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.

We arrived late for dinner (9:30 pm) and we were alone the entire evening. Very good service. There was someone playing an "Aoud" (luth?) and singing. The decoration is beautiful, the food is very traditional, very typical. We took a tour around the house and...More

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.

The food was not exceptional - quite normal Tunisian. The interior is nice but too much of nick-nack. Especially the two paintings of Ottomans. Annoying musician that kept singing for two hours without breaks (for our ears).

We did not hâve a good dinner at essaraya restaurant. We had dinner during ramadan and the food was awful. The location is excellent, the décoration of the restaurant as well, but the food is réally awful and quite expensive.

Je suis allée en Tunisie en 2011. J'ai séjourné à Dkhilet Toujane , j'y suis allée avec mon beau-père Tunisien et ma mère et je suis montée au village de Toujane, j'ai trouvé ce village particulièrement accueillant et magnifique, les gens sont très sympathique et chaleureux. J'y suis retournée plusieurs fois. J'ai été au Relais Auberge Ben Ahmed Kilani où les propriétaires sont très gentils, j'ai meme eu le plaisir d'essayer le tissage de tapis. J'ai vraiment aimé mon séjour et j'y retournerai cet été avec plaisir :)
