Massive portions and good service. We went on an evening in July and it wasn't overly busy. Not very posh but the food was 1st class. 3 of us ate starters and mains with a huge array of mezes and soft drinks and it came to until 400 LE

Visited this restaurant in the old market and what an amazing meal we had. You pick the fish you want and then it's cooked to your liking and the flavour and quality of food here is amazing. Excellent service and a great place to sample the delights of fish.

Having had a fabulous meal here in April I had looked forward to going back to Fares my whole holiday and was so excited when we went on our last night in Sharm. Unfortunately it did not live up to my memory or expectation. Our welcome was warm and friendly and the bread and selection of dips was just as... More

The staff were busy watching a football match at crazy volume. When asked to turn it down they were rude. They said customers wanted on but almost no customers were even glancing at the screen, but the staff were mostly glued to it. The food was very expensive for what it was. This place used to be great. I wouldnt... More

Every Time we go to Sharm, we visit the Fares restaurant, never tasted a better seafood cuisine from grilled to fried! The spices they add is tasty as well and it never goes wrong with a bit of lemon

It is a nice restaurant. Nice sea foods and good staff. Worst thing is no alcohol in the restaurant. Of course it is not a fine dining restaurant but if you like sea food you shold go and visit the place.

Recommended to us and didn't disappoint. Well presented (if basic) restaurant. Good choice, reasonable prices, friendly staff, and fresh fish. In the Old Market, this is a must to visit!
