The restaurant is very nice. When you enter you feel welcomed. The waiter welcomed us with a small (free) cup of Hibiscus juice. The mode is tranquil and warm. Our table had a sea view. My husband and I ordered grilled Kofta, rice, Chicken grilled on the Turkish way and cream soup. It was delicious and we were happy with the food, bread and salads.

The food can be better. but the overall experience was happy.

had a very tasty meal here and the waitings staff were attentive. If you happen to dine upstairs and want fish, they'll get it for you and visa versa. But from upstairs the view over the corniche is great.
I have seen the comments about bread and water. In all the restaurants we visit in Alexandria they always bring water, you only get charged for it if you open it. You don't want to pay, don't open it! Bread is brought automatically but you can refuse it, and yes again, everywhere in Alex when they bring bread it's chargable, again send it back if you don't want it. Simple!
Tax at 10% and service at 12.5% is also standard in Restaurants in Egypt and anyone dining should add 25% to the menu prices to reflect this.
