I heard about this restaurant a lot and all people said that it's the greatest BBQ and seafood in Alexandria, I tried the BBQ but unfortunately it was not good at all.

This restaurant isn't somethin for a romantic dinner, but perfect if you just want to have the best fish, perfectly grilled. The restaurant is more about efficiency than cosiness.

Simply the BEST traditional egyptian food I have tasted! Give to a real true authentic taste and understanding in how real true egyptian food tastes like! You will need some kind of Egyptian person with you to translate or show you where it is as it's very well known in Alexandria but trust me it is completely a hidden gem!... More
