If you walk along the strip north of the bridge at Masbat Bay the restaurants have the daily catch laid out on ice so you can spot your lobster. They're usually spiny lobsters or slipper lobsters. As soon as you start looking the guys will be mildly hassling you to come in but they're easily fended off. Ali Baba is a good restaurant in that area.

For a more basic fish restaurant - cheap and cheerful - try El Youssef in the main square of Assalah. Everything's fresh, good mezes and it's next door to Drinkies bottle shop so you can BYOB of beer or wine.

Try it! You're on the edge of Assalah's square at an outside table with all the bustle of the evening market. Everyone doing their evening shopping, kids running around, raucous traffic, lots of smells of cooking food.

And you're in Egypt.
