Hard Rock Cafe in El Cantaui
The first and while the only Hard Rock Cafe in Tunisia opened in the resort area of Port El Cantaui on December 27, 2015. It would seem that to open a restaurant right in the center of the resort with all inclusive hotels – the case is a glible, but not in the case of Hard Rock Cafe.
Even tourists with all inclusive bracelets are happy to go here. For many Russians, this is a "corner of civilization" – familiar burgers, furnishings, menu with pictures. The Hard Rock Cafe bar spills imported alcohol, which is not in all inclusive hotels, and you can only buy MG stores.
At the moment (March 2020) Hard Rock Cafe in El Cantaui is the only one not only in Tunisia, but in all Magrib. In North Africa, only two, the second is located in Cairo (Egypt).
Hard Rock Cafe is located on the territory of the El Mouradi Club Kantaoui in the resort area of Port El Cantaui near the city of Sousse.
Important moment! It is not in the port of El Cantaui, but at the hotel about 2 kilometers.
