Pretending to be French style with lack of... More

In Algeria you do not get so many options when it comes to so many things, fine dining is one of them. Located at a top of the hill overlooking the whole capital, Al Boustan has an amazing view, out door/indoor seating with very elegant set up. The decoration is nice but not impressive, the service has a lot to... More

El Boustene is close to the independence monument at one of the highest points of Algiers center. One of the best sea and bay views of Algiers by night. We took the speciality of the restaurant: fish cooked in a salt crust. very tasty!

Perfect place to see the sunset - best view in Algiers! I have visited the restaurant a couple of times and the service was always excellent. They have a good selection of wine and offer fresh seafood. A must place to visit while in Algiers!

Restaurant is very conveniently located nearby the monument, offering wonderful view of Algiers. Food was simply fantastic as so was the service. It might have been a bit pricey for Algeria, but not so much for European / American standards - offering good value for money.

I came here a few years ago. So it was high on my list on my return to Algiers. Last time we sat inside as it was cold, but it was warm enough to be outside this time. So we could enjoy the amazing view over the bay. As before, the food was excellent. I had grilled monk fish which... More
