This was the third time I have eaten here and taxi drivers named it when I asked about good restaurants around the Movenpick Hotel where I was staying. Though the bill came out at DT 70 per head inc wine, £30 would be a lot of money to the average Tunisian. So on Saturday 16 June I would judge most other customers were European, Last year, when tourist numbers were down, majority of customers were wealthy locals.
I had golden red mullet (a sort of whitebait), followed by lightly seared tuna. Both were delicious though the tuna could have arrived rather hotter. The Magon Vieux wine was excellent. Service was attentive. A very enjoyable evening. It is short walk back across the sandy beach to the movenpick, though rather longer by road with a climb up and down a hill as well

A trendy place, full of locals, where it is possible to test very well cooked fresh fish, have a glass of good wine. I was there for dinner and I was not able to appreciate the nice view you could have from the outdoor terrace.

There was nothing to complain about. Excellent food and very good service.

The prices are a bit more expensive compaired to other restaurants in Tunisia. But for us Europeans it is still cheap.

It was my first visit to "le Golfe" a well known top class restaurant near the corniche de la Marsa. The restaurant has a terrace open in summer and a modern decor, cared in every detail. The four of us including two important guests have enjoyed a menu wide enough including a fusion of sea/tunisian/creative dishes. Service was excellent despite the restaurant being full (it is full every single evening and often for lunch too..) attentive enough and able to explain dishes in detail and note special wishes.
Atmosphere is modern and suitable for business and for friends, while chic enough although not intimate for romance.
The bill was absolutely fair (138 Euro including 2 bottles of good Tunisian white wine chilled).
A top place in the area. Just be sure you book well in advance, even a week earlier in season, as you may have difficult to find a table.
