Al Hambra

Low-budget travelers will find Monastir a great place for cheap meals. Especially Al Hambra can be recommended for small pockets and great hunger. Step in for lunch or just a quick coffee in the afternoon, you won't be disappointed.


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.
