I was really excited to be going back to this restaurant, on our previous visits to El Gouna, we've always had a great time here. This year unfortunately it wasn't the same. The food is still very good and the setting is pretty special. However, the front of house service let it down for us. We went 3 times last... More

By far the best restaurant in El Gouna - Amazing fresh ingredients, good service, great drinks. Must try: Mussels, Penne ala vodka & shrimp salad

The location is funky - you are on a boat but its permanently moored at the marina. The seafood spaghetti is excellent, and you only need 1 starter of calamari between 2 of you. For whatever reasons it seems more popular with Egyptians and Jordanians than the UK tourists - no idea why. Its a funky place for a drink... More

Pier 88 is a wonderful restaurant serving delicious sea food, especially penne pasta with white sauce and sea food. The tuna fish also was very good. Shrimps in hot garlic sauce were amazing. The restaurant serves fine Egyptian vines. It is certainly a place to recommend for a relaxing dinner in romantic still sophisticated settings.

Pier 88 is located in the middle of the Marina in El Gouna. We arrived without reservation, and the only option was to eat seated at the bar. We decided to stay and to experience diner at the bar. Behind the bar two friendly barmen greeted us and took our Mojito order?mThe cocktail was fine, missing a bit of rum... More

Pier 88 offers a rather nice dining experience. Located on a small raft on the waters of the marina, it offers truly nice view. It has a very friendly staff and a good selection of music. I order a beef steak and a salmon pasta. The pasta was okay, while the steak was overcooked, despite my request to have it... More
