Whenever I feel like eating Couscous with mutton like the one my mother used to make, I go with my little family to Dar El Jeld restaurant. There, you really taste the true and traditional Tunisian dishes as our grand mothers used to prepare them. The atmosphere is really nice and waiters are offering great service. It is a pity...

The place is nice and the staff are friendly and professional. I enjoyed the food even though I didn't try one of the traditional Tunisian dishes.

This restaurant has a lovely, sedate atmosphere, excellent food, friendly service. The maitre d' was happy to answer our questions in English. One of the wait staff offered to take our photo without even being asked. Their one vegan dish, cous cous with vegetables, is tasty. Tunisian wine by the glass by the glass.

The best traditional Tunisian food restaurant! It is in the old médina in a very secure location as it is next to a ministry. The food is exquisite and served in a setup that is very authentic. We even went during the month of Ramadan and they offered a traditional meal which was heavenly. A bit pricy but very much... More

Had dinner at Dar El Jeld with a party of seven. The food and the service were both excellent. It's a great place to come for a large group as there are suitable tables that allow for a degree of privacy. The ambience is great, with live music and gorgeous architecture. All in all, it was a quintessential Tunisian feast,... More

I absolutely loved this restaurant, from the moment I walked in. The service was fabulous, providing great recommendations, perfect serving time and always with a smile and an elegant touch. As for the food, I couldn't have dreamed of a better Tunisian culinary experience. It's my first time in Tunisia, so I was tasting lots of new dishes, but each... More
