“one of the best Fish Restaurants”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

The Restaurant is a bit dusty, but has a great location (there are more good looking restaurants than this one, in town) with nice sea view but rustique decor. Food is tasty but the price is "spicy" .

“Great food, great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Have every type of the freshest seafood. We had grilled seabass and fried calamari. Oriental salad and bread supplied free of charge. All that for $12, and what a view!

“Great view, average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

the view was great as everyone stated. The food was just average, the best part was the fresh pita they serve with many different kind of dippings. I had the grilled fish, with shrimp and calamari. Maybe it was the fish itself, but the flavor was not that great. Service was sufficient, we had our tour guide, so we did not have to speak to the waiters. I will have to try a few different seafood place to really compare this to, maybe this is what seafood is like here in Egypt? I guess you can't really tell without having tried a few places. We also good the discounted price since we were with a tour company, so our cost maybe less than what you pay ordering from the manual. It was $80 for 3 adults and 2 kids.
