Located in the middle of nowhere in La Soukra, El Firma is a very pleasant spacious restaurant with a terrace, a bar area and a restaurant. It is a very nice setting and the service is attentive although we had to wait an awfully long time for the food to arrive. And when it did, it was disappointing. The raviolis,... More

Pretty good experience for a Bachetorette Party.... we were a party of 10 ,,, Nice place,,, pretty cozy atmosphere... Nice selection of Tunisian wine,, Waiters were helpful...they gave us some recommendations,, for food,,, Most of the desserts werent availabe but i guess it's because we ordered it pretty late too... Good experience overall..

Borzgen is a traditional couscous of the Le Kef region and prepared only in late spring. El Firma did a set menu Borzgen lunch in late May, served in a specially decorated room with hostesses wearing traditional costume. Unfortunately the ambiance was ruined by deafening background music (anyone who has ever been to a Tunisian wedding or engagement party will... More

This popular restaurant in a neighborhood rivaling some of the coastal areas for poshness is worth searching out. I find the less than thrilled reviews on Tripadvisor inexplicable. If smoke bothers you, get a reservation before 8 p.m. when the crowds start to show up. The farmhouse set in a garden is lovely as were the paintings and modernistic gas... More

It had been several years since eating at El Firma and last night's return underscored my memory of it being a nice atmosphere with relatively creative dishes. Not outstanding, but more creative than Tunisian restaurants normally attempt to be with cuisine. In another country, it would not be a standout, but being in Tunis, it was worth the visit, albeit,... More

No surprise that this should be a popular place. The food was very good. Finding good meat in Tunisia can be a problem but this place can manage it. In my group we had both good lamb and good veal. The desserts were very good too. Menu looks extensive though they can't offer all dishes all the time eg the... More

The restaurant is located in a wonderful garden area. The landscaping is fantastic, however, the arrival experience was very poor since no one was present at the entrance to greet or welcome the guests and offer assistance. Once seated, it took the waiter more than 10 minutes and come and hand over the menus (in a very bad shape) The... More
