Small place, difficult to find if you're unfamiliar with Hydra. Counter around the grill and a separate eating area as well. No alcohol.

This place is unlike any other in Algiers: fun and funky set-up with the counter, the chalk menu, the artwork. Likewise the food is terrific in a way a lot of food in other restaurants can't match: everything's fresh-made in-house, including the pasta. (That does sometimes mean things on the menu aren't available because the ingredients weren't in the market... More

Very good and fresh food! They buy all ingredients day of and their whole menu is on a chalkboard! All food was very fresh and tasty. Everyone raves about their cheeseburgers. Definitely good food. Will be back again! Service gets very busy. Best to go before the crowd arrives later in the night!

Very cozy restaurant. Not more than 10 tables but you can also sit at the counter overlooking the open kitchen. Everything is cooked fresh and made to order. Located in a residential district, it may not be very easy to find. But if you happen to be in Hydra, it's a great place if you want a quick and tasty... More

Once and foremost: if you go to this restaurant, do an early dinner!!!!! I mean it! They open at 7pm and that's the time to go. We were in this place like 6 times since it's very close to our apartment and the verdict is this: if you come early, you will be in the place almost by yourself. But... More

A delightful new bistro-style restaurant in Algiers with an interesting menu, attentive and friendly staff, very pleasant, modern atmosphere, and excellent food. Though the burgers were a little disappointing having been overcooked, they were still better than others around town; and every other dish our group sampled was excellent. I had salmon, which was cooked absolutely perfectly: medium rare -... More
