Always a pleasure to have diner there when I'm in Tunis. The atmosphere on the outside is perfect on a warm evening especially when there is live music. I always choose seafood pasta or octopus carpaccio together with Tunisian white wine.

It's a nice place with 2 atmospheres, one in a covered terrasse and first floor with regular restaurant tables, the other aside the bar with hight tables and couches. Both are pleasant and sophisticated. I got a preference for the bar side as it's more chill and where could just drink and/or have a nice meal. Food is good but... More

Always the same issue with le bon vieux. Very rude host they are trying to sell themselves as a fine dinning place and they are far from it specially with the way they treat their customers.. I wish If they can give a proper training to their staff about how to receive customers..

Lovely seafood to start and great fillet steak cooked just as i like it. Very nice airy and open restaurant with plenty of room between tables. Good service. Well worth a visit

Excellent food and great choice from a seasonal menu. Langoustine linguine were amazing and I was really pleased with the fish starters as well (swordfish carpaccio). The place per se is not great, and I did not seem to find a non-smoking area, which was a bit unpleasant, but food was definetly worth it

Really nice salad, rather flavourless pasta. Relaxed and convivial atmosphere. Seems to be of the few places in Tunisia that serves wine by the glass but apparently that means you only want ONE glass because I am in the restaurant right now and my empty glass has been sitting on the table for at least a half and hour with...

Had a very nice dinner here with a friend. A nice bottle of Tunisian red wine, surprisingly good. I went for the lobster with pasta, which was a huge portion. The lobster was delicious and the pasta as well, though it was a bit too much. Same with my friend, she had the grilled beef and could only eat half... More

We have been to this restaurant several times now, in small and large groups, and it has not disappointed, actually I would regard it as one of my favourites in Tunis. The courtyard is beautiful on a warm evening as they open up the roof covers, and when it is a bit cooler they have the roof closed, however you... More
