“The Fish Restaurant prepares the tastiest food in town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

I am not a big fan of Balbaa as the place is not very clean. Balbaa serves oriental food-mostly BBQ and Fish. Both are tasty but if we actually want to eat BBQ we prefer Ibn el Ballad. The Fish however, is very tasty here. The Fish Restaurant looks rustique, the table cloth is actually a big one way napkin, tables are covered by mushamas (plastic coated table cloths) and are in a heavy duty condition. If you want to invite a foreigner here you should tell him to sacrifice the ambience for the taste.

“Meat lovers go for it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

This place is famous for meat kebabs. they are awesome. You must go here once atleast if you happen to visit alexandria
The bread they serve is hot, such that steam comes out if you poke it.
Must try the grill chicken. It is marinated and grilled on charcoal.
the salads are fresh and fantastic.
Youll get the best meat here!!
