Since it is not preferred to have sea food in Alexandria in such a place as I always recommend the very old oriental restaurants for sea food, but this place is quite good for having a sea view seafood meal.

We both tried the fish soup as the picture looks amazing in the menu but it was terrible. It contained canned mushrooms, shrimps and squid that were suspiciously similar ones and a 2 or 3 lovely fresh fish chunks. The grilled fish was great! But pricey. The sides and accompaniments were all pretty poor. If you stick to the fish... More

The food in this restaurant is good - a large selection of fresh seafood , with the various fishes , crustacea and other maring life brought on a tray to your table to enable you to make a choice . A limited wine list but ample supplies of Sakkara beer which complements seafood rather well.

Egypt is known for its Arabic hospitality, food and people. However, this restaurant is an exception. Hospitality - People serving in this restaurant are very impolite and rude. You will not get a smiling face. They will come and ask you, "Drinks?" If you say, "No", you will become an invisible for the staff. Food - Grilled fish is as... More

It is in a nice location by the water. Their carriages can take you there. They do serve alcohol but you can drink elsewhere and a much better and less expensive meal. I had been in Egypt for four weeks and this was my last meal before I left back for the stars and was very disappointed. Lonely planet tells... More

Alexandrians love their seafood and everyone has their favourite restaurants when it comes to feasting on fresh fish. With a picturesque view of the Mediterranean Sea and a reputation for fresh fish, Fish Market is a popular choice for Alexandrians and tourists alike.

Pretty much a perfect visit. I didn't exactly understand how you ordered and pricing, but it worked out fine. A little over $20 per person. Good suggestions. It took longer than expected, but now I think what they sold as rice was rossotto (sic) and prepared fresh. Well worth the wait and all was hot and perfect. Make sure you... More
