Judt an average TN restaurant with the standard menu offering fish, couscous and some beef dishes. Ambient rather average and service as well. You wont miss anything if you do not manage tto drop in.

When I liked to invite some customers to a restaurant to try fresh and very well prepared fish dishes in Sfax, I have chosen La Sirene. However, the restaurant service was horrible.
In an arrogant way, the restaurant is imposing to the customers to order minimum a starter and a main dish together, regardless if you are able to eat them or not. The restaurant people are able to refuse your order and ask you to leave if you don't order as much quantity of food as the minimum they request.
Such kind of arrogance has lead my customer to refuse having food there and we decided to leave elsewhere.
I'll never go to this restaurant. Fortunately, we can find good fish dishes elsewhere with far better service quality.

C'est Parmi Les Meilleurs Si Ce N'est Pas Le Meilleur A Sfax 2em Ville Tunisienne
A very kind local lady led us to this restaurant, saying it was one of the very best in Sfax. I was very surprised therefore to find very shoddy service, and very average food. Waiter was barely polite, generally looked like he'd rather be anywhere else and took a tip despite his poor effort.
We had some lovely meals in Tunisia but unfortunately this wasn't one of them!

Very nice decor, waiters in bowties, very good service. Very nice mixed starters of octopus in tomato sauce, fried and grilled calamari, breaded and fried fish roe, grilled and fried prawns. Chopped and grilled seabass, rubbed in spices. Whilst I would have loved to try some Tunisian wine I favoured a lime, lemon and mint juice which was fantastic. This very good meal was finished off with a sweet mint tea.

Food was tasty and prices were cheap. My only concern was about a cleaness of the tables and annoying flies around my food.. Also there was very friendly guy (he was making shaurmas and accepting orders), who was the only English-speaking person there...

It is a hidden restaurant without any luxury. The place seems a bit like a garage, with long shared tables. They have very fresh fish. Every day new things. Very well prepared. Delicious, even if a bit overpriced. Around 30 dinars each.

In centro a sfax, locale giovane con ottimo servizio, tutto informale. Ottima sia la carne che il pesce. Io ho preso un loup de mer alla griglia che ho trovato molto buono. Tutto servito con una entree con Harissa e una ottima frutta offerta. Spesa 100 dinari in 4. Lo consiglio

C'est vraiment LE lieu de rendez-vous pour les sfaxiens ! Pas mal de choix, des gâteaux européens, du salé. Pas cher.

Authentic taste. Nice quality and generous quantity. Small area but clean and cozy. Recommanded for everyone enjoying seafood for lunch.
