Had a lovely seafood dinner here, I think it was the sea bream if I remember correctly. Service was good and prices likewise. Would go again.

There are restaurants in Marsa serving better food, the decoration is from the 70ies but: - Food is honest (good filets) - Prices are modest - Service is very friendly and super fast (the fasted I ever saw in Tunisia) - They serve alcohol - Not crowded, calm. Ideal for a good, relaxed lunch Really like the place

I had dinner 2 nights ago with friends at this gem of a restaurant by the sea. The entree dips included Tunisian 'salade mashwi' (grilled veggies), and a good spicy Harrisa. We had steak which was wonderful- done as requested, tender (& mine with a good pepper sauce). I recommend the serious dark rich chocolate mousse for dessert. The staff... More

I love this place. I have been coming off and on over the last 9 years since I have been working in the Middle East. The wait staff is beyond friendly, the food is tasty, the wine list is simple, and it feels like your walking back in time. Its right on the corniche in the midst of the hustle... More

This is a good place for a quiet meal. They have a reasonable wine choice and the food is good but not great. good and friendly service.

I enjoy this restaurant specially for the service and for the meat. Their filets and entrecote are melting in your mouth. But I specially adore their "ossobuchi" in a rich tomato sauce when available. Last night it was a feast. As starter I had "Chevrette à l'ail" also very good. Will go back.

I stumbled across Dar Tej on one of my first trips to Tunis several years ago and have come back at least once on almost every trip since. The downstairs reminds me of a cafe in Paris, but that's the smoking area and it can be very smoky. I usually eat upstairs, which can be quite empty especially during the... More

With a nice location on the Marsa Plage, you'd expect this place to be awesome. Well, it's not. It's not bad though, either. They have decent tasting Tunisian dishes at fairly high prices. The service is average - they speak English if you don't know Arabic or French, and they are nice, but it's nothing to write home about. Once... More

My wife and I were so impressed with this place that we went back two nights later. I had the Ojja Merguez the 1st time and she had the filet. We washed it down with a bottle of Magon. The service was great and the food was even better. The bill came to about 75 dinar which is a steal... More
