The food is great. I took a mechoui and really enjoyed it. But what really struck me positively is the attention and warm welcome by the lady managing the restaurant (not sure if she's the owner), and i noticed that she gave the same attention to each and every table that came. Very knowledgeable and knows what to recommend, you... More

The food is very very good and the service is amazing. The charming hostess does an excellent job. Service is extremely professional yet relaxing and not at all stuffy. We had a set menu of Algerian food as we were part of a group touring Roman sites and it was some of the best food I have had for a... More

We received a very friendly greeting from the owner of the restaurant when we arrived for lunch. The interior of the place is striking, beautifully tiled and decorated with Algerian artifacts. Freshly baked bread, complimentary olives and spiced carots were immediately brought to the table. We ordered Shrimp Bourek for an appetizer, then Swordfish Meuniere, recommended by our waiter as...

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.
