Le Barberousse

Tremendously popular with local and international diners, Le Barberousse is another restaurant set directly on the Medina ramparts. Views from here are superb, and the menu doesn't fall far behind, listing a wide assortment of fresh fish and seafood dishes.


Eateries in and around Hammamet (and the Yasmine resort complex) cater to a plethora of different tastes, given that the city regularly receives large numbers of foreign visitors. Seafood features prominently on local restaurants' menus, and so does lamb. One local specialty not to be missed is couscous, a dish containing the grain itself along with meat and/or vegetables. Meals often come with a side of harissa - a spicy peppery paste, to be mixed in with food or used as a spread.
