“Cheap as chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

We went to Sharm on 08/09/2013 for a two week stay and found our food to be pretty awful so my partner and I came here to eat several times; with couples from the hotel and meeting his brother there.
First time we had fillet steak with pepper sauce and a beer each which came to £20! brilliant. And it was the tastiest steak I remember having. No gristle, great flavours.
There are lots of cats hanging around and you often see the staff running around with cleaning spray trying to get them away which is quite funny but the cats are harmless.
Second time, I had a breaded chicken with chips and found brown/black stuff in the chicken which put me off. The staff told me this was mushroom but it was not mentioned in the menu that there was mushroom. It did taste good but just put me off.
If you're a girl with long hair, I would recommend not to sit by the HUGE fan outside haha. It's quite strong and you'll end up eating your hair.
Always had good food, good drinks, good service and great price here! would definitely recommend.

“Good good and good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

Food was very reasonable - less than £3.50 for half a grilled chicken with rice and veg or a platter of seafood for a tenner. Location in Il Mercato good because you're away from the traffic and can people (or cat) watch. Waiter from the bar across the pavement will bring drinks to you as no alcohol served. Very friendly maitre d' and staff. Wish we'd found it earlier.

“Very Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

We had one night out for dinner, we were recommended this restaurant from one of the reps. Very cheap, but very good food. Only over the road from Holiday Village where we stayed.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

Ate here 4 times during our recent stay in Sharm. Recommended by one of our diving buddies, we went to the Stella Bar first and ordered from Onions (the agreement with the Stella Bar and the local restaurants is that if people want food at the bar or vice versa, the staff will arrange it to be brought to you). The Cheeseburgers are gorgeous as is the rest of the food! We tried so many different starters and mains, the portion sizes are massive!

Would recommend this place for both the food and the staff.
