In Tunisia on business, my Deputy, who is Arab and a seasoned hand at all things Northern Africa encouraged me to try a meal at Le Pirate at the harbor. At first glance, I found what appeared to be a small villa set back off the street with a nondescript entrance. It later occurred to me that the garden is where all the activity would be on a nice summer day. But this being January, and in the middle of the afternoon, it didn't even look like it was open. Nonetheless, we plunged ahead. And I was not disappointed.
The "staff" (one person) welcomed us and waited on us but then hung back unobtrusively while we visited. The building is, indeed, a former villa with large picture windows across the front. It's a stone building with a fireplace. Homey and nothing you would want to emulate if you're into building villas. Just very plain but that said, the food is not.
We both had soup for a starter and seafood for an entree. I failed to take a menu with me so I cannot give an overview of the offerings. I just remember the menu as comprehensive in a number of categories and everything looked delicious. Our meals lived up to the description.
