A luxurious spot, frequented almost entirely by the local elite. The decor is modern, with spacious interiors. It has two terraces on the seafront, offering a breathtaking view of the Mediterranean. The location and atmosphere are perfect for a romantic evening, but in my opinion, the food doesn't stand out too much.
Dar el Jeld restaurant is located in the Medina, very close to Kasbah square. It's a very nice restaurant, with Tunisian food and Arabic décor (which was very ornate). As is the custom here, before our meal they brought us several starters on the house, so keep that in mind when choosing the dishes. The cous-cous is very good here, and the sweets.
Dar Belhadj is a lovely restaurant in the medina, not far from Zitouna Mosque, that's perfect for a romantic dinner. Don't be fooled by the gritty entrance...the interior is all linen tablecloths, elegant dishes, and refined flavors. Don't miss the mixed starters plate drizzled with fresh lemon juice and mint!
On our last day of vacation in Sousse (Tunisia) our goal was to get the last shopping done before leaving the country, a must for the "bargaining zone". Walking through the vast World Heritage medina we found a nice place to eat. After some shopping and getting lunch we went out to find the restaurant. We ate alone but were accompanied by the baby of the owners and the child's parents, a home cooked meal which was big. We ate very well but it turned out to be a little more expensive than we were used to. (About 15 euros for 2 people). Restaurant Cafe Seles Ruebounawas # 42 Medina Sousse Tunisie 4000 Bad el Gharbi . Ferroviarrias has lines connecting the country which are easy to use to get to towns and different places of interest. The means of transport are "outdated but safe" and cleaning is not their thing. The other pictures belong to Djem amphitheater and Ribat of Monastir, which was surprising for many reasons. Trotamundos took us and turned out to be helpful.
Le Dôme is the restaurant in Tunisia Palace Hotel. The menu is varied and there are generous starters, as is the custom in this country. The décor of the restaurant stood out, above all, because of its stained glass and gold leaf roof.
The Great Medina of Tunis is full of tea houses where you can take a break from shopping and enjoy delicious mint tea and sweet Tunisian pastries. Although they're geared towards tourists, these tea shops are preserved down to the last detail. I can't say they they'll offer a relaxed, home-like atmosphere because they are always full of people and quite noisy. But, they are a perfect place to take a break and chat over what you bought in the Medina. Be carful of the prices! They can go a lot in high season and it's easy to get ripped off. It's best to always ask to see the menu and even do some haggling to get a good price.
