after reading reviews we had high hopes for this restaurant. we regularly eat Greek and Cypriot food but found it lacking in all departments. the staff were excellent but honestly we left feeling disappointed- especially after becoming ill! i'm not blaming the food, but it did mar the evening.

We had a really lovely meal here one evening on our Easter break in El Gouna. My wife and I shared a beautiful meze, including grilled meats and seafood. Great atmosphere, excellent service, will definitely return.

good varied menu, very reasonable prices, very helpful staff. we liked it so much we went twice! we had hummus and tzatziki to start with local bread and lamb shank stew on the first visit for less than £30 for two of us with beer and milkshake. The second visit we had home-made pizza. Lovely
