A very good restaurant probably rated as the number 1 in Algiers...
It does not come cheap...but definitely the place to impress business partners...

The place has great food and with good service and classy atmosphere. It only serve dinner at 8:00 PM and doesn't serve lunch regularly. I would have given it 5 stars if it's open all day.

Attentive but the food wasn't that great. I ate alone so the vibe was so great. The staff don't speak English and my French isn't so technical.

The Manager spoiled the taste of the food by his extremely rude and arrogant behaviour.
We had finished our Business dinner and were forced to pay cash as their Card payment machine was not working.
After making our payments we approached the Restaurant Manager to know the reason for insisting on Cash payments.
Highly NOT RECOMMENDED place !!!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

I apologised the night of your dinner that the card machines were not responding. Unfortunately this happens from time to time. I did my best to rectify the situation. It was a shame that your evening, which had been more than satisfactory up to that point, turned sour as a result of the payment difficulties.

While I am able to accept payment in foreign currency in these situations, by law I must apply the banks' exchange rates. The situation need not have escalated if you had not continued to insist I exchange at the parallel rate. You were understandably frustrated, but sadly unwilling to accept my explanation and the offered solution.

Although you followed through on your threats to write a bad review, I hope that you do not follow through on your threats never to visit us again. We would like to welcome you back again in future.
