Enter through the interesting iconic door and soon you will be in a lbeautiful internal courtyard space. Five of us shared various couscous dishes, including stuffed squid (calamari). The restaurant is in the Souk and has a great feel to it.

I only asked to look at the menu, and they weren't too pleased to offer it as I'd not made a booking in advance. Apparently the food is excellent, though on the expensive side.

You cannot say you visited Tunis if you don't try this gem in the Kasbah. Dar el Jeld, the "house of leather" is an ancient palace which offers you an amazing menu celebrating the best of Tunisian cusine. Impeccable presentation and amazing decor, this is a special restaurant, great for celebrations, a romantic dinner or for business lunches.

All the real restaurants where you can sit down and get served in Tunis are with closed doors from the street, so very hard to find.

30 December 2016. There were a lot of people although it was the night before new year's eve. Every thing was perfect, the atmosphere (décor, light, architecture), the service: discretion and effficiency; the meals: all perfectly cooked and tasty, traditional pastry and mint flavoured green tea...
