Don't miss the view! But avoid coffee, cappucino and everything related to "home made drinks". Water and juices are ok, but overrated.

It's unfortunate that cafes overlooking the sea in this part of the city don't put the least effort in making the place decent to visit.. the cafe has very basic wooden seats crammed beside each other so you barely ever get a sense of privacy. Waiters are in a pathetic state with dirty attire and the drinks come almost wet... More

Great view, have been there a few times with visitors.. But just too expensive for what it is... Coffee and drinks are ok, but the food is not worth it

Popular all day, but especially for sunset; ideal for drinks; I love the local mint tea with pine tree seeds(the aux pignons).

The view is probably as good as you can get in Sidi Bou Said (still poor compared to other places in the Mediterranean, I think) but cafe is overpriced. A tea is 2.5€ or so - small, lukewarm, incredibly sweet by default and of murky colour, food at European prices and I doubt the quality. I ordered a mint tea... More

Great view and nice place to sit for a weary feed after hilly strolls in sidi bu said . commercial quality of food. I ordered orange juice which came with cake for some reason . I was charged 30DTS for two orange juice which turned out to be only 14DTS ...simply because the waiter overcharged me for the CAKE !!... More

I grabbed lunch here. Nothing to say about the view, it's fantastic. When it comes to food and service it is terrible. I had the Caesar salad and there was a lot of plant lices crawling around. I noticed this after I had a few bites and told the waiter. They still charged the full price.
