A must visit - Best view, Food quality, and Atmosphere

The Restaurant is located on top of a cliff midway between Nuweiba and Taba, with great sea view. The atmosphere is amazing serving the best food quality and quantity ;). In a nutshell, you can't leave Sinai before visiting this awesome place.

This place is one of the coolest in the country. You have to book in advance usually, and order your food in advance as it's all slow cooked. The place is very eco-friendly, has awesome staff and bar, and probably one of the best views in this area of Sinai. Not to be missed! There is a really nice pool,... More

I had heard so much about this place from a number of people and eventually managed to get there recently. I have to say what the owner of this place has done is marvellous! The views are splendid, the service is very good and the food is original and OK. however I wouldnt rush back here for that alone!

We started by the treasure room filled with authentic hand made items, beautifully displayed. Not to miss. Depending on your order you ll wait. Seafood takes 1hr and half. Meat takes... More

Amazing food, amazing view, amazing time! There slow cooked food is something else, you have limited options however I tried the veal, beef and seafood and I can honestly say they tasted amazing! What tops it off is the beautiful view you have whilst your enjoying this meal, especially after sunset when you have the moonlight shining on the sea.... More

This place is beyond perfect, but it has to be treated as a restaurant because that's what it really is! Their slow cooking food is beyond delicious and the staff is super nice! The view is breathtaking and the place is a great experience overall that should be lived every once in a while. However, if you treat the place... More

If you are interested in the following, this is the place for you: 1. Over-priced drinks that you have to wait 20 minutes for; 2. Over-priced food that is over-cooked and greasy: 3. Seafood that is not locally sourced (their defense is that they are avoiding over-fishing, which is great, but then why serve seafood at all when all the... More
