The Algerian food is healthy but not that tasty, especially if you like food with spices, they always say that you cannot get a tasty Algerian food from a restaurant, it has to be homemade. yet, so far this is the best place I've tried that makes a good Algerian food beside other international dishes. The seating with the traditional... More

This is a very fine restaurant although it was a little bit hard to find. The restaurant's full name is "El DJenina" starting with a D. It is a bit pricey for Algerian standards but it is worth for the food. The only downside for me was indoor smoking and the restaurant did not have a very good ventilation to... More

You might be lucky to sit next to a world leader or a local ambassador. Better book a table before coming.

Some very tasty dishes on the menu here. Even the little cover-appetisers are a treat. But the prices are too high and some of the male waiters are a bit forward and rather amateurish.

I had a wonderful dinner at Jenina. When you first walk in, you're immediately transported from the busy, noisy street outside to a calm and exclusive setting within the restaurant. The food is great, and I really enjoyed my meal here - a definite first-choice for any future visits to Algiers.

I recently visited Algiers and was lucky to have been invited to this restaurant. I subsequently returned one more time. The Décor is definitely Arabic style and wonderfully decorated. Impeccably clean, the lady owner is a professional, non obtrusive and very attentive to her clients needs. The waiters are attentive and know what they are doing. The food, especially the... More

I was wowed by the deco, algerian-andalousian style! The soup is just wonderful, the best soup I have ever eaten ! The Chakhchoukha as well was very very delicious ! If you are in Algiers you cannot miss Jenina. In addition, the location is really very good, in the heart of Algiers, near two museums (Bardo and Islamic museum), near... More

prices are not too bad (say 2000 for a main course) and the soups are good (as per previous reviews) but once you stray into fish territory it gets steep - one John Dory came to 9000 DZD. Wines ok, they have Koutoubia and Blanc d'Aboukir although the waiters (civilised decent starch-shirted chaps) did try to foist the Cuvee du... More

If you are visiting Algiers, you cannot miss Jenina! The interior is beautiful, in traditional Arabic style, nicely renovated - I had impression to be in the palace of One Thousand and One Nights. It is worth to go to this restaurant at least to spend time in such a nice entourage. Service was impeccable - quick, professional and friendly.... More
