Nice restaurant but too expensive

I liked restaurant dark El Jeld. With old architecture. Service is very good and following international standards. Everything is perfect. But you need to make reservation prior your coming.

The restaurant location is in the old town named "Medina El Arbi" in a typical traditional home very well decorated. The staff were very welcoming and attentive to our requests. Dar El Jeld is the place where you can enjoy and discover a nice selection of very tasty Tunisian food and dessert. The prices are above average but it's worth... More

Located in the old city, not too much is visible from the outside. But after knocking on the door, you are welcomed into a well-preserved and pristine old house converted into the most beautiful restaurants. Traditional ceramic tiles cover the walls, absolutely gorgeous. Authentic Tunisian menu with many variations on European dishes. The seafood salad was very generous with all... More

Dar El Jeld should be a must stop for every tourist as it combines traditional architecture with traditional food with good service. Entering Dar el Jeld I had to spend a few minutes touring around and discovering the house, the traditional architecture as well as traditional furniture and decoration. It was a sublime few minutes traveling a hundred years ago.... More

We knocked on the big yellow door, and were warmly greeted by a young man presenting jasmine flowers. I wish all restaurant entrances were like this. We hadn't booked but they found us a table on the first floor overlooking the old courtyard. The building was beautiful and well maintained. The service was impeccable and only bettered by the food.... More

little tough to find until we realized a lot of the nicer restaurants the door is closed and you knock. Impressive house with attractive staff. Great service and food. It was a comfortable and romantic meal and I have a feeling we would have given it 5 stars if we could go back.

In general the food and drinks are overpriced here but its a place to visit. Open roof and the charm of the old building make it a nice place to visit. The food was however just ok They did have wine/alcohol on offer Service ws friendly but i guess we just had a bit higher expectations. El Ali a bit... More
