“Great Food and Service”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

We visit here each time we come back to El Gouna, excellent free starter meze and although not much choice for a vegetarian main dish, I do love the Okra and the Rice so happy days.

This time the dishes came not just with rice but with Roast Vegetables which was great and much more satisfying.

“A Little Disappointed”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Since our first visit to El Gouna, Oriental Grill has always been my favourite restaurant and we have always paid several visits during our holiday.

We went here on our first night and I was a little bit disappointed. The first thing we noticed was that the prices had gone up but it is to be expected from time to time. The service is still excellent and you still get the breads and dips on arrivial, but I'm afraid the quaility of the main meals is not as good.

I ordered the meatballs which was my favouite dish off the menu. On previous visits, this has come served with rice and it is served together in the dish. This time the rice came seperately and the meatballs although nice had far to much sauce with them.

My Husband ordered a steak. This was served with a sauce already on it although he didn't actually ask for it. For him this spoiled the steak as he prefers to eat it plain. He metioned it to the waiter who offered to get him a fresh steak but that would have meant us eating seperately so he declined.

All in all we were disappointed and did not return again during our holiday which is a first. However, we won't totally write the place off and will return again on our next visit.

“Great food, location and ambiance”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

After many trips to El Gouna, we tried the Oriental Grill for the first time this year, having seen it mentioned in several reviews. It was so enjoyable we went twice - meatballs both times as they were so tasty! Next holiday we intend to work our way through the menu as other dishes, such as the lamb cutlets and grilled fish, that we saw other diners choose, also looked delicious. Great service, lovely canalside location away from the hubbub of Downtown, and inside facilities if needed. Definitely the first restaurant we will visit on our return to our much loved El Gouna and highly recommended!

“Good value Egyptian food.”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Egyptian quinine, excellent value as it's a little off the beaten track but still only 2 minutes from the centre of Downtown next to one of the river canals. A quiet restaurant with good staff and a simple menu. Less of a tourist restaurant than most but a good restaurant to try some of the local food. Inside seating. A large (free!) 4 person Mezzeh starter, 4 main, 2 large bottles of water and 3 bottles of wine 900egp (app £90). The only egyptian wine worth drinking is the Beausoleil, a good light, very drinkable wine - we drank the white but there is also red and rose that are fine 140eg

“Excellent grilled food and very reasonable”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Not for vegetarians - this restaurant is excellent value for money.

Freshly made bread and complementary meze starters are delicious. The mixed grill is a must for all carnivores, and I just love the meatballs.

Friendly and efficient staff, worth a visit definitely.
