We have wanted to try L'Astragale for some time at the recommendation of enthusiastic friends, including several experienced Tunis hands. We were disappointed. This is an old-school French restaurant where the goal appears to be making the customer feel inferior. This might have worked better if the dining room where we were seated didn't reek of mildew. Don't get me... More

If you are looking for authentic French/Mediterranean fine dining. l'Astragale is your best shot in Tunis. From start to finish, We had a great experience here.

We've been living in Tunis for over two years, but have only just discovered this place. We are very glad to have finally found it. I know the reviews on here are mixed, but our experience was very positive. This is a good French restaurant serving dishes that are not found elsewhere in Tunis (eg rabbit). The building looks great,... More

I went there during Ramadan time, so there was only one menu available and no alcohol available, the local food was good but what made the big plus was the place; a nice 19th century house with a large terrace in a garden. Will certainly go back there to check what's their food is like outside of the Ramadan period.

A very nice restaurant, great ambiance and attentive staff, food was also quite good, if not a little pricey. The menus are handwritten, challenging us to make out some of the dishes, but a nice touch.

From the quality of the food to the service 10/10. The very best one can find, a meal at l'Astragale is a celebration of fine cuisine .

Excellent restaurant for a business dinner. But at the same time also beautiful for a nice dinner out with friends. Very french food with good variety. German run with french cook. I wiuld say the best restaurant in Tunisia.

Thank Abusultan
