Great location, in refurbished Ottoman building. Typical Algerian cooking well described by skilled waiters. Absolutely to taste "mechoui" and "tajin" (lamb based), with dessert. Surely I'll back.

I was entertained by my colleagues at Jenina. Very good menu with wide choices of local cuisine. I had a delicious couscous with chicken - tender and tasty. Service was excellent. Decor was great and gave a good feeling of what the architecture was like. Well recommended.

The place is located in Algiers Center, we actually spent time on the internet looking for a good place to have a local food like Couscous and we ended up choosing Jenina Restaurant, The decor inside is cool but not well maintained, the table was broke and we even had difficulties enjoying our food because of that! The service is... More

The food and ambiance here is awesome. One of the coolest places I experience in Northern Africa. I had squids and grilled prawns. As a dessert some sort of rice pudding that was to die for. I would love to get the recipe.

This is an excellent restaurant tucked away in Algiers. Booking is almost essential. Food is of a very high quality and service is friendly. They also serve alcohol which is great! The only downsides are that it takes a long time to get a drink and they don't accept cards (most places don't in Algeria)

I enjoyed dinner here with several colleagues. I had the meshoui with couscous and a cold Algerian "Tango" beer. The service was good, and the atmosphere very authentic. An easy walk down the hill from the St. George Hotel

I had nice dinner with my colleagues from work here. I like very much the design- arabesque decorations, table settings look really nice. I have eaten lamb couscous and both meat and sauce were very tasty. So was the selection of sweets at the end. I think the lady who runs the place is a good spirit of the place... More
