If you want to eat seafood while watching a wonderful view of the Mediterranean Sea with plenty of fishing boats in the port & watching the Quaitbay fortress, this is the place to visit.

The food in this restaurant is good - a large selection of fresh seafood , with the various fishes , crustacea and other maring life brought on a tray to your table to enable you to make a choice . A limited wine list but ample supplies of Sakkara beer which complements seafood rather well.

You will not get a smiling face. They will come and ask you, "Drinks?" If you say, "No", you will become an invisible for the staff. Food - Grilled fish is as... More
