An amazing and unforgettable experience, with a warm welcome and attentive service. The food was delicious and the staff were super friendly. This has to be one of the best meals I've ever eaten and the setting is just stunning - beautiful to the point of it seeming a bit surreal. Absolutely wonderful, I feel blessed to have been lucky...

An interesting historic setting in the medina. We enjoyed a mixed meze starter which was varied and very tasty. I chose the un-filleted loupe fish which was an error - very tasty but far too many bones to negotiate

If you would like to try the local cuisine in a charming atmosphere, this place is for you. The food was excellent; even for a local, it is like home made food. The waiters are amazingly helpful, and the sommelier gave as a professional recommendation for the wine! The dessert "Mahkouka" is my favorite! The life Andalusian music played on... More

We got a reservation for two at 8:00 pm in this lovely place in the heart of the medina that is adjacent to a lot of government buildings. The place looks like a renovated old house in the kasbah district, elegant and very charming. We ordered three main dishes and a bottle of local wine two mint tea and two... More

While the food is good (great by Tunisian standards), you have to see this place. The restaurant is in an old mansion in La Medina. Le mosaic tiles are fabulous and this adds to the charm. The service was efficient and the music was perfect. this was one of our best experiences in Tunisia.

I went there for dinner with friends. Starters and main courses (I recommend any "couscous" of course) were delicious, but we did not enjoy the desserts.

Great food, amazing historic surroundings with accompanying music and a good wine menu. We were told at the hotel that Dar El Jeld was the best restaurant in Tunisia and it certainly lived up to it.
