For Time Travelers: This Is Your 80s Stop!

My sentiments about this place is so mixed, so I decided to breakdown my review into points and rate each of them separately: Look and Feel: I used to go to this place as a child and coming back to it every time I feel that I am back in the 80s and that nothing really has changed since then.... read more

This is an old restaurant well known and but living on it's past glories. I was told that Anwar Sadat used to dine here when he came to Alexandria. Well, not being celebrity meant having a long wait for our food, which was barely lukewarm when it arrived. It obviously was sitting somewhere for awhile after being prepared. When one... More

San Giovani is almost one of the best restaurants in Alexandria. If you are seeking for real food; it is the place you have to visit. I visited it since early 80's with my parents since I was a child. Food taste is the same no change. Original recipes for most menu items. Restaurant had some specialists which you have... More

The most recent time I was here was for a business dinner, and it didn't fail to disappoint. The food was horrendous, and the service was indifferent at best, even for... More
