We couldn't manage to make a reservation even though a very kind and smart lady found a nice table for us. The location is really nice it worth the effort itself as outside was 41C°(and we walked from quite far away). The staff is super smooth and the service within European standards. The menu is not so crowded (exactly the way it should be) but you have in all you need to taste from Tunisian cuisine and at reasonable prices. If you are at Medina it's a must and bring a camera with you as you will spend at least half an hour to make a photo reportage for your FB account.

This was by far the best place we ate at in Tunis.The restaurant itself is called Dar El Jeld (House of Leather) and it was the main trading post/location for Leather and animal hide... It is a beautiful old building in the middle of the Old town... accessing it one has to walk a bit thru the old tiny walkways in the old town ... The food was fantastic, the Tagines, and the couscous ... the ambience was just perfect..... Liked everything about this charming restaurant.

Great traditional food. Also original. Great flavors. Discreet service. Prices not cheap but worth it. Wine selection is a good mix.

I went to Dar el Jeld several times and each time I enjoy my diner there. The food is authentic Fine Tunisian food.
Portions are big and already after the appetizers we were full and couldn't finish our mains. We however insisted on having a dessert to finish this beautiful diner. The Acida of Boufreoua ( hazelnuts) is to die for.
Only negative comment is the area, at night this area is empty and dark, I have to admit I was a little bit scared going down bab el bnet street to get into the car. Another point, Dar el Jeld is a classy place so you want to dress up a little bit however streets that night were muddy because of the rain so don't wear your designer shoes which is anyway not advisable in general in Tunisia since they get damaged very quickly due to the dust and dirt in the streets
