Cafe des Nomads: "Be Aware" Sousse Restaurant Tip by hawkhead

Sousse Restaurants: 23 reviews and 25 photos

This restaurant is opposite the kasbah and has a nice roof terrace. There were no menus but we settled on ordering two vegatable couscous and two soft drinks. When it came time to pay, the charge was exhorbitant. The cost was reduced a little and we paid but we were not at all happy. The discussion continued outside and my husband took out his notebook to write down the name of the restaurant. hey presto, the cost of the meal was reduced by a further half, which was still too much. We told the man but just walked off. When we had been walking about ten minutes, who should catch us up by the waiter from the cafe, proffering a 5 dinar coin as a further reduction. This we took. When considering all the reductions, the meal was still the most expensive we had in Tunisia but had been reduced to a more reasonable level. So, either check out how much the meal is going to cost before you eat or else really haggle at the end!
