Essedine has been serving classic French food with in one of the very best restaurants in Sousse for many years since he took over Escargot. This is one of my must eats when I am in Sousse. This is French style fine dining with an old school touch. But it is still not expensive. Considering European prices it is very,... More

Lovely restaurant with a variety of French (and some Italian!) dishes and lots of character. We had escargot and French onion soup both times which were very tasty. For mains we had the filet steak with pepper sauce, and the medallions au gratin. Both cooked to perfection. Prices are also good value, 90 DT for starters, mains and drinks (=45... More

Nicely staff with moderate food. Went at night for an early evening meal so can not comment on beaches etc. Very busy little town vibrant and lots of things to do. A must visit of in the area

Very nice upper class restaurant with flair. Calm and nice decorated, possibility to sit outside in covered green area or inside with aircon. Would recommend the Mesa, which will come with a lot of small plates time after time and is enough to be eaten as a maincourse. Very good choice of wine.

The 'at the table' service is excellent without being intrusive. The food quality is above excellent , with generous ,... More

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.
