If you want to have a meal to taste amazing fresh fish then this place is for you. Its a little bit like a canteen so not great for romance but a good place to share food with friends.

Pigeon soup is just great. In my opinion, this could be one of the best places in Alex where you can have kebab and kofta. Very good meat quality, and good taste. Salads are Just OK, but not great. Crowded on weekends.
