This a very good restaurant in Tunis, specially for business dinners. The menu is diversified with very good entrees, I had a seafood vol au vent and a steak. Service is attentive.

Then this place is for you (and bring your grandma or any leftover US tourist that does not know better).

Not to say that the food is not of quality. It is. Nor that the service is no good. It is. Nor that it is not chic. It is...so what is wrong?

It is simply "passe". Very old style. A bit pretentious (ok, more than a bit...the manager assumes you are a total ignorant about food if you are a local or worst, a north american). No imagination in the plates, just classics, probably the same since the owner moved from France (I assume, I did not ask).

And very pricy. But no WOW factor. And really, really, the place was close to empty on a thursday evening...good if you need to sleep (luckily for me, I was with highly interesting people so that was good, they got my full attention:).

So go there for an official business dinner that you want to keep very formal, otherwise, go to La Closerie for example, of even the morocco restaurant at the Movenpick...if you want to get a bit out of overbeaten french onion soup!

Very good food in a quiet but nice environment. The food is really good and service is by Tunisian standards quite pleasant. I've only been there for lunch, but intend to go back for dinner with my wife!

I visited this restaurant with a colleague for a business lunch. The location is a little bit difficult to get to; in a side street and not very far from Institut Pasteur and le Belvedere in Tunis. The entrance is nice and the place is very clean and business-like. The food is excellent with a mixture of Tunisian French cuisine. The wine is good and service is top-notch. The restaurant is ideal for a business lunch since it is quiet and private. Price is on the high side for a Tunisian restaurant.

I recommend this restaurant for a quiet business lunch in a location not far from downtown Tunis.

It was a farewell lunch, organized to one of our colleague, who were leaving.
The restaurant is quite and relaxed for lunch time, the staff is helpful and friendly, good variety of menu & good taste.
It would be better to reserve in advance, as the restaurant always fully booked.
I recommend this restaurant, i'm going plan for another visit soon.
