The new interior is elegant, on three levels, with several effective details (cactuses and crystal objects), and pretty garden and large glass surfaces.
The not too long menu is nicely thought out, with pictures and descriptions of the dishes on the first pages, followed with the price list with its city prices.
The starter arrived at our table in the form of two cheese balls, urnebes and with herbs, served with warm buns.
The soup of the day was Mexicana, an unusually seasoned and mildly piquant veal soup with black beans, corn and croutons.
The smoked beefsteak Carpaccio in olive oil had a fine, smoky aroma mellowed down with a few mozzarella balls and cherry tomatoes.
Among the unusual risottos, we tried the Thai version with chicken, large shrimp and mussels in a combination with curry and vegetables, while the mix of prosciutto, artichokes and goat cheese was also interesting, although with a less balanced taste.
For the main course, among numerous uniquely named dishes, we opted for the chicken Oscar stuffed with smoked ham, excellently baked on steak potatoes, piquant and aromatized.
From the list of desserts, we ordered the delicious fruit tiramisu served in a tall glass on a base of forest fruit with whipped cream and two scoops of ice-cream sprinkled with mint leaves.
In addition, the wine card is long and select, the staff courteous and versed, making for an all around good impression.
Meal for two, without wine: 3,000 dinars.
