    Chez Abdul: Another day, another dinner

    by TheLongTone Updated Feb 12, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Someone else on VT has described this restaurant as overpriced. I suppose they have a point, but this is a tourist town, there's little competition and you only have to look at the number of tables to realise that this is not an ordinary Tunisian diner. That's before you clock the stickers for a multitude of 4x4 'desert safaris' adorning the doors. Chicken brochettes, chips & a salad cost around TD7, which is a bit steep but not grossly so, and I thought it was good. Mind you, I had just returned from a fifteen km walk out to an outlying village and could probabley have eaten almost anything.

    Chez Abdoul: Overpriced Local Restaurant

    At Chez Abdoul

    Chez Abdoul was a little disappointing. There was no menu outside, though it seemed fairly busy, and as it had been mentioned (though not exactly recommended) in our Rough Guide, we decided to chance it. It was an interesting variation having to choose our courses from a long list in French given by the waitress but this also meant we had no idea of prices. I had a salad for starter followed by a lamb couscous while Ruth had salad and chicken

    The bill came to 20 Dinar, cheap by European prices, but much more expensive than similar meals we've had in Tunisia. The lady serving was friendly enough but I get the feeling they get a lot of tourists around here who don't search around much for restaurants so it's easy enough to serve up any old fare.

    Troglodyte restaurant

    All troglodyte restaurants look the same

    Many of the Matmata's scenes of Star Wars are now converted into restaurants. The food is basic but correct. Most of the time you have no choice and eat a couscous.
