Best place for Seafood in Alex!

My daughter who lives in Alexandria took us to this restaurant and just wow! The food was amazing, so fresh and beautifully cooked. When you arrive there is no menu, you just tell the staff what fish you want to eat and they cook it and bring it to the table. You start off by being given a... read more

The place is at the road between alexandria and alamen. It is specialised in sea food. The atmosphere is nice, the food and salads are very good and it serves alcoholic drinks. There is late night arabic entertainment. The service is good but the prices for food and drink are high.

We were looking for charm, locals and fresh cheap seafood. At least it was fresh. And you do get a LOT of extras when you order, but it is as expensive as eating in a European restaurant, particularly when they add the tax and service charge. In their defence the food was good but just not worth it.

We visited in Ramadan and although it was evening the restaurant was very quiet and did not have much atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Best os all the seafood could not have been fresher. We enjoyed clams, squid, king prawns and salmonetes - all were simply cooked on the hot plate and were delicious. The surroundings are... More

We found Samakmak via Lonely Planet. It is on the 'wrong' side of Anfushi in Alexandria (near the port) and the outside doesn't really give you any great impression. We sat on the small terrace outside. The restaurant was full of locals (always a good sign). The fish (Samalk means fish in Arabic) was fresh from that morning and was... More
