“Great food, great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Have every type of the freshest seafood. We had grilled seabass and fried calamari. Oriental salad and bread supplied free of charge. All that for $12, and what a view!

“Great view, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

the view was great as everyone stated. The food was just average, the best part was the fresh pita they serve with many different kind of dippings. I had the grilled fish, with shrimp and calamari. Maybe it was the fish itself, but the flavor was not that great. Service was sufficient, we had our tour guide, so we did not have to speak to the waiters. I will have to try a few different seafood place to really compare this to, maybe this is what seafood is like here in Egypt? I guess you can't really tell without having tried a few places. We also good the discounted price since we were with a tour company, so our cost maybe less than what you pay ordering from the manual. It was $80 for 3 adults and 2 kids.

“fresh caught fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Beautiful, panoramic view of the bay. The waiter will direct you to a case with the catch of the day, choose and weigh your fish. I opted for the sole grilled with garlic and herbs. When the dish came I devoured it with the grace of under fed swine-simply put: it was delicious! Salivating now, just remembering my superb meal…yum...salad, yum....fresh baked Egyptian bread, yum...hummus, yum...lemon juice with frsh mint, yummm...Just don’t ask the waiter for separate checks because he will go into a panicked frenzy attempting the math.
