So I went there twice within 2 days. First time was on the 1st of January 2015 with a group of German and American friends to show them what I thought was authentic Egyptian cuisine, we sat outside that time. - First problem was the lights, too dim for anyone to actually see what they're eating. - Second problem was...

From our table located in a dark room without adeguate lightening and an arabian disco music too loud, we had food of scarse quality and a rude service from the owner. May be next time it'll be better.

Four of us decided we could not leave El Gouna without eating in an Egyptian restaurant. Our dive group were a bit picky so this was the first chance we got, last day lunch! It was great fun. Our Aussie friend understood enough to select some dishes. The waiter/manager was really friendly and offering advice but there was a definite... More

Highly recommend this restaurant. Went with my husband and father-in-law. We all wanted vegetarian dishes - the waiter was very helpful and went through the options with us. We had all the food he chose for us and he did not disappoint. We didn't have any starters or desserts as there were so many main dishes we wanted to try....... More

I love Abu El Sid, be it in Gouna, Cairo, Dubai, etc. the food taste is always great with no compromise on quality and you get a very rich menu of Egyptian dishes. I love the Arabic decoration, furniture and music too.

We had reserved a table at the Oriental grill restaurant and we saw the sign of the restaurant and found the restaurant to be completely empty. We sat down at the table, ordered some drinks and the staff did not speak good english. The waiter did not understand what a "soda water" was. We then received the menu and realized... More
