You'd be hard pressed to find a more stunning Tunisian residence to dine in. The tiles and dining room are magnificent and elegant. There's nothing modern about this restaurant -- from the decor to the food. It's very "old school" Tunisian cuisine at the high end of the price scale; most of the entrees are in the 25-35 Dinar range.... More

This restaurant is located in the medina and you probably need to have Tunisian friends or a good guide to get there. The building is historic and beautiful and the traditional Tunisian food is excellent. Service is attentive and efficient. It was the best meal I had during a two week visit to Tunisia. Highly recommended!

We Are Lost On The Medina And We Arrive At This Restaurant. The location is beautiful, an ancient palace very typical and fascinating. There was a wedding during the dinner and a man play music, super nice. We eat cousin cousin royal, very good and plenty. Romantic!

The food here is good, better than most Tunesian restaurants, but the service level is not at par with the food.

The food when we went was decent, we had grilled fish and brik. The prices are on the high end of normal Tunisian prices, but you are paying to eat in a nice setting. However, I would recommend going to Dar Hammouda Pacha or Dar El Jeld if you are able to instead. The staff were very attentive and picked... More

This traditional restaurant is located inside Medina, in an old building transformed in restaurant. The owner provide a "shuttle" service to conduct you there from the Kasbah square, as it is difficult to find the andress of the restaurant in the labirynth of Medina. Food was mainly tunisian. The couscous was truly delicious. There was also a musician playing a... More

The restaurant is located in the heart of the Medina, the old town, in an old palace. The hand-painted tiles and old photos are definitely worth seeing. The food is mediocre and overpriced, and they do not serve alcohol to distract from it. The service is attentive but clumsy,

It's a surprise walking in from the streets of the medina. It's so calm and peaceful. The walls were filled with beautiful tiles. The staff was excellent. We started with a plate of appetizers as suggested by the waiter. that was fun as we didn't know what many of the items were. We had fish couscous, and my husband had... More

This was one of 4 restaurants we visited in the medina, and was definitely one we enjoyed the least. The menu is relatively short and we found the cooking to be nothing special, especially given the price. There is no alcohol served. The decor was lovely, and some of the other tables were able to visit up-stairs to look around.... More
