Just ok....

Although the restaurant was not packed out we found the service was erratic. Upon arrival, we were seated at a nice big table for 8 people but even after ordering food, no-one bothered to actually set the the appropriate table settings and I found myself taking cutlery etc off the next table... read more

When you say ''sea food'' in Sharm elsheiklh it means Fares restaurant. Definitely, the best place to eat sea food and enjoy the fresh baked bread. There are two branches. one in old market and one in Il Mercato and both are perfect but I prefer the one in old market :)

Good fresh fish, although a bit pricey for Egypt, at around £25 per head without drinks. Service friendly, but a little too efficient - we weren't given time to finish one course before the next was put in front of us.

We were staying nearby at an all inclusive hotel but they didn't have much seafood and I found Fares on TripAdvisor. It's a well established restaurant and was popular with Egyptians too. Between us we had mixed seafood soup and a platter of mixed seafood but the highlight was the whole sea bass roasted with sliced potatoes. It's a shame... More

I had the pleasure of sampling this Fares restaurant on a recent trip and I have to say what fantastic food. Bear in mind this is a fish restaurant. You choose what you want from the wet fish counter and its cooked for you to your taste. I sampled Barracuda steaks both grilled and pan fried. While we were waiting... More
