I always visit Fares Seafood Restaurant whenever I travel to Sharm El-Shiekh. Fish, shrimp, crabs and clams are always fresh and nicely presented (if you like, you may choose your meat from the display fridge before placing your order). The soups are really tasty (try the Seafood and Fares soups). Starters and freshly-backed bread are served with a reasonable price... More

Located close to the Old Market, this restaurant is the best option after shopping. The food is amazing, served fast, the value for money is unbelievable. If you are looking just for a dinner and not shopping related evening out, I would recommend Fares Il Mercato, the younger more modern brother of this restaurant.

This is by far the most amazing fish restaurant you will ever encounter. Pick your fish outside the restaurant: choose grill or fried; wait 20 minutes or so, and you will be rewarded with a heavenly meal. Fares fills up quickly in the evening with hungry families, so wait too late to get in line.

We were taken by a local chap.. The old market is very "local" although the shops target tourists. You can pick your fish from the counter and it's all fresh. We had 10 small dishes unlimited bread... seafood soup with soft shell crab an enormous salad and a seafood mixed grill with amazing fresh prawns. We couldn't eat it all... More
