reputedly the most expensive place in town

before going here I was told it's the priciest restaurant in town. Nice airy terrace up by the monument - first right after the roadblocks as you enter the Bois. Menu was fish based and good - prawns and squid then a steak of white fish, merou would be my guess but I didn't manage to get a clear... read more

Awesome food. Was rather full from a late lunch. Managed to slip in some starters and a great Dessert (Vanilla ice-cream covered in crushed roasted Almonds).

Expensive, but for a special occassion or with visitors to Algiers, you must stop in. And, they serve wine, really good wine!!! Make sure you know how to get there, as its down a small road you just may miss.

Do not be fooled by the big menu, half if it is not available. Good service, good wine list, all the inn algeriens are there. A bit pricey.

We went to Tantra on a Wednesday night with a large group, about 12 people. We had to change our plans so we didn't have a reservation, but the staff was very accommodating and took great care of us. We had a nice table outdoors, and it was quiet and charming. The calamari appetizer was the best I've had! They... More

I already knew Tanta for a few years back. I went with a few friends to dinner last night and the result was obvious. Very good. The wines are not the best topic inTantra. Yesterday they gave me to chose between 3 or 4 national wines. I was forced to chose Koutoubia because it was the only one that was... More
