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.

I'm a seafood expert so I can tell that both alex. and northcoast branches are the of best two seafood restaurants in Egypt, I liked the varieties in the menu and the food was fresh and professionally cooked, I discussed some issues with the head chef once and he impressed me with his food talents.

Excellent place with no menu! You simply choose the fish and ask them to grill or fry. Fresh, clean tasty and value for money!
