Both the food and service was amazing. When I asked for steak blue I got blue and it was awesome. Really well priced and the staff didn't make me feel uncomfortable at all and weren't pushy either. Happily recommend it to anyone that is in the area.

Loved their escargots and the mains were delicious as well. Not quite a Michelin star restaurant but the best we found in Sousse.

Escargot was recommended to me as the top restaurant to eat at during my visit to Sousse. After all the praise that I have heard and read about it, I expected something very special an I was disappointed. The salad of hot goat cheese was not what I expected as it was not goat cheese in addition to the fact... More

I had this restaurant marked down as a possible choice during our holiday and when we had a note from our rep with an advert for it on the back we decided to give it a go as it also had a child's menu. We got a taxi there for just 7 dina which was great and the driver arranged... More

I really liked the theatrical appearance of the interior. bijou, retro and comfortable. My partner wasn't convinced ( he prefers a slicker aethetic). The starters were okay, bit bland. The seafood paella ( which needs to be ordered 24 hours in advance) was lovely. Simple sauce, but the seafood was abundant, fresh and varietable, so I was happy the sauce... More

We loved this place. We went there (I think) 3 times during a 14 night holiday despite staying in an all-inclusive hotel. The costs (just under £30 GBP for two course meal with soft drinks for two people) were higher than some other places but very little compared to UK prices. Further, this seems to be one of the best... More

Having visited Tunisia dozens of times over 23 years we have dined in many restaurants in many towns and without doubt L'Escargot is our favourite. We are welcomed as repeat guests. Generally we eat European style dishes with Tunisian wine. Unfortunately smoking is permitted in almost every Tunisian restaurant and so we generally prefer a table on the terrace.
