Thoroughly enjoyed my evening meal at Caracoya. Staff were wonderful; attentive and very friendly. More American-style service than French (e.g., if I needed to ask for something, not that I often did, someone was there immediately to assist), although I was there promptly when it...More

The restaurant is the going oasis for expats and diplomats. In the inner covered patio they meet to share a meal and a drink, and to forget the strict rules outside the doors. The staff is very attentive and friendly, the wine is great and...More

This is one of those restaurants one most visit once in Algiers. It’s not that it has an exquisite cuisine, or ambiance but it’s really a trip to Algiers past lively life. The first two rooms are a great example of it. Dark washed wooden...More

Excellent unexpected discovery. Very popular with locals. Good meats. Alcohol served and attentive service - something you don't always get here.

Very Cozy, nice service, the old fashoned atmosphere adds lots of charm to the place, specially in the outer section, and being located in the city center.. But always parking problems so you have to go there after shops closing. Very tasty food and big...More

If you are ever looking for a good place to eat in the city center, go for le caracoya! More than a restaurant it's an experience that starts behind a plain door. It's got the feeling of a club but the service of a good...More

This place has apparently been in business since 1966, and has hardly changed - in a good way. It looks closed, but a ring on the door bell will see you led in to atmospheric restaurant, with two indoor dining rooms, and a large covered...More
