Le Chandelier

Only a few meters from the waterfront marina you find this pleasant restaurant full of lanterns. It serves both Tunisian and Mediterranean cuisine and makes superb fish and seafood dishes: grilled, baked in sauce, and is also said to have the best grilled meat of the marina! There is also a large choice of pizzas and pastas which makes it a perfect spot for the whole family.


The food in Monastir and Tunisia is largely based on olive oil and spices. The national dish is the famous Berber couscous: durum wheat steamed and soaked in a sauce. It can be made with vegetables, fish, fresh or dried octopus, beef, veal and lamb. You will find plenty of good restaurants in the old town and the marina.
