We entered this restaurant merely by mistake, we wanted to run away. Ugly setting, the place completely stinks. It is run by a Tunisian gentleman, who we adored. We were not sure if to eat or not, by our great surprise the food was excellent and the bill was not high. Spent 140 euros 4 people (4 appetisers and 4... More

Had a lovely Spaghetti Bolognese with my partner. The service was excellent, the waitress was so pleasant and helpful when we were asking questions about the menu. She had a constant smile on her face which is obviously good to see. We would recommend this little gem of a restaurant to anybody.

I don't know if some of the other people are reviewing the wrong place here but let me share my experience. We had walked and found all the best "cheap eats" on tripadvisor, all packed and with queues looping around the block, as we got to last of the very busy "hidden gems" we were starting to give up hope....

It is a family run place, and this is reflected in a familiar and genuine cuisine, which I found very authentic in its simplicity. We took the menu degustation and all items where well cooked and with good quality ingredients. I recommend it if you are looking for something familiar.

In the heart of the old city, this restaurant was a warm, inviting site with great food. Nothing super fancy or gourmet, just good heartwarming pasta. Recommended!

Can't really fault it but just in the average category. Very nice setting and OK service. There are many in this category.

Smell of drains whilst eating which put me off understandably. Had set lunch. The salad Nicoises was fine. The main course was a stuffed sardine with fried corgettes which was poor. Not to be recommended.

Stopped there late in the evening when most places was finishing. I'm sure this place was also ready to close. But they where very obliging. And allowed us a table. Food was fantastic and the service was very friendly from the young lady in the photos. Would visit again.

They say that Old Town is naturally air conditioned and the location of this restaurant is proof. The owner showed a plate of fresh fish that we could have cooked to order, but not being fish eaters we got a pizza. It was a nice meal in a quiet area.

Found this family-run restaurant while wandering around Old Town and the menu looked good, was well-priced, and was crowded with what looked like locals and tourists. The bargain-priced "Menu Nicoise" was good, but not stellar. I opted for the tomato and mozzarella salad, spaghetti Bolognese and, though they were out of my first choice dessert, they provided a nice crème... More
