I went several times to this place and i was never disappointed. The food is good, quite large variety, and very reasonable prices. It'a a shame that so much people smoke while you're eating...

I had grilled fish, fresh and simple. My friend who lives in Tunis is a regular patron here so we were treated in a very friendly way. I bet they treat everybody that way. They tolerated my poor French and filled in with English when...More

A pleasant restaurant with good traditional food, and nice surroundings. Smoke-free too, as opposed to most other places we visited. Nice wine-list, though only very few were actually available. The quality was good, though.

We ate here early evening when it was very quiet - all the Tunisian classics on the menu, fine in all regards but lacking any wow factor. Good wine - Gris de Tunisie and pleasant staff. Reasonably priced, so not a bad choice by any...More

On a side street off of Tunis' main boulevard, L'Orient looks pretty seedy, especially at night, but inside the 1956 decor is delightfully dated, the service friendly and attentive and the food plentiful and inexpensive. A big seafood lunch for two with wine was 69...More
