Upstairs. Another one of El Gouna’s hidden culinary gems. The outside appearance of the restaurant makes it one you might walk by a few times before you stop to consider checking it out, which is exactly what I did. Usually, you can tell whether or not you can take a restaurant seriously by the size and quality of its menu.... More

The menu is not extensive but what there is, without doubt, is delicious. The service here is amazing. Could not find better. The ambience is wonderful too. I had a "light shrimp salad" to start. This consisted of shrimps, advocado, smoked salmon and caviar. Amazing. Fillet for main which was cooked to perfection and tasted wonderful. Four of us ate... More

The dinner was nice and atmosphere pleasant. Service was terribly slow. Albeit it was Christmas eve, but then they should have planned ahead and had more staff. For the price you pay, I expected more.

Very good service and great starters, tried the camel curry for the first time and its was very good not hot but v well spiced. Not a curry like you get in the UK (but then again you dont get UK type curries in India!) truly give it a go

What a disappointment to find that a restaurant with a fine reputation serves lobster soup out of a can. We asked the waitress if the soup was homemade, which she confirmed. I've tasted home made lobster soup on several occasions in the north atlantic - this soup was straight out of a can
