Wow!

The best fish place in Hurghada, absolutely wonderful. Fresh fish, fresh bread, dips, drinks, afters, salads to die for. You won't get better, this place takes some beating, the price well, brilliant.

On the ground floor there is "a seafood market" (a box with ice and sea products) where you could buy fish, crab, caviar, shrimp, calamary, etc. (the price vary from 90 LE to 300 LE for a kilo).

This is one of the better fish restaurants in Hurghada, you chose your fish from the ice table, tell them how you like it, pick your sides and wait while enjoying one of there delicious juices.
