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

The best restaurant we have eaten in, fantastic surroundings, you will need to book at the weekends. Like going back in history in France. Lots of free appetizers before main meal, and all reasonably priced.

This little restaurant is tucked behind a wall of flowers. But venture inside to discover a cosy very French couple of rooms that serve well cooked food from an extensive menu. A real gem and a great little find. Go early to avoid disappointment
