The setting and location has to be the main attraction for this restaurant because the food isn't.
Kelibia has a magnificent coast line which displays the sea in two tiers. One bright blue and the other dark blue.It alone is worth a visit.
The restaurant itself sits on the coast, offering a uniquue dining experience, where the sea swells up to your heels, if you wish. A unique offering of been able to swin before, during or after your meal has to appeal to the young and old alike, as the launch pad into the open blue, sits at the heart of the restaurant.
However, after all that, it goes down hill.
The toliets are in poor shape and are in need of a good cleaning and some repair.
The food on offer was priced higher than the normal for Tunisia,but not for Europe. My own dining experience was poor. The food order was mixed up. Service was tardy.Food arrvied late but without the full compliment. The order had to be repeated again. When the food did arrive it was partly cold. Not acceptable.
The steak ordered by me was not a good cut, and the fish ordered by my companion was not cleaned properly. The scales were still to be found on part of the fish. Therfore I would say for an idealic location its worth going to, but not for the food.

This restaurant has the most beautiful sight of all the restaurant in tunisia.

As a restaurant, they propose a riche menu, a great service and tasty food.

For the price, it's a little bit expensive... But for all the points listed above, it worth the visit.

Nice restaurant with direct access to the sea where one can go for a refreshing swim while waiting for the food. The service is nice and the food is good (but not great). The only thing we didn't appreciate was that we were "forced" to order a meal each, costing at least 50DT. Some of us were not hungry at all but these were the restaurant rules (take it or leave it). This was the only restaurant we tried in Kelibia so I cannot really compare t to others, but it is still recommended for the location and food.

The El Mansourah restaurant sits on low cliffs between two white sand beaches, and the view on the sea end Kebilia's castle in the distance are great. The food however is not that great! I chose a set menu at 45 Dinars (approx 25 euros) and I had a choice between a starter of Mussels or Seafood salad, a main of grilled fish (seabass or swordfis) and a dessert (fruit or ice cream). Mussels were excellent but standard, grilled seafish was dry and plain, and the fruit salad was a whole apple with 4 strawberries and 4 dates around it... with wine and drinks we ended the meal with a bill of 35 euros that is a bit steep considering the quality of the food and the fact that we are in Tunisia! Probably a good choice during the summer to benefit of the view and outdoor eating... but that's it!
