“Traditional Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Great Location with awesome view over the Metideanian. Still following the well established service traditions of Alexandria during its Golden Days.
Order anything from the Menu, you won' go wrong. Food is very tasty, Generous portions and reasonable prices. Budget around 100-150 pounds per person, without wine.

“Always Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We go to have lunch there from time to time since 1985, and the food is always excellent, they have a very good quality of food, I used to like the view more before the bridge of stanly was built because it blocks the sea little bit, but still the view is so nice,Try to get a table by the window,

The seafood rice is one of their special dishes and its for 2 persons (The portions are too large). I always take The Beef Escalope Panee, you can take it with cheese too, also they have very good soups and oriental salads.

The service is good but not well organized, also some of the staff are so friendly and others are not.

They Don't have parking area, but they are handling this and you can leave your car in front of the Restaurant, or you can park in the parking close to them.

I recommend this great restaurant to families (without kids), couples, Business or solo.

“Great food, great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

We went there for birthday dinner, the food was FANTASTIC, great views on the bridge and the sea, staff were very accommodating and the service was very professional. i definitely recommend any of the meat plates and the portions are quite big as well.

the only problem is the lack of parking but it is worth it!
