El Masrien has great atmosphere and excellent value for money food. We really enjoyed the food. Staff were fantastic. We loved the salad. We visited the place 6 out of 8 days we were there and was great savings on food for us. Try it you will love it I assure you.

The traders are only trying to make a living but they show this by hastelling you to bits. You cannot slow down to look at anything because if you do all you can see is a shop... More

I loved it and could have spent hours there if it wasn't for my nagging husband who has a shopping phobia ;) I thought it was a lot better than Naama Bay and definitely better for shopping. Its a lot better in the evening so a great place to head to after dinner.

Here the prices are much better than any were if you want to buy any clothes or gifts and there are also a few good seafood restuarants.

I liked the old town as it reminded me of my trip to Marrakech. There is a restaurant recommended by a number of Egyptians I got talking to - El Masrien. I can see why they visit there. Delicious Egyptian food.

Everyone had hyped it up so when i got there i was a little disappointing. It was like walking round Brixton market to be honest, its just that the people were selling different goods. I ate at a very nice Egyptian restaurant though with one of my friend's.
