“Seafood heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Restaurant was situated 2 minute walk from our hotel (iberotel il mercato). Seating available both inside and outside, we sat outside. Appearance of the restaurant is nothing fancy but there were plenty of wait staff and we were seated quickly. we were automatically given freshly prepared pita bread (we could see it being baked in the outside oven!) and a large bottle of water. My partner got the fillet of the fish of the day which was a whole fish butterflied and grilled and I got the seafood platter which consisted of lobster, crab, clams, shrimp, fillet of the day and a few others I have forgotten. All were delicious!! we were told that the meal came with rice and this never arrived but we didnt ask for it as we were stuffed from the bread and large portions of fish! I also got a can of soft drink and the bill came to approximately 360 egyptian pounds (this included a gratuity). The meal was excellent value considering the platter was one of the most expensive dishes on the menu and could have easily fed two people! Worth a visit for any seafood lovers (not so if you dont eat fish at all as I didnt see any non fish items on the menu!).

“Very nice food with reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We tried the seafood restaurant in Sharms old market. A very popular restaurant, good and fresh seafood reasonably priced, service a bit hit and run, however not bad. We will visit again before we go back home.
