Heaven with a modern touch

The view is amazing. The food is perfect. Just make sure you do the reservations & order 1 day before. I didn't like the seafood plate though. The whole beef thing for 3 is the best. Even if you're 2 or just 1 person, order this plate & take the rest to go. Bring your swimwear & a light jacket,... read more

Whenever I go to this area, I never fail to spend a day (or more if I am not too busy diving or trekking in the nearby mountains) at Castle Zaman. In these harsh times for tourism, I feel it is important to support every little local initiative. This is no chain . This is a truly a unique place.... More

The 300 LE minimum per person is already excessive for what you get, but be sure to check your tab at the end of the night as the staff love to add on random unordered extras! As a group of 9, we were charged for TWELVE people. The bill also included over 1000 LE in drink charges which had never... More

Dear Cairo 124 *You were a group of 9 who shared drinks with another group and this caused the confusion in registering drinks in one bill instead of two. The mistake was figured out during finalising the bill and immediately sorted in a very smooth and friendly manner. It was not a valid reason for the discounts your group were... More

Anyone who rates this place poorly should be denied access to the Internet. This place is absolutely fantastic. A true oasis in the middle of nowhere. I would fly here just for the lamb alone. My wife and I enjoyed one of the best meals we've ever had overseas. Remember to book your reservation the day before and order your... More

Hi Stephanie, After carefully and repeatedly reading your review/email I would like to respond in few points: *During holidays all services and limits are stretched to the maximum, hence the hurry and stress observed on our staff. However they are polite, professional and one of the best in the field, they bend over backwards to accommodate every one during the... More

My husband and I were traveling to Sinai and friends had recommended Castle Zaman. They said it was the most amazing place in Sinai to watch sunset and they were right. Warm welcoming staff, just quiet enough and Delicious food. I totally understand what the castle has so many good reviews. Would definitely go back.

I visited this amazing place for the first time in my life with a couple of friends. It is a restaurant with very cosy bar and a wonderful pond like pool. I had their contacts through their website. I called and a very friendly staff answered my call and reserved a place for us. The place is situated over a... More
