We were searching for a decent sea food restaurant on the beach at Na'ama Bay and we were not disappointed with Al Dente. I had the stuffed prawns and my boyfriend had the Red Sea mixed fish platter and both were delicious.

I had only one complain, the pasta was al dente, this entails also a good quality, but the mushroom sauce was a cry, I never dared to order a... More

The Italian restaurant of Novotel has good service and great pizza - the best pizza we had while we were in Sharm. The service is good, but they do seem a bit short on waiters at times.
