“Good food and service”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

After spending 5 months in Tunisia this is one of the very few places where the whole dining experience really was nice. It is not a fancy place but the service and food is very good for Tunisian standards. The restaurant is cozy and the atmosphere friendly and welcoming. It is very popular among locals but if you are not from a Mediterranean country yourself, you will probably eat earlier than them, and therefore can normally get a table without a reservation and even finish eating before the local eating times. The cous cous is better than in Tunis, also had the very nice barbecued meet skewer (brochette) and prawns. Grand Patron was the best of the red wines.
Clean and safe to eat, toilets are also clean enough to use unlike in most places in Tunis.
Since it is not trying to be fancy or specifically cater for tourists it is not too overpriced if certainly also not the cheapest.
If you want to have the normal tourist food and experience, please do not go to this lovely local place and spoil the atmosphere. I have eaten here 3 times, every time I was in Hammamet, and the quality has been consistent always. Therefore I will again go there next time = )

“Away from most tourists”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

A little gem slightly away from the centre, well frequented by locals. Good and healthy food from a well devised menu. Prices reasonable and well worth a visit.

“Nice Atmosphere !!!”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

this restaurant is a great place for family outing. the food is typical tunisian food. service is freindly and fast.

their selection of fish is good and fresh; you wont be disappointed. once again this is a medium quality restaurant so do not expect too much.

the retaurant has a large patio and can acoomodate large groups. very private as it is just outside the crowded streets of hammamet.

for 4 persons it was just under 100 TND ( 70$) . i recommend this place for family gathering or business meeting.

“Nice setting, average food but annoying stray cats.”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

The setting of chez achour is very nice. The food lacks sauce and taste. Be careful when ordering fish as the price presented is usually per 100g. Personally the two stray cats who were hovering around the tables put me off my food.
