Outstanding view of Rauche Rock and sunset for romantic viewers, medium quality dishes and food, overpriced for the served food quality/quantity, and good Iftar package during Ramadan. The food quality is not compatible with the price tag but the Rauche Rock and sea view compensate a bit for the inconsistency. For an unknown reason the first question you'll be asked... More

Went there as a late night friends gathering and hangout. Its located directly near the famous Rawche Rock and the views are breath-taking. The service is very very poor to non, from taking the order to serving. We all ordered drinks and coffee and all were disastrous (the lemonade was very bad mainly) and the coffee was tooooo sweet. The... More

I ordered a steak "medium rare." The waiter actually asked, "pink in the middle?" The steak that arrived was cooked "very well done," it was like shoe leather. The meat was laid upon a piece of bread, and the entire plate was soaked in a disgusting brown gravy. I ate the vegetables and potato served with the meal and left... More

We only stopped for drinks on our way to the airport - I had a very interesting... More

I've been to Bay Rock Café for lunch & dinner as well. I have had it all and it was great. The food was good, drinks as well. However, the service could be worked on a little. After all this place deserves it, especially because of its amazing view. Cheers! For a great view of the rawcheh rocks that's the... More

After an invite by a family member to go and eat somewhere in the Khaldeh area at a God forsaken place called Em-Ali, which supposedly had fresh fish. It turned out that it looked like one of those abandoned diners on highway 66. I couldn't help but submit to my relative's pleads and enter the establishment. It was like entering... More

The spot is amazing with a view to the famous Rouche, the huge rock emerging from the sea with a hole on its lower part. With two levels and hosting more than 400 peolple at a time There should be a non-smoking designated area. There is arguile ( aka hooka or shisha) and it is unpleasant to taste the food... More
