You need to get here a bit early - when they say fresh fish - they mean fresh fish. They are also busy. Because the fish is so good! It really pays to speak French here to explain how you want your fish prepared. I didn't, but I had a wonderful meal. This a very family oriented restaurant as well. They do not serve alcohol, but have plenty of soft drink options. In case you speak no French at all, you can just point in the case and leave the rest to them. My salad starter was fresh and delicious. My Dorade fish was amazing. A simple but great restaurant. If you are only here for one night in Oran, eat here and sample excellent local seafood and life.
They even deliver !
Their website has a good map, a sample of the menu and a few photos (see page 2!)
When we travelled in Algeria, we made a lot of teastops. Algeria, like all North African countries is a great country for tea-addicts like me. I enjoyed all these locations where also the locals drink their tea
At this place in Djelfa our tea has a special smell of rose water. At each table was a small bottle of rose water.
Favorite Dish: This tea with rose water was not really my favourite one.
In Djelfa we had our tea on a colourfull terrace with a view at the mosque.
It looked like a rather new complex with nice blue coloured mosaics and many glittering ornaments in the sun.
We enjoyed to have a look at the street during our tea stop. We didn't see so many open air terraces in this part of Algeria.
If we were travelling we made a lot of teastops.
We prefered locations where a lot of locals also drink their tea. A nice view at the streetlife is also very welcome.

I like it always very much to make a lunch stop in the centre of a town or a busy street.
So you can experience a bit of the daily life around the restaurant, to do some small shopping as buying drinks.
In most of these restaurants also a lot of locals will have their lunch.
The food in Algeria is good. Everywhere you find local restaurants like restaurant Djurdjura in El Bayadh.
Like in Marocco and Tunesia you can eat couscous , shis kebab and drink a lot of peppermint tea.
Ahmed the cook was in charge of our food. Vegetables, pasta, couscous, pan de sable, and …tea, of course. Very basic ingredients, but tasty and colourful results. I really enjoyed the food and I loved the tea.
Shared taxis are the most common way of transportations between oasis towns in the algerian Sahara. Distances are large and when there is a roadside restaurant in some of the villages along the way usually the driver stops for some food and water.
They are nice places to meet and talk to local people and usually there is a menu with some choice (that is a plus in central/southern Algeria).
But sometimes there is no restaurant for hundreds of kms, so always bring at least some water with you.
The food here is great. We get sandwich everyday. Nah..not really. The local couscous is delicous.
This picture was taken on one of our weekly BBQ session every Friday evening. Time to relax and unwind after a hard day's work.
No choice. The WAC mess and the Officer's Club.
Favorite Dish: A peanut butter, catsup and a slab of raw onion sandwich!
For a while if we had spam for breakfast, we had Vienna sausages for dinner, and vice versa. Food was filling.
We can eat fleash bread although inside sahara.
With limited water and material, caravan leader bakes Togera, the saharian bread every morning.
