Can you imagine a place with actually no service.. It was a Ramadan night and there was a band singing in very bad and loud voice we asked for lemon mint juice.. They get us something disgusting to drink.. The place was dirty..

One of the most elite restaurants in Alexandria. For a snack or light meal try the coffee shop at the lower floor overlooking Stanley bay and its famous brigde. Lunch and dinner at the restaurant at hotel lobby. Food is delicious

This restaurant was one of the best in Alexandria in the past. Last time I've been there was 10 years ago. Last weekend I was there having dinner and I was shocked to find this huge decline in their level. The seafood soup was good but the Giovanni seafood rice was awful and disgusting and doesn't worth the even fifth... More

A great place to Dine with lovely view of sea and the water around. Has good variety of choices for food as well as well as nice music and crowd. Place is very nice, clean and well maintained with decent crowd. A must visit when you are at Alexandria.

Had some very dear guests from Romania & Greece visiting so decided to book for dinner my favorite table in the 2nd floor overlooking the Sea & the Stanley Bridge. Even... More

This is a place I have been going for at least 25 years now & surprisingly it has kept its character unaltered till now. The food is always of the highest level while the decor has been maintained which reminds me of the 80's. The waiters are all old acquaintances of mine & they all make me feel at home... More
