This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Algiers. A wide variety of traditional Marroquin dishes together with some nice Algerian specialties and a nicely decorated room makes it a nice restaurant to visit for dinner for business or pleasure. On the lower level, there is a more trendy restaurant and live music, more focused on a younger classy... More

We had a business lunch at Mesk Ellil. On the one hand, the service was really terrific: they took our reservation, and when one party had trouble finding the place, the maitre'd was kind enough to (repeatedly) give over-the-phone navigation to get them on the right track. The waiters were very attentive throughout. However, the overall ambiance was lacking-- some... More

This place is highly over rated and definitely a must avoid location if you happen to be in town. On one occasion, i went there with a group of friends. The place was over crowded, and the tables were seriously uncomfortable. Everything is squeezed forcibly to a point that the waiter couldn't reach all the areas of the floor. I... More

The food is quite good and tasty. The ambiance its good. The prices are ok. They serve wine if necessary...but very light local wine. The service needs improvement; slow, not attentive and some how needs to be more polite. Difficult to park but a goos restaurant in Algiers. You should try.

was taken here by a leading industrialist, so did not pay, so excuse if the costings are off. But it is good. Civilised food, slightly OTT francophone waiters (eg Show me the wine list; Answer: we shall offer you wines) but reliable food with a touch of the pretentious nouvelle cuisine about the presentation. Whatever, I liked it. Modern style... More

This is a fairly new entry to the high end restaurant clique in Algiers. The food and the service are both good, and the owners have managed to get a decor and an ambiance that gives the impression that it has been here for years. By Algiers standards, this is one of the best restaurants in the city, but unfortunately,... More

On the two occasions of visiting this restaurant only the main course was any good. The starters were of poor quality as was the deserts. All in all, expensive for what you get
