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.

Settled amongst an area surrounded by restaurants it has very good food, again well priced compared to Europe prices but dear for Tunisia. Had better food in other restaurants

A cozy, romantic, nicely decorated little seafood restaurant with excellent food and service. If you do not know it, you can just walk pass it. It is hidden behind many trees. As you enter through the little gate hidden among the greens to the small patio, restaurant atmosphere welcomes warmly. It is small but effectively decorated. I went for dinner... More
