Founded by the Berbers in the 2nd millennium BCE, the city of Tunis has been controlled by Phoenicians, Romans, Arab Muslims, the Ottomans, the Spanish, the French and the Germans, finally achieving independence as the capital of Tunisia in 1956. This history has made Tunis a mélange of ancient and modern cultures. The medina is a network of narrow alleyways, mosques, mausoleums, palaces and a souq where shoppers haggle over the price of everything from filigreed gold to inexpensive souvenirs.

Great place to savor Italian food with a Roman accent at its best in the heart of Tunis. Great pasta dishes an excellent "antipasto" spread and varied main courses. Small so reservation might be needed, Friendly staff and Italian owner who speaks a number of languages. Taaxi ride from Av Bourguiba should set you back around 5 dinars about 2 euros.

The bill came out at 120 TD for two people. Service was Brusque but professional, and the three courses (plus wine) all delicious. We basically ordered exactly what the waiter recommended; it seemed that the menu was an irrelevance. Tables very close together but still afforded a sense of privacy. Had to wait 15-20 minutes as showed up after 8pm without a reservation and every table was already taken.

This restaurant is in a beautiful palace very elegant we soft folk live music, it was a big surprise. They offered a starter free with harissa and sardines, then we had a mechouia salad and fish with bric. Super delicious, kind stuff, not expensive, very recommended!

Le Grand Cafe offers so many different choices in large 3 separate Seating floors.
We liked their pasta offerings. Please be careful that Le Grand uses harissa sauce (Tunisian hot sauce) in lieu of tomato sauce that if one orders a pasta with arabiata, it could be stingy spicy. Le Grand is very conveniently located on Habib Bourguiba where everyone comes to stroll, eat and enjoy tea or coffee.

Pricey and noisy and you often do not know the price until the bill comes. Location and food are ok. Very popular.

It was a bit difficult to find the restaurant amidst the winding lanes of Medina. Once i got there... all i can say is that enjoyed every bit of it. The staff were very courteous.. food was excellent.. the looks, the taste, smell.. all my faculties were activated. I had lamb cooked in the oven with potato.. Recommended.

This is the most popular (and en vogue) restaurant in Tunis now. It serves a French-Italian-Tunisian cuisine. La Closerie's food is delicious, and it's excellent for people watching (particularly of the Tunisian jet-set). You can find some information about it in French on the Tunisian restaurant website resto-tunisie: http://www.resto-tunisie.com/restaurant-la-closerie-,tunisie,484.html

El Ali restaurant & Café is charming, an oasis of peace away from the chaos of the medina streets.when you step into it, you feel as through you've walked straight into someone's house; a home of the past.You have to come and see to discover how tasty are the recipes, how beauty is the place and how intense is your evasion when stretch out into it's different levels reserved to a restaurant, cultural café and an airy and greenery terrasse.

I visited this restaurant with very high expectations. It was claimed to be one of the best in Tunis. Unfortunately, beyond its tasteful decor and ambiance, the quality of the food didn't really live up to expectation. It's possible that Ramadan's pressure affected the quality of the food.
Issues included a drab looking salad, they appears to have been prepared several hours before serving. The boreka was cold and greasy, and the main dish also appeared stale. I ordered a soft drink, and it was luke warm when it was served.
Service is good however, so no problems there. I will be visiting it again and hopefully the quality will be what others reviewers seem to have experienced.

Italian restaurant, located in one of the most modern and comfortable districts of Tunis, Ennasr II. Begins the activity the 13th June 2007 with one extraordinary idea, to export in North Africa the freat and diversified Italian kitchen. The professionalism of the Italian staff and the excellent quality of the Tunisian products (meat, fish) gave at the restaurant the quality we have set from the outset.
Welcoming was not that good. A person talking with an italian restaurant wanted us to wait up stairs because the table was being prepared. They did not serve s at the same time and then they apologized bit nothing else.
Pizza was saggy and average.
This was not a wow at all.
I am disappointed by service who brought bread but no plates. Servers did not smile.
