This restaurants' generous portions are guaranteed to satiate any hunger, and do stop by if Mediterranean cuisine, and seafood in particular, is your thing. Try the "Mezza" - tapas-sized small dishes that can be ordered to share.

Dining

Tunisian cuisine, much like Tunisian culture, is a blend of culinary traditions from various parts of the world, from indigenous nomadic populations to Arabic, French, Turkish and Italian influences. Some of the dishes you are likely to find on a menu are "tajin" (frittata-style dish), "couscous" (not just as a garnish, but a full dish with meat and vegetables), "shakshouka" (ratatouille prepared with eggs and tomatoes) and much more. Tunisian food tends to be spicier than that of other North African countries, so make sure to ask for your desired level of heat prior to ordering.
