Very unique and special place. Amazing food, huge portions and beautiful views. What more could you want. Pricey for Egypt but compared to Europe - excellent value.

What a fantastic venue. The views are to die for, the pool tranquil and the ambience perfect. I would recommend castle zaman to anyone visiting the northern Red Sea. The slow cooked food is both unusual and exceptional, the best in any restaurant that offers this type of dish. I just keep returning on each trip I make and can't... More

If the divine view of the sea and the mountains aren't enough for you,there's a scenic pool which stretches over the sea,so you can enjoy and taking this once in a lifetime picture perfect backdrop in. Everything about the Castle's interior is different,original and very well thought of,from the medieveal fireplace to the wooden carved tables and chairs.The staff are... More

We had a tour of the purpose built castle then sat on the terrace and enjoyed tea or coffee. In the late afternoon we went into the dining hall and chose our meals - salmon or leg of beef, with vegetable accompaniments. The staff lit a huge fire in the dining room which was appreciated by us as it was... More

The view and pool are amazing.. The place is unique, but: - Staff are arrogant, care much about telling you rules rather than being smiling - Paying at the gate is not understandable ! - "Non drinking on pool" rule is very awkward.. I just they are afraid from broken glass on/in pool... They can solve this with plastic cups..... More

I've visited the place few times and all the time had only amazing unforgetable memories. The food is rare to compare with any other place, the spirit of the place is gypnotizing and relaxing at the same time, treasuury room is hidden jewell. Really you have to visit this place. Besides, it has a swmming-pool and sauna!It cant be described... More

The restaurant is unique in the fact that it is a castle nestled way atop a mountain overlooking the Red Sea in Taba. You are looking at the Saudi Arabian shores. It is not designed for family with children under the age of 6 years. There are cliff views and if you bring younger children, you must have them under... More

The castle has a small pool , a bar and a restaurant. you can even do some shopping while waiting for the extra delicious food experience. go down the dungeon and buy some local glassware and handmade...
