Nicely staff with moderate food. Went at night for an early evening meal so can not comment on beaches etc. Very busy little town vibrant and lots of things to do. A must visit of in the area

Very nice upper class restaurant with flair. Calm and nice decorated, possibility to sit outside in covered green area or inside with aircon. Would recommend the Mesa, which will come with a lot of small plates time after time and is enough to be eaten as a maincourse. Very good choice of wine.

An ambience without comparison and a must to both holidaymakers and locals alike , L'escargot needs to be seen to be believed , and to be sampled to be believed. the food , service and surroundings are 1st class throughout.

We visited last week while on holiday in Sousse. After reading excellent reviews both here and in the Lonely Planet guide, we decided to visit and we were not disappointed! We were made to feel very welcome by the warm and friendly staff. The menu is in several languages, so if your French is not the best, not to worry!... More

I was recommended to Escargot by my concierge at the hotel where I was staying. Having visited Sousse in the past, and being quite disappointed, I was more than jaded at the prospect of this visit. However, I could not have been more incorrect, as although the staff were quite busy with a large party of diners already in situ,... More

The restaurant offers fresh food, with excellent meals (tasty), and a good quality of service. Waitors are in suffisant number and answer quickly to your requests.

Went here on our anniversary as it was reccomended and because of the name ordered L escagot gratan which turned out to be sea snails swiming in lots of garlic oil, a bit of a dissapointment. Dessert was a cremebroulie and turned out to be a clump of scrambled eggs with caramel sauce. Not at all immpressed with this place.

We could not find this little jewel as maps and trip advisor put is in the wrong street. It is at the top end nr the round about. Will try again and every one we have met have said positive things about this rest
