Lonely Planet review

A special experience from the moment you knock on the grand bee-yellow arched doorway – the magnificent dining room is in the covered central courtyard of an elaborate 18th-century mansion. Try dishes such as lahma m'jamra (stuffed lamb shoulder) or lighter options, like a cold seafood salad. A Tunis institution, but we do wish they'd take themselves less seriously.
