I didn't liked this Restaurant. It was the worst Restaurant i have ever seen. I don't recommend it. The Chef is very arrogant and the food not nice.

Excellent food quality, good staff. And excellent decor with this Bey house. Still dishes are little bit expensive around 100 TND average. But it desserves. Recommended.

this place deep in the medina got high recommendations. The house quite ornate and nice to look at but the food was very poor and the service was not great or overly friendlly.

I can't really relate to some of the disappointed comments. We went there and after being amazed about the interior we had very good dinner and service, particularly Mohamed, our companion to the restaurant, is a real character! I can just recommend it.
