Being for few hours in a restaurant with some friends, you shouldn't expect many impressions from me.
Even the name of the place is a mystery for me but I put this on the difficult pronunciation :)
It could be probably interesting for you that you'll always find somebody there to speak with, especially if you'll pay for drinks :)
Favorite Dish: Beer :)
Tunisia has the spiciest food among the North African countries.
It offers the “food of the sun” or the “sun cuisine”, based mainly on olive oil, spices, a variety of vegetables such as cucumbers, eggplants, lettuce, tomato, green pepper, green beans, zucchini and parsley, a wide range of meat of lamb and beef and in certain areas that of the camel, the fish - on the coasts - and the pastes.
Tunisian cakes often honeyed containing dried fruits: dates, almond, hazelnuts.
Bread is highly regarded and it is an essential ingredient on the table. It is used on the side, in salads, or in certain dishes.
Favorite Dish: The national famous dish, couscous is served on all occasions, prepared in seemingly hundreds of different ways from sweet to very hot;
The list will be incomplete if you forget the famous briq which must be served immediately- a deep-fried pastry envelope filled with cheese, potato, egg or meat; and quince lamb soup flavoring with dried rose petals.
A great deal of dishes are egg-based: Chakchouka - the Tunisian ratatouille, a vegetable stew from succulent Mediterranean vegetables;
The dish more consumed undoubtedly remains the pastes cooked Tunisian style in particular the spaghetti or macheroni with fresh tomato sauce and meat.
A wide variety of seafood is used year around, including shrimp, tuna, sardines, red mullet and octopus; it is no surprise that the best restaurants serve fresh sea food.
Located in the Houmt Souk port area, you will find many restaurants serving fresh seafood as well as traditional Tunisian food. Haroun is the most well known of this area, I think. There is a nice view of the harbor.
Favorite Dish: Fresh sea bass and prawns
The restaurant Dar Zmen is situated on the main road, in the middle of the Touristic Zone of Djerba. The ambient is in Arabic style and looks very attractive, especially to us Europeans. The terrace of the restaurant is superb and perfect place for a late supper.
Favorite Dish: Well, I have certain predjudice towards hygienical habbits of this people, perhaps it is wrong but can't help to mayself. Most likely I've missed some great local dish because of that, nevertheless, I prefer to eat knowing what is in my plate. Therefore am always ordering grilled meat which is of very good quality. In Dar Zmen I had great portion of grilled lamb's meat.
Restaurant "Le Khalife " serves local dishes. The waiter and the boss are very friendly. If you ask, you can smoke the "narguileh" (pipe with the smoke bubbling through water). They serve wine and other alcoholic beverages.
Favorite Dish: Specialty : agneau a la gargoulette (lamb cooked in a sealed earth ware pot)
Some time the groups of folk music come to play to put a little of atmosphere. Furthermore it is possible to connect in Internet since 4 computers inside. It also acts as bar, as room of game and discotheque.
Favorite Dish: I have only took the tea and the water pipe in this place.
There is a small very nice coffee, behind the Hotel Rym Beach in Djerba.
Tunisian typical coffee with pipes of water, tea...
You can phone there also, because the phone booths are always less expensive than to the hotel.
