If you love fish and sea food then you have come to the right place. Great wine and service makes this the ideal location to visit if you are in Algiers.

Hard to say as we never got to eat anything!!! Nice building and position on the foreshore. Ambiance ok and from there it all went downhill. It took a good thirty minutes to be asked if we want a drink or menus. Bear in mind, there were only 5 tables occupied and four waiters. After 65 minutes we got a... More

I dined there yesterday night just before the flight . The decor was poor but I don't mind as long as the place is clean and the food is good . BUT , the napkins was soooooo dirty that you want to change even the plate that touches it. The table cloth too. So , everything looks dirty. I was... More

This is a very good restaurant with an amazing view over Algiers. The fish is fresh and delicious and the service is top. In our case we also tried "carabiniere" and it was top quality. You can go by car and park in the restaurant park. A must in Algiers.

A very spacious restaurant with nice view at night. The variety of fish and seafood was ok on my visit, however the quality of preparation was not the best. Prices are extremely high versus the quality of food and service. It's convenient for inviting business people, but not for family or intimate dinner.

at 14000 DZD - say over £30 a head - this is not for your unwellheeled tourist. It is also famous in local circles as the place the French Cabinet dined at ensemble in 2013. Several of them were ill afterwards. Our British trio survived sain et sauf, however, and I have not heard tales of others having suffered after-effects.... More

After 1.5 hours we were served with cold fish which was badly fileted and the french fries were so soft (I actually asked for very crispy fries) that I thought they were steamed. I returned the food, because it was an insult to the customer. Never ever again.

Excellent fish. When we walked in, we were concerned of very slow service (lots of groups, room full, most people waiting for food), but they told us they could "speed things up" for us. We knew what we wanted: loup de mer, shrimps and white wine. We were served very promptly. A good place in Algiers.
