“Great Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This is a great, easy-access restaurant. A lot of great seafood options and variety is great. The view is great but the atmosphere isn't great.

“I like fish there , you can try it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

It was a good experience to eat there.
The location is good , Nile view
The food quality there is very good.
You can take a variety of fish there.
But the parking there is limited , so you can park your car anywhere safe & take a taxi to go there in cornich elmaadi.
The staff is acceptable not energetic but not bad.
I like this branch & for sure the branch of Alexandria it is a fabulous one , sea view
The price is quite expensive.
I recommend this restaurant for Egyptian & travelers .

“Splurge, you won't regret it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

For your last night of a holiday splurge, this fits the bill. The grilled squid and butterfly prawns were as good as I've eaten anywhere. We chose a selection of fish all of which were fresh-tasting, delicately-spiced and superbly cooked. Each locality in Cairo will have its own neighbourhood version of this but if you've not got that local knowledge then go here. Plus you get an outstanding Nile view. And you'll struggle to spend more than thirty dollars a head even if you over order to the extent we did!

Very friendly service, excellent fresh fish and seafood, nice nile view, children-friendly, and above all reasonable prices. What could one ask for more?

“Paradise for seafood lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Oh my!!! I love sea food of all kinds and so do two of my Egyptian friends. We arrived hungry and grumpy, two hours later we were full and happy. Don't miss out a visit here.
