A mostly very pleasant experience, certainly as far as the food and atmosphere are concerned. Being a non-smoker I would suggest asking for a seat in that part of the restaurant upstairs, as the covered terrace & bar area are open to smokers. The food...More

I haven't always had the best time in restaurants in Tunisia before the revolution. Nonetheless, it seems like ever since the revolution the restaurants have become better. Le Bon Vieux Temps is proof of this. When we went for dinner I didn't expect much. Nonetheless,...More

Always a pleasure to have diner there when I'm in Tunis. The atmosphere on the outside is perfect on a warm evening especially when there is live music. I always choose seafood pasta or octopus carpaccio together with Tunisian white wine.

Excellent food and great choice from a seasonal menu. Langoustine linguine were amazing and I was really pleased with the fish starters as well (swordfish carpaccio). The place per se is not great, and I did not seem to find a non-smoking area, which was...More

Really nice salad, rather flavourless pasta. Relaxed and convivial atmosphere. Seems to be of the few places in Tunisia that serves wine by the glass but apparently that means you only want ONE glass because I am in the restaurant right now and my empty...More

Had a very nice dinner here with a friend. A nice bottle of Tunisian red wine, surprisingly good. I went for the lobster with pasta, which was a huge portion. The lobster was delicious and the pasta as well, though it was a bit too...More

It's in a Muslim country so obviously all meat is halal. But you should also know that they serve pork too. So I'd say that exit all pork dishes the rest is halal ! ;)
