“Go for the fish, stay for the dips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We went for the good word about the seafood. But it surpassed on a number of fronts: lovely location, beautiful restaurant and friendly, efficient staff. But after being served a half-dozen of perhaps the most delicious array of dips and salad, I could happily have eaten just those all day. The fish was good, too: well prepared and plentiful, and excellent value Wished we could have had time to come back again. Next trip.

“LOVE this restaurant...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

I was first exposed to the Fish Market in Alexandria 14 years ago. Since then, I have dined at two of them in Cairo -- less regularly after they stopped serving alcohol -- but I still prefer the one in Alexandria. By far.

Service is fast. Fish is fresh. The set up is excellent, consisting of a selection of about ten different salads or appetizers. The freshly baked bread to use for dipping the hummus, baba ghanoush, tahini, garlic dip, etc. is heavenly. And for the first time I was served a green paste that tasted like bean. It was delicious!

The only downside is that the Fish Market stopped serving alcohol after the Revolution, so you can't enjoy a cold beer on a hot day.

I took a consultant to lunch here and she was impressed - wanted to go back before her assignment was over. I hope she will.

“Great view, good fish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Worth dining here for the view of Alexandria bay alone. A very elegant second-floor dining room, with good table settings and efficient service. The food was patchy: the fish soup was a bit gelatinous for my liking, and the hummus and other dips had been plated up some time before we ate them (slightly hard and oxydised surfaces on some dishes). But the main fish dishes were excellent: char-grilled langoustines had good flavour and the grilled flat fish (grouper or similar?) was well-cooked and tasted excellent.

This is a sister restaurant of Fish market in Cairo and ot the two this had a nicer view but seaker on the food.

“Turkish lunch on the Water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

As part of our day in Alexandria, we enjoyed the traditional lunch at this top notch retaurant. We began by being served fresh out of the oven pita bread with over 6 side dishes of dip. Just wonderful in taste and quality. We then were served fresh fish with side dishes while enjoying the view of the Alexandria coast. This was a treat and the service was just super. I highly reccomend this restaurant and am glad Ramses chose this spot for our midday meal.
