Good value and tasty too ...

Menu was varied with a wide range of options with an excellent choice of fresh sea food. Staff were attentive and we had a really nice time.

There was a time when Restaurant Fatroucha meant good food on Jerba island, underscored by one of my previous Trip Advisor reviews from years ago. Unfortunately, time has not worn well for Fatroucha, from salads to our main courses, the food was without taste. With the hefty prices for a main course frequently ranging from 24 to 36 Tunisian dinars...a... More

We are twice here during our stay. Food is excellent and the menu is very varied. Staff are polite and very welcoming. Have no complaints at all and if on the island again, will be visiting!

We were recommended here by our hotel staff and were pleased with the outcome. Waiters speak English, alcohol is served, the menus have correct English translations, apart from the liver which is not precisely stated, so just look for the word foie in the French listing.

Not much to say here. The food was decent but nothing outstanding, the service was without a smile (something that makes a big difference) and the bill was a little steep. (72 tnd for 2) better restaurants to try in the area.

I will recommend this restaurant also if you visit the Island. The staff are really nice and the owner is really taking care of his guests. The Food is excellent specially the fish and the seafood. There is a list of local and western wines and the ambiance is really nice for couples.

One of my favorite restaurants on Jerba, near the Midoun turn off from the Zone Touristique. The chef provides dishes that are well cooked, nice portions. Wine and beer are available. Nice setting.

The mezze were great but it was a total rip off. The couscous was bad and the staff unfriendly.
