Trying a little too hard

Food was cooked well by Egyptian standards and might persuade some that it is 'fine dining'. Pretty arrangement on a plate is one thing - but flavours showed a lack of understanding what fine food really is. Lamb with cherry sauce sprinkled with Parmesan - well I think you know what I mean!

More akin to fine dining but the 3 course selection from any a la carte dish option is good value. We visited twice in one week.

We went to this restaurant whilst on holiday on the basis of the recent reviews, we were either very unlucky or the reviews are over exaggerated. We were give garlic bread - which was buttered with added garlic and not heated up. the Pate would have been OK but for the very liberal covering (smothering) of balsamic vinegar and the... More

Sophisticated, implementation is all-encompassing and balanced. In this restaurant you feel the good taste, in food, in menus, in atmosphere and in service. Though you get the taste of gourmet, the prices are not of the highest in El Gouna. After two visits the quality was most homogeneous.

Really good food and service here, a bit quiet but then it is January :-) Very easy to get to from all of El Gouna, just get a Tuk Tuk ( less than 1 euro per person anywhere in El Gouna) to Downtown bus station, 100 meters up the road

This is definitely a restaurant to visit and the experience is plush, opulent and worth it. You can tell that they are all about the experience from before you walk in, yet the menu is simple, realistically priced and food excellent, both quality and taste. A very nice "last night on holiday" restaurant choice.
