The place is located in Algiers Center, we actually spent time on the internet looking for a good place to have a local food like Couscous and we ended up choosing Jenina Restaurant, The decor inside is cool but not well maintained, the table was broke and we even had difficulties enjoying our food because of that! The service is... More

The food and ambiance here is awesome. One of the coolest places I experience in Northern Africa. I had squids and grilled prawns. As a dessert some sort of rice pudding that was to die for. I would love to get the recipe.

This is an excellent restaurant tucked away in Algiers. Booking is almost essential. Food is of a very high quality and service is friendly. They also serve alcohol which is great! The only downsides are that it takes a long time to get a drink and they don't accept cards (most places don't in Algeria)

I enjoyed dinner here with several colleagues. I had the meshoui with couscous and a cold Algerian "Tango" beer. The service was good, and the atmosphere very authentic. An easy walk down the hill from the St. George Hotel

I had nice dinner with my colleagues from work here. I like very much the design- arabesque decorations, table settings look really nice. I have eaten lamb couscous and both meat and sauce were very tasty. So was the selection of sweets at the end. I think the lady who runs the place is a good spirit of the place... More

This restaurant serves alchohol which is not very common. The service is excellent, and the Food is great, but I did not find the presentation was so fantastic. The portions are not very big. It has a very good reputation and it is a safe Choice for a great evening in Alger

Went to this place for dinner. Great setting in an old palace, few steps away from Bardo Museum. Ordered lamb mechoui. Although the restaurant was half empty, it took some 45mins to get food. But it was worth waiting. The lamb was so tender and delicious. Prices here are a bit upmarket and I expected more choice on the menu... More

The food is great. I took a mechoui and really enjoyed it. But what really struck me positively is the attention and warm welcome by the lady managing the restaurant (not sure if she's the owner), and i noticed that she gave the same attention to each and every table that came. Very knowledgeable and knows what to recommend, you... More
