We were searching for a decent sea food restaurant on the beach at Na'ama Bay and we were not disappointed with Al Dente. I had the stuffed prawns and my boyfriend had the Red Sea mixed fish platter and both were delicious.

The Italian restaurant of Novotel has good service and great pizza - the best pizza we had while we were in Sharm. The service is good, but they do seem a bit short on waiters at times.

Liked everything but couldn't manage all four courses! We omitted the pasta course but loved the carpaccio and beef medallions.
