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

On the roof of the Sofitel Cecil hotel you can enjoy Thai, Chinese or Japanese cuisine, while overlooking the sea. 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

Our party of 4 attended at the China House restaurant atop the Sofitel Cecil at Alexandria, on the basis that both the hotel website stated that it was operated by the hotel, and being told by reception that it was one of their restaurants. Management declined to accept an Accor card and stated that they operated separately from the hotel.... More
