It's a nice restaurant if you like grilled meat or grilled fist as it has a good variety of both... Not as neat as it used to be and usually very crowded so you might wait for some time to get a table... In general,...good to try...More

Bustling local venue. You pick out the meat or fish that you want outside where they have many grills going. Then you go inside to await your feast. Did not have the lamb soup but it's supposed to be one of their signature dishes. Waiter...then comes with fresh bread and about 10 types of appetizers, spreads, and veggies to accompany your meat. Rice and fries are also available. We went with the grilled baby lamb chops and they were amazing. Came with grilled onions that were excellent. No alcohol but plenty of bottled water and fruit juices. We were the only tourists in the place so a real local experience. Inexpensive. Highly recommend for a great meal and a great local experience!More

I am on a very short visit to Alexandria. Myself and my niece just arrived coming from Cairo. We were both starving. We wanted a restaurant that serves good food and it must be efficient. We ordered lentil soup, whole chicken stuffed with rice, “ro2a2”....With the order came 8 plates of different appetizers, salads and freshly baked pita bread hot out of the oven. The food was of good quality that is reasonably priced. I was not disappointed, we did not have to wait for the food to be served. The food was ample, we were not able to finish half of the order and we had to take the rest of our orders home. I have to admit that the restaurant was not so busy. But I think the system allows efficient and fast service even if the restaurant was full, according to my niece and others that frequented the restaurant recently. In short Balbaa serves large portions of good food with very good value for money. This review is based on my personal experience.More

Don't know if they have oysters - they do have a seafood selection but we went for grilled lamb. Prices per kilo are posted when you select your meats and tell them how you want them cooked. I don't know if you can buy... More
