We have eaten here on so many occasions but as an oversight failed to review. It has proven to be always good both in quality and value and the service has always been excellent. The chicken kebabs especially are a favourite, served on a szzeling skillet and always perfectly cooked. It's easy to see why the restaurant is so popular... More

Having visited this restaurant last year we were pleased to return and see it has further improved. The service was outstanding and the food excellent quality and very good value for money. True homecooked food, presented beautifully and served by the most polite, smiling waiter. Compliments to the management and the cook/chef.

Have been to this restaurant several times and the food and service is always very good. Stiffado good and Moussaka and the chef always makes an effort with 'decorating' the dish.

We are regulars to El Gouna and this is our go-to restaurant every time. Guaranteed good service and great food. No matter what you choose from the menu - pizza, grilled meats, seafood - we've never had a bad meal here. A must try if you are visiting El Gouna for the first time.
