridiculous.

A nice change – It is nice having a restaurant that is off the Italian/Asian track. It is a nice addition to the other restaurants on Grand Avenue.
