Balbaa is still the leader in BBQ food despite all rumors around this place.Service is suck but food is superior. They try to hire low service staff in order to keep the price average. I don't recommend eating sea food there, it is not the best sea food in ALEXANDRIA. But if your time is limited go ahead. Seafood is... More

Great service and variety, very rich appetizer menu, I have tried several times the meat, chicken and it was always super delicious. Tried last time the sea food menu for the first time but it was below expectations, the cooking is very basic with the exception of the shrimps..

The restaurant offers very good grilled meat and chicken on coal. The salads come in a very wide range along with several tasty side dishes. No bar no alcohol. More to family and friends and not for romantic couple dinner place.

This was probably the best seafood meal I've ever had. No one does fish & seafood as well as they do in Alexandria and Balbaa is probably the best in terms of both food and atmosphere. This is no fine dining experience; it's a loud, family-style feast. You start by selecting your fresh, right-out-of-the-sea fish, shrimp, clams, calamari and then... More
