I thought it was a really good inexpensive option and it was very reasonable and so close to the GRAND POST . I loved the ambiance and the waiters were really friendly and accomondating

Came here for dinner tonight and selected one of the fish which was then cooked to perfection and served with a range of vegetables. Wine is available at reasonable prices and the salads for starters are also good. Worth a visit.

this feels like a normal restaurant with normal people in it. Prices are good by Algiers standards and being on Didouche Mourad, it is well placed for dropping in to, if not for finding a parking space. Likeable and quick on the food front. Not difficult to see why it's popular.

We were wandering around Algiers, terribly jet lagged, trying to find a place to have a nice lunch on a Friday. Hmmm.. Just as we were about to give up, we heard the clatter of a very busy restaurant. So we walked in and ordered lunch. Very prompt and efficient staff seated us and informed us there was only chicken... More

I had a number of evening meals at the Brasserie des Facultes during a week's business trip to Algiers. I was never disappointed with the high standard of the food, particularly the European dishes on the varied menu, or the service by very professional and friendly waiters. A very welcoming, bustling atmosphere in a city where value-for-money restaurants are not... More

We went to the ‘Fac’ a couple of times during a recent visit to Algiers. Toni1013's review immediately below seems entirely accurate: we too thought that it was a perfectly satisfactory place for an evening meal with a glass or two of wine. The brasserie is right in the centre of the 19th Century colonial city, on the bay side... More

I've always walked past this place on my way somewhere else, and wondered what it was like. Walking in, the first thing that we saw were some slightly tired looking fish in a counter. A little off putting but I was already in the mood for a steak. The decor is dark and red with wooden tables and chairs. The... More

This was my second visit to Algiers within several months. On both visits, I went to "Brasserie des Facultes". With both visits, this was a highlight. Last night we were a group of 5 who were unanimous in our agreement that all that we ordered was very good. The atmosphere is colonial Algeria. If one has seen the Costa Grava... More

Ths place serves the usual food, mixture of local (like couscous) and european (like lamb chops and french fries). Everything is OK without being exceptional ; the food, the place, the service, the wine... It is quite central and rather cheap. If you are staying in a hotel close by, this is quite a good choice.
