Nestled in the old Ed Dahar neighborhood with lots of local shops selling fresh fruits and Egyptian artisan crafts one could get a great seafood dinner and spend a little time shopping without the hassle of the tourists traps closer to...

We visited hurghada for 3 weeks for our honeymoon and literally ate here everyday. We tried other places but always seem to be back here. The food was so fresh we would pick the live seafood we wanted and it would be cooked on the spot for us. The service was fast and great aswell.

Out from the main Hurghada tourist part, well-known to local people, you can find Joker fish restaurant. Bear in mind we're in Egypt so service is not decent but not 5-stats, fish is very good and price, without any final negotiation, stil very good. Dinner for four peoples was 40 euros. Nothing more to say, go and ask for daily... More

It is the best fish restaurant in Hurghada! There is a big range of dishes there. Fried squid and octopus are exceptional, service is really good. You should necessarily visit it!

This restaurant recommended by our Egyptian tour guide, and it was fab! Very simple and limited menu ie, what they got from the fish market that day. Prawns, calamari and snapper,cooked on the barbecue and served with dips and flatbreads. Grand sum of £20 for 3, though like many restaurants there's no alcohol unless you take your own - which...
