There is no doubt, This is the best view in Alexandria & in the roof of one of the finest hotels in Alexandria Beach. Breathtaking view & very good taste and wonderful service.

First thing you notice is the great view, especially if you're a tourist or if you don't live in Alexandria, my advice is to go there in the evening so you enjoy the view and a bit later the sunset. But make sure you check the weather and get proper clothes as it tends to be cold in the night... More

This restaurant is located in the centre of Alexandria on the roof of a very classy hotel that stands along the Corniche, therefore just in front of the sea. The view is really breathtaking, especially at sunset time. Despite the fact that it was July the temperature was great thanks to the sea breeze. Unfortunately, the food quality does not... More

When the wind might be too strong for you, there alos is an inside dining room (with less view). The atmosphere is good, the staff very friendly. We took different versions (beef/chicken, Chinese/Thai, more or less spicy) of a hot... More

On the 6th (top) floor of the Cecil Hotel, located on the sea boulevard, you can enjoy a Thai, Chinese or Japanese meal while watching the sunset over the bay of Alexandria & the Mediterranean Sea. Perhaps not as good as other oriental restaurants (in my case, the subtile mix of spices in the appetizer wasn't reached, too much black... More
