Within the walls of the Hammamet Media, you'll find this cute little café. It has various areas where you can have a tea or smoke a hookah. It also has a chill-out zone with fluffy pillows and a covered area for when the weather isn't great. I suggest going around sunset and checking out the views from the enclosed area.
The Sidi Chabaane Café is in the street of the same name (Calle Sidi Chabaane) and probably one could say that the second most important coffee is in the Tunisian town of Sidi Bou Said, after the famous Café des Nattes, also known as Café de las Esteras. Like all Tunisian cafes it is very quiet and people gather - our guide told us that many men play any of the typical local games such as dominoes or chkoba. It is also typical to smoke a water pipe with different flavors of snuff, nicotine is cleaned by passing through the water, and supposedly it is much healthier, it is usually called hookah. It is really worthwhile to sit on the deck and watch the breathtaking views. The most requested are the two small terraces that overlook part of the city with the sea in the background and provide a good overview of the main street, curd shops selling all kinds of souvenirs and stalls where you can, and should, practice the difficult art of haggling for a bargain and sampling delicious local crafts. The rite requires ordering a delicious mint tea served with lots of pine nuts.
From the fascinating capital of Tunis in the direction of Sidi Bou Said, there´s a place where you can enjoy fine traditional country food. In a resort, Restaurant Le Phenix de Carthage serves typical Tunisian cuisine as well as Asian and European cuisine and a variety of very good desserts and sweets. The couscous is a speciality here that you cannot pass up. You have the opportunity to host events and ceremonies in their indoor spaces or outdoor covered ones. There´s also a swimming pool, terrace, gabezos and other items of Mediterranean décor. It is located near the ruins of Carthage Archaeological Park and a few miles from the charming village of Sidi Bou Sai on the border of the sea. It really is an ideal place for a stopover while visiting Tunisia to enjoy the exotic cuisine of the country.
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.
I recommend this restaurant. We chose it because there were quite a few people eating inside. All the food was very delicious and cheap. It's next to the Medina and has a very cool terrace. We had a Tunisian salad, a pizza and cordon bleu. The only negative was the amount of cats around. Otherwise, everything was great.
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.
Without a doubt the best cafe in the town of Sidi Bou Saïd is Café des Nattes. It is decorated with columns painted in green and red, which for those who do not know, are the colors of Islam. And I personally recommend trying the mint tea with pine nuts and a hookah which, for those who do not know, is a water pipe with which you can smoke different flavors. However, what caught my attention were the terraces, though it is impossible to find a free table lol. The views were much better in Cafe Sidi Chabanee, because here you can only see streets, but never mind.
The restaurant Au Bon Vieux Temps ('In the good old days "), is located in one of the central streets of the Tunisian coastal town of Sidi Bou Saïd, specifically in the street Hedi Zarrouk. Its cuisine is based on a typical Arabic cuisine with special reference to Tunisian dishes with French mixture. A small restaurant with a small terrace, which has fantastic sea views, the restaurant is usually full of lovebirds to be very romantic. From its walls hang various tables and including the signed photo of Jacques Higelin thanking the deal that gave the whole restaurant team Au Bon Vieux Temps. other celebs who've been: the Princess of Thailand, Chirac's wife, etc ...
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.
