Excellent fish. When we walked in, we were concerned of very slow service (lots of groups, room full, most people waiting for food), but they told us they could "speed things up" for us. We knew what we wanted: loup de mer, shrimps and white wine. We were served very promptly. A good place in Algiers.

The fish was very fresh, but not a lot of dishes to chose from. the location is very nice but the restaurant itself would need some renovation

Let's say it from start. If you go to public places in Algeria (hotel, restaurant ...) don't expect service such as Europ or US or Middle East or Morocco... There is none. The dauphin is one of the best fish restaurant I've been. Food is great quality and very fresh. Parking service and nice view are to mention. If you... More

120 euro for 6 people having fish shoup, kalamari, fried red fish and a 3 kilo fresh dorade (seabass) cooked in shalt like the traditional way. Certenly a place to go if you are in Algiers. If you haven't ever eat fish don't try to compare this to meat. Mediterraneans know the way to eat...

if you can tell the difference between good and bad fish - or fresh and old - don't visit this restaurant. also if you care about the way the guests are treated, especially small details like bringing the wine cart to the person who asked for it, the bill to the person who wants to pay, etc. the television was...

We went to this place to have a treat after one week in the desert, supposedly being the best seafood in town. To make it short: What a huge disappointment!!!! The waiter (or owner, I never found out) was incredibly rude. Even though the place was completely empty (should have been a warning sign) he refused to seat us at... More

Placed in the centre of Algiers, next to (or acutally in) the sea port with nice deco. There is a parking lot just for this resto, which makes it quite an advantage. The food is OK, not wow, if you're looking for the best fresh fish in Algiers, rather avoid this place. For those money you can almost go to... More
