Several doors down from the restaurant Dar El Jeld is a yellow door with a stone plaque outside marked simply with the words Le Diwan in French with no other explanation. Le Diwan is a restaurant, an art gallery and an up-market shop selling beautiful handcrafted Tunisian objects. It is also owned by the Dar El Jeld restaurant.
The interior design of Diwan allows visitors to appreciate many outstanding examples of intricate stuccowork which resembles fine lace work. It is worth noting that the stuccowork is painstakingly carved in situ onto the panels of white plaster.
Le Diwan is open everyday except for Sunday and can be located at
10, rue Dar El Jeld,
La Kasbah, Tunis Medina
