Close to Medina, great Tunisian restaurant: traditional dishes presented very well. To see the central hall overlooked by small balconies. All rooms have walls with antique tiles. Service to improve.

Visiting Dar ElJeld is a perfect destination for authentic Tunisian food served in an old pasha residence to give you the experience of the old city. I would advise to go with the mixed appetizers to taste it all, followed with a main of your choice. They offer coscosi as well as many seafood places. Ideal for a business dinner... More

Atmospheric interior courtyard, candles and tablecloth, lots of waiters, all that is needed for intimate dining. Local cuisine served Western style. Quality cooking, long wine list, prices locally high but not bad for a European tourist.

Restaurant best recommended for dinner because of solo musician inside and easier access to the medina at night. The food and the service are excellent,may be a little expensive but it's worth it.
