Restaurant Guide, Dining

Everyone needs to stop and eat once in a while and Algerians are no exception. There are a number of roadside coffee shops or diners, restaurants and cafes. Tour buses traveling in the Sahara will often make use of whatever roadside diners are available. This gives visitors an opportunity to stop and dine while looking out at the majestic dunes of this great desert. The majority of other restaurants or cafes are located in the midst of busy city centers. Some offer excellent views and restaurants are usually a great way to mix with the locals and get a feel for this lovely country.

Algeria’s restaurants may not be as big or modern as restaurants in other parts of the world and if you feel uneasy about eating at some of the roadside cafes or restaurants, you might prefer to eat at hotel restaurants where the standards are usually higher. It is also good to note that such a cautious attitude with regards to eating at the local dining spots is generally unwarranted as the food is usually prepared with the utmost care and hygiene. You will also find that there is a variety of food types on offer in the country.
