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

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

I know the place very well about a dozen visits over the past 10 years and I can say the place can be spectacular but also just average sometimes. If you are looking for traditional Algerian food in a nice setting, this is the place to go! Try the traditional tomato soup Chorba with bourek, a sort of fried dumpling... More

It is quite rare walking into a restaurant that you instantly know you are up for a great meal. Jenina gives you that exact feeling. Several Algerian friends suggested Jenina for a good hearty traditional Algerian meal and recommended that I book given that its a place favored by expats and diplomats and get quite busy at night. On ringing... More

Food very algerian, done well. Wine list was good. Food was yummy. Shame about the smoking all around the place. Service a bit slow and not efficient, but they did try.

Went there 2 years ago, and took some business partners last time, really dissappointed, it seems that the prices got higher, and the quality went down, it is a shame since the first time I loved it, they should make more efforts,

Friendly waiters, elaborated food, totally recomended for a business meal. Price wise is accordance with the status of the restaurant which is as I been informed among the most popular in Algiers, 2 persons with Entre + Soup + Land + wine (algerian) + Dessert, 120 EUR. :-)
