After a fabulous but exhausting trip to the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, our wonderful Egyptian host, whisked us off to the Greek Club for a late lunch.
If you sit in the far corner you can see both the Eastern and Western Harbour with a prime view of the Qaytbey Fort, the site of the original lighthouse of Alexandria. It really is a wonderful spot to sit and relax with the sun shining on the water, the brightly coloured boats bobbing away under a blue sky filled with fluffy white clouds. A wonderful place to spend the first afternoon of 2013.
We ate delicious homemade taramsalata and greek salad followed by calamari, crab and huge prawns all accomanied with local flat bread. Everything was wonderfully fresh and tasted delicious. This is a restaurant our host has been eating at most of his life being a native Alexandrine so it came with the best of recommendations.
The main course was fish served on platters , obviously very fresh and perfectly cooked.
We all so full that we didn't explore the deserts.
The decor is fairly plain, simple and clean but to be honest, nobody comes to look at the restaurant with the whole of the Alexandrian corniche and harbours laid out before the dinners.
All I can say is if you get the chance to go, enjoy!
Regarding practicalities I am afraid our host, despite manoeuvres to outwit him, didn't let us get near the bill, so I don't know how much it was: I understand a meal with beer is around 150 le.
