My wife and i went to this restaurant in Tunis, having read that it is one of the very few establishments which serve the historical Tunisian Jewish cuisine. The ambience was intimate, as if eating in one's own home, regaled with stories and information by the owner. The food was high quality, tasty, and stood out from both the local cuisine and Jewish food of other countries.

This is a charming restaurant in the family home. They serve a variety of couscous and taijine dishes in the Judeo-Tunisian/ North American style. It is the only Jewish restaurant in Tunis and is named after the owner's mother "Mamie Lily," who is often sitting by the entrance way to welcome hungry guests. The dining room walls are covered in family photos and unique Tunisian prints. There are tables outside but it is too cold in February to enjoy the garden. Maybe in a month or two. Overall, its a friendly spot to spend a lazy afternoon.
