Au Bon Vieux Temps
Au Bon Vieux Temps (56 rue Hedi Zarrouk, Sidi Bou Saïd) –– far from being a chain, Au Bon Vieux Temps boasts two of the best restaurants in Tunis situated in the coastal resorts of La Marsa and Sidi Bou Saïd. The branch in La Marsa can be reached by rail and is conveniently situated opposite the station. Italian cuisine is high on the list of gastronomic choices complemented by fresh fish and excellent steak. The Sidi Bou Saïd branch lies on a cobbled street in the heights of Tunis. Its claim to fame is the passage of the renowned French author André Gide who resided here during the Second World War. The menu proposes a mouthwatering blend of authentic Tunisian and modern French cuisine reflecting a long history of two cultures.
