Set in the heart of the medina this is a beautiful restaurant with great service and a great atmosphere. It is a very popular spot with both locals and visitors however I felt the food was a little average.

The dining room is spectacular, and the experience was very enjoyable. The portions are large, and the food was terrific. The waiter showed me around the building, which... More

I asked if they were booked for the next night. They asked how many? I said one, and they said they were completely... More

We couldn't manage to make a reservation even though a very kind and smart lady found a nice table for us. The location is really nice it worth the effort itself as outside was 41C°(and we walked from quite far away). The staff is super smooth and the service within European standards. The menu is not so crowded (exactly the... More

Great traditional food. Also original. Great flavors. Discreet service. Prices not cheap but worth it. Wine selection is a good mix.

I went to Dar el Jeld several times and each time I enjoy my diner there. The food is authentic Fine Tunisian food. Portions are big and already after the appetizers we were full and couldn't finish our mains. We however insisted on having a dessert to finish this beautiful diner. The Acida of Boufreoua ( hazelnuts) is to die... More

This is an absolute must, when visiting Tunis. Right in the heart of the Medina hidden behind a yellow door, you'll find a place which is most extraordinary. There are no words for this sensational place, it's like being in a movie. btw. the food is great too.
