Restaurant L'Orient is very highly rated by the locals and appreciated by travelers so I had high expectations about it, but I was a bit disappointed. The food is not bad, the place is very full and lively and probably one of the best choices...More

I went several times to this place and i was never disappointed. The food is good, quite large variety, and very reasonable prices. It'a a shame that so much people smoke while you're eating...

A pleasant restaurant with good traditional food, and nice surroundings. Smoke-free too, as opposed to most other places we visited. Nice wine-list, though only very few were actually available. The quality was good, though.

We ate here early evening when it was very quiet - all the Tunisian classics on the menu, fine in all regards but lacking any wow factor. Good wine - Gris de Tunisie and pleasant staff. Reasonably priced, so not a bad choice by any...More

There are a lot of fast food "restaurants" next to Tunis' main axe... But this restaurant deserves to be mentioned! I love the interior, the decor... And above all the food and drinks! For 25 dinar I had great food, two nice fish and some...More
