Nicely designed reminded me of typical russian restaurants. I have ordered shrimp salad it was nice, and lobster with butter sauce & in... read more

I may have saved the best for last in El Gouna. I ordered the Barracuda carpaccio and the fresh egyptian lobster followed by vanilla ice cream with strawberries. Amazing!!!

I went to visit chez Chantal based on the reviews here on trip advisor..we knew the restaurant was over priced but thought we would get exceptional food choices and exclusive cuisine.. We start out by ordering 4 appetizers and the main dishes.. It starts going downhill when the appetizers arrive.. The so called home made foie gras is not home... More

I expected from such an over priced place to serve top dishes, but it wasn't like that. My Friend had a whole shrimp crust in his super expensive soup, and my other friend had a shrimp cocktail which was a joke. I had scallop carpaccio which was FROZEN what actually destroyed the scallops texture. After we had our terrible starters,... More

You can get meat at the same quality but better prices in places like Captains Inn. They pretend to be above the average but they are not. But beware ordering an espresso or even a double! 8 Euro (app. 12 US) for it. Rip off!

What a terrible experience from start to finish. My husband got off to a terrible start by having a problem visiting the horrendous bathroom due to a member of staff lying to him about the availability of the toilets, but I will leave it up to him to share the review of his experience. We went to Chez Chantal during... More

I love this restaurant as it is beautiful and I also love the steak chantal! Highly recommend for the food! It is expensive though but worth it :) the only problem I had with my visit this time was the service :( we were left with our starter plates until the main dish came out and the waiter wouldn't even...

The ambiance is really nice and the food is good. The prices are high if you compare them to other restaurants in the area. The big problem is with the service. Expect to order at least a 3 course meal or else you will be treated with disrespect. The owner is really rude and she wants to get as much... More

The experience begins with the stairwell up, then the view takes over, and finally the food and service rounds the evening off. A must visit when in El Gouna !
