This is hands down the best restaurant in Djerba, and one of my favourite meals during my ten day trip to Tunisia. The restaurant is based on the small plates concept, so you can order a lot of dishes to try the local foods. We...More

Exterior dining room was a bit hot and ceiling fans didn’t help much, waiter was too nice and polite and dishes were waaay too good: tbikha soup was excellent, Briki was okay, couscous was good and lamb skewers was great. I recommend this place

One of the last places (and one of the oldest) to serve typical local cuisine. They serve in small portions as shares and everything is home made cooking.

Fantastic local food and service. The "tajine d'agneau" was exquisite. And the local Harissa is to-die for.

Looks like an old farm house inside. Good music. Lovely starters (harrissa; potato and aubergine; sweet onion and tomato). Plenty of choice of Tunisian dishes. Main portions not too big, which is good because a plate of fruit to finish is huge. Deliciously dark and...More
