“Enchanting cliffside setting and experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

What a surprise when you arrive at El Fasha. The old gate leaves you wondering if you're at the right place. Believe us that it is worth the trouble to find it. Cozy, semi-private lounge couches set into a hillside with ecletic egyptian decor, above a beach and the Red Sea makes this the perfect romantic sunset destination. Drinks, snacks and sisha make this a unique experience- would go to Sharm just to experience El Farsha!!

“Authentic Oriental”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

I was recommended to visit something unusual by a Gulet tourleader and visited that place twice. And it was only late evening - so, romantic sea view we could only predict by the lights of nearby hotels.
In Arabic "farsha" means handmade Oriental carpets designed from different pieces of material. Actually all sitting area was covered with such carpets plus lots of cushions. Located in Hadaba area on the cliff - so be ready that you have to use stairs down and after eating and drinking should climb up. Definitely no heals ;))) I went there with a designer and his wife from England - and he paid my attention to decorations: very old doors were hanging on the rocks, ancient wooden chairs, lamps, etc. He emphasized their cost - inestimable! (but for me it was just like rubbish - due to this designer I changed my mind)
We drank Gin Fizz, fresh juices and ice cream - nice!
Would like to recommend for romantic couples or chill out after the work.

“Very romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

It's carved into the cliffs and at night it's a very romantic place for you and your partner to go for a drink. One word of warning, there's lots of steps down which could be a hazard to anyone with difficulties walking

“The best view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

What a fabulous cafe. Build into the cliff above the sea this plase has spectacular view.
The bedouin style seating is very comfortable. Good selection of drinks, shisha, food, great service...
This is one of the must go places in Sharm and I would definitely go back.

“A perfect place to chill out with beautiful ocean views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

A really quirky cafe that serves the best milkshakes and fruit juices in Sharm, a great place to chill with friends in beautiful surroundings. Good for a beer and a shisha the focus here is relaxation.
