Good food, slow service

Food is good, especially turbot and salmon are delicious. Menu is impossible to read for foreigners who cannot speak french like me. It is written on a small blackboard with tiny letters and it is impossible to read in a softly illuminated ambiance. Service is very slow. Finally don't forget to... read more

This restaurant is next to Tantra and has high quality standarts. In a city where its hard to find these kind of standarts please go and try it.

What disappoints me the most are the waiters. Compared to other equivalent restaurants where the waiters come out of international hospitality management program and hotel management training, those of "Au bon Gibier" have no education at all and come out the street. I invited a colleague of mine who was visiting Algiers. Being on the terrace, he made himself a... More

Nice athmosphere, lovely place, but too much time waiting for the food. The waiters arent very kind, but the good vine is enought to forget the bad aspects. Maybe i come back....

This really was a pleasant surprise on our last visit to Algiers. We had a lovely starter to share with veal tongue, spicy green peppers, fish rolls, veal cheek, lots of different kinds of bread and nice local white wine. For mains we had grilled dorado others had salted dorado. Both were very tasty. Try it!

Give more value to the appearance than the real value. Food wasn't exceptionally good. My guest that weren't dressed as chic as other customers. They were just dressed in shirts, but the waiters were making comments about them right next to us in arabic, but they didn't know who they were in reality. The menu was written in an ardoise...

Given that this is the capital city of the country and this establishment is rated by fellow TripAdvisor’s placing it in the top ten I was expecting something really special. The ambiance is good; the staff were busy and attentive although a request for more bottled water had to be given to two separate waiters before it arrived. I had... More

This restaurant is right across the Martyrs Memorial (Maqam Echahid) along with a few others like La Tantra. Personally, in this area it is my favorite for the quality of the food and the charming setting. It is one of the few places where you can get decent salmon (hard to find). The lightening is soft and the decoration is... More

Au Bon Gibier has survived the restaurant scene in Algiers for many years simple because of its consistency of food and service. The menu is extensive for Algiers, has some classics (Duck a l'Orange, Tournedos Rossini and steaks done to your hearts content) and even has a very large selection of Duck dishes, which is unusual for Algiers restaurants but...
