Incredible service, good food situated in the medina

I stumbled upon this restaurant while cruising through the medina. It ended up being a really special experience. The food was quite good with many of the traditional extras. The highlight, however was the incredible service from Salim.

We had a great time at this restaurant: Great food, good service and value for money. Few tourists at the time and therefore a very calm dinner. "Everybody" goes to Dar El Geld - this restaurant gives you a more intim experience.

It was an excellent dinner arranged it for our Wedding Anniversary, the service was warm and excellent, the authentic Tunisian decor and architecture was everywhere, good old medina smell, and there was a "Kanun" musician with his folkloric outfit. We had an excellent dinner, Desert was on the house, and it was really delicious. Sure I will coming again.

Once you get over the strangeness of having to knock on restaurant doors to be let in, this was a very enjoyable experience. The waiter and Maitre De were very friendly and seated us despite not having a reservation. The setting is fantastic - beautiful and ornate traditional decor. You really don't expect it when viewed from the outside (the... More

Disappointed! Nice atmosphere but the service was poor. The food was not amazing for what you paid. For these high prices you would expect something better. I have eaten in restaurants all over Tunisia and I was not impressed by the service, food or price. Lovely location and decoration though.

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!
