“Good coffee and ice cream”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

Good place for a decent cup of coffee with a wide range of ice cream flavours. The fruit sorbets are particularly tasty and very refreshing after a long day in the sun. We didn't try any of the hot dishes but the menu looked pretty good. Worth a visit if you are staying n Sousse.

“Perfect :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

We came here everyday during our week stay in Sousse. The coffee is the best coffee I've ever had abroad! The panini's were the biggest panini's I've ever seen and the pasta was really tasty! The ice cream was really nice and the staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for you!

“Horrible! Horrible!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

I took a big group of people here for lunch and ice cream. It looks very nice from the outside. It was not very busy and yet we waited 25 minutes for a waiter to attend to our big group. They never came. When I finally asked if we would be waited on, we were told to be quiet and wait. Hmmm. There was also sewage coming out of the bathroom into the restaurant, so waiting inside did not smell to good. We should have enjoyed this horrible experience outside. We never did get waited on and finally loaded up the group and went to another restaurant. I can not recommend this place to anyone. I live in Sousse and will make sure to encourage all my friends and clients to avoid this place.

“Awesome Gelato at great price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

We went there a few times during our stay in Sousse for a week as the restaurant is located in the supermarket as part of the resort we stayed, Hotel Tej marhaba. The Gelato they serve is a really good sized portion for the price and they also serve delicious food. They are a bit pricey for the local people although due to currency conversion rates you don't feel it. I have never seen such a wide range of Gelato, although you don't get all of them available at a time. On our first day we ordered Pizza but only been told after enquiring that that specific flavour ran out and we had to order again. Apart from this, we did have a very good experience and will be going back.

“The pistachio Gelato is awesome!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Popped into here on the way back from dinner for a gelato and were not let down. It was only 3.5 dinar for two scoops and they were pretty generous scoops. I had the pistachio and the lime gelato and my girlfriend had a scoop of cheesecake and a scoop of vanilla.

All four flavours were great and for about £1.50 (GBP) was great. Probably would have ended up going every day if we hadn't have only found it on our last day.
