Take your camel to bed at this oasis town in southwestern Tunisia, home to a staggering 200,000 palm trees. Long prosperous due to its setting on the Sahara-crossing camel caravan routes, Tozeur is known for its quality Deglet Nour dates, its beige brick architecture, and its 14th-century medina (Ouled El Hwadef), where the fascinating Dar Chariet Museum houses many early artifacts, including jewelry and ceramics. Tozeur also served as a Star Wars movie series backdrop.

Welcome to Restaurant Dar Deda, in the oasis of Sahara, Tozeur, Tunisia! At our traditionally decorated location you can find typical Tunisian cuisine as well as dishes from the local and Berber kitchen. Bon Appetit!
I went to this restaurant last night for dinner with my husband and our local driver. Ojja Merguez(egg dish with sausage) was delicious. My husband camel stake was tender and tasted very good. I had Chakhchoukha (home made noodles with chicken and onions) and it was heavenly.
However, shame on them they did not have Tunisian olive oil for the harissa. How can a Tunisian restaurant not have local olive oil. They said it is becoming expensive. I think they can ration or portion it but not eliminate it from the table.
I recommend this place.

If you have never had camel, your trip to Tozeur should definitely include dinner at Le Petit Prince. Not only do they serve fresh grilled camel, but they are providing food that continues to draw visitors to this staple in this southwest Tunisian oasis town.
Le Petit Prince has been around for years. Best to take a taxi, as it is not on a main street and walking from the hotels can take time. In a city where good restaurants are not abundant, the kitchen at Le Petit Prince takes pride in the presentation of their dishes, as well as their taste. The waiters take much more pride and attention to service than what one normally comes to expect in Tunisia. Beer and wine are available.
Our dinner for two included appetizers of a “salad l’oasis” which included a wide variety of raw vegetables” and “Kefta Bedouine”, three patties of grilled pressed meet. Our main courses were a roasted chicken served with fresh, French Fries and vegetables, while I opted for the camel, which was not listed on the menu, but knowing the restaurant’s reputation, the waiter confirmed its availability. A nice size portion of grilled camel, with the taste of a nice beef steak, served with freshly cut French Fries and vegetables. This, along with two beers came to 64 Tunisian dinars. A good value and more food than we really needed.
Definitely put Le Petit Prince at the top of your dinner list when in Tozeur!

Had a nice lunch here , good location in the centre of town . Nice eating area. Friendly staff , French always useful in Tunisia. Good value for money. No alcohol. A Brik is a deep fried envelope of pastry filled with egg & other fillings, delicious.

You'll find this restaurant just down the street from the oasis and old town packed with natives and tourists alike. The menu is extensive, which safe European food like spaghetti to roasted camel and lamb that makes up the bulk of Tozeur cuisine. Vegetarians can find alternatives too, like couscous with vegetables. Servings are hefty -- dont over order because of the low prices. Dinner for 2 for $10! The owner's son speaks English and the menu is in French. Atmosphere is pleasantly noisy with berber designs on the walls. No alcohol.

As this place was on the top of the list on tripadvisor I had to try it. It was not an easy place to find because it is marked wrong on the map, hopefully it will be corrected asap.
After a while I found the place and it was well worth the effort. I had the lazagne which was very good, this was what she recommended this day. Would go again for sure.

Friendly owner, the place has some nice food, it's on a rather busy street but still nice to also sit outside, was a nice experience.
