5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

We've been to L'escargot a number of times now and was there again 2 nights ago.
The food and staff are still the same ....AMAZING!

“Walk into a different world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

A cozy, romantic, nicely decorated little seafood restaurant with excellent food and service.

If you do not know it, you can just walk pass it. It is hidden behind many trees. As you enter through the little gate hidden among the greens to the small patio, restaurant atmosphere welcomes warmly. It is small but effectively decorated. I went for dinner by myself on a business trip but it still was very romantic.
I had shrimps with butter and sea bass. It was delicious. Had the suggested half bottle white wine. It was a French, obviously and turned out just fine. I would definitely wanna go there again.

“Best food/restaurant in Sousse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

Our bill came to about 80TD which is about 27GBP, We had a bottle of wine, entrees each and a main each (we are a couple) and shared a desert. This is expensive in Tunisia but obviously for tourists that is extremely cheap, it is worth it!

We went on our last night in Sousse and were really hoping for some fantastic food as the restaurants we had been to were so so, yet this restaurant is definitely the best in Sousse and lived up to fellow reviews. It was a little difficult to find as it is tucked behind plants which cover the front of the shop it is one street back from the main beach. The cab driver we had knew the restaurant so that may be your best option and to not walk.

Food was absolutely divine, fresh ingrediants used served to a very high standard.

Service was fantastic we booked the table during the day and came back to the table being ready and waiting for us.

Lovely olives and garlic were on the table as we arrived.
