Not in the best of locations being opposite the fish quay but this is an excellent restaurant if you want to enjoy an Egyptian Fish Restaurant. Service is good and choice of fish is excellent or simply choose from the set menu.

We had a lunch meal at EL Halaka restaurant during our stay at PLR hotel. The food is very tasty, the service is excellent and the prices are reasonable enough.

Seafood is one of the meals I like to have it at restaurants, I already had a lot before as I am "seafooder" But this restaurant is one of the best restaurants I ever been to. Prices are reasonable and the service is very good too.
