Been several times here. Service impeccable and food top notch. The restaurant is a credit to the savoy group. Some of the descriptions are strange on the menu but the food is consistently excellent. Would definitely recommend.

We have been visiting Sharm el Sheik for the past 11 years and visited this restaurant hoping for food to match the surroundings. Clearly, they haven't improved based on some of the last reviews, as the service was amongst the poorest we have experienced. No serving cutlery, no attentive service and seemingly no real welcome or appreciation for even visiting... More

Our third time returning to this fantastic restaurant. Fantastic food and service make this a must visit when in Sharm. Based in the lovely Soho Square and owned by the Savoy would recommend this restaurant over and over again. Prices comparably to what you will pay in a good restaurant in the UK.

Utterly disgusted with the food and service I experienced. I was with my family and they did not cater to my family. Very pretentious and snobbish. I would never recommend this restaurant for the price and I happily pay for fine dining providing it is of a high calibre. Avoid at all costs!

We ate here as part of S class from savoy hotel. Service was good as you would expect but I honestly think it was not that special and certainly not worth the prices charged. They forgot our prawn crackers and one meal was cold. It was replaced with a hot meal but the rice came15 mins later so not much... More
