We actually got recommended this restaurant by our taxi driver and we are so glad he did! We ate here twice on a week long stay in Hammammet.
The gardens are beautiful, but it does get very busy later on, so if there are a few of you, I'd probably book in advance. There were only two of us so we always managed.
The food was lovely and the waiters were really helpful in translating any words we weren't sure of, we speak a little french but are not familiar with all the types of fish in french. We were recommended lovely wine and both times the fish dishes we had were fantastic. The waiters were really friendly and it was a lovely mix of tourists and locals. I always think it's a good sign when locals eat there and the waiters definitely recognised returning customers.
This restaurant is well worth hunting out and compared to London prices is very reasonable. I'd say £50 for a two course meal for two with wine is a great deal!

Nice outdoor terrace.
We went on a August friday night and it was full, so it's adavisable to make a booking in advance.
Customers are both local people and tourists.
Very good fresh fish: you can choose it from the fridge, they put on a weight and they tell you the price instantly. Never seen it before and it's a very good practice.
Very good Cous-cous.
Good service.

We visited this restaurant on a recommendation from one of the rare polite locals and it was terrible unfortunately. The welcome and service was horrible, making you feel completely unwelcome and uncomfortable - the locals obviously don't want tourist visiting here and they make that known. The food was also very average - I had one of the specials which consisted of tasteless prawns and squid with what seemed to be a tin of tomatoes, my partner had the steak which was served with some very sad looking salad and chips. Don't even bother going here honestly.

We arrived at 7pm and found ourselves the only ones in the restaurant. Others did join but even by 9pm the customers were sparse which meant the atmosphere was lacking a little, which is a shame as the garden setting is lovely.

The food was lovely, we all had fish in one way or another, some dishes with pasta, some as a whole fish. All well cooked and tasty.

The menu was only available in French and the waiter although tried to help us with some of the translation there were items we did not know what they were and we were not feeling adventurous, this limited our selection somewhat but nonetheless we enjoyed it.
