The food was good. I enjoyed the seafood soup the most. Grilled fish was also ok, but I did not like the rice.

My intention was to go to the Greek Club, but even with the address in Arabic we couldn't find it, so came across Akoda by accident. And what a wonderful surprise! Fresh fish by the door, you choose, then the method you want it cooked and wallah! Apart from sitting downstairs, and only having a view of the road (there... More

Located in ElShatby area, Rakoda serves seafood and grills. I ordered Salad and grilled chicken & I have to say I loved both! Grilled chicken I ate there was the best I ever tasted in my entire life.. I could even travel from Cairo to Alex just to go there again :)) High quality food, attention paid to details, friendly...

This restaurant is a very good example for a delightful experience in Alexandrian sea food restaurants. The seating is normal, nothing fancy about it, typical egyptian restaurants. Try fried shrimps "head and tail", shrimps in tomato marinar sauce and ask the chef for its soup, and as an excellent appetizer, take the small clamps boiled with oil, lemon & garlic... More

Rakoda is (another) old-style fish restaurant, but on the "other" side of the Corniche, so lacking a view. Hence, it lacks the ambience and name recognition of the obligatory "Fish Market" and so serves all the same stuff for about 3/4 of the same price. You choose what you want from the iced table, they cook it however you want,... More

This restaurant is located on the cornishe overlooking the sea, just after the Bibliotecha going East. It's pretty new, and one of the few restaurants I've seen that actually have tablecloths on the table. Like most seafood restaurants in Alex, you choose your fresh fish or shrimp or whatever and tell them how you want it cooked. They bring a... More
