Real tunisinian cous cous: Vegetarian, meat or fish and seafood. Very simple and small but food is very good. Spicy appetitizers, dehors tables, nice location in a small place inside the Mazara 's kasbah. Affordable price.

This restaurant is located in the old las kasbah section of the city. The main course consisted veggy and fish couscous. I didn't care for either but then again I'm not a couscous fan. However, the antipasta serving with eggplant, peppers, squash and chili dip...More
