It is a relaxing place, gorgeous view, good service, nice food. ( did not like beef red curry, too spicy and not good taste. especially that I ate this... More

We go here a lot due to the stunning views and great sun sets that can be seen from the roof top terrace. It is refreshing place to go on a hot day thanks to the breeze coming off the ocean and is a little oasis right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the corniche. The food... More

First thing you notice is the great view, especially if you're a tourist or if you don't live in Alexandria, my advice is to go there in the evening so you enjoy the view and a bit later the sunset. But make sure you check the weather and get proper clothes as it tends to be cold in the night... More

This restaurant is located in the centre of Alexandria on the roof of a very classy hotel that stands along the Corniche, therefore just in front of the sea. The view is really breathtaking, especially at sunset time. Despite the fact that it was July the temperature was great thanks to the sea breeze. Unfortunately, the food quality does not... More

On the roof of the Sofitel Cecil hotel you can enjoy Thai, Chinese or Japanese cuisine, while overlooking the sea. When the wind might be too strong for you, there alos is an inside dining room (with less view). The atmosphere is good, the staff very friendly. We took different versions (beef/chicken, Chinese/Thai, more or less spicy) of a hot... More
