The fish and shrimps were more than average although they over cook them a bit. Mezze were less than average, service is acceptable. Didn't like the green salad, found it uneatable. The place looks old and needs refurbishing. Prices are quite cheap for a fish restaurant.

I liked this restaurant quite a bit…the problem is one of language. They have no real menu, and the waiters don’t speak much English. Thus, it is hard to figure out how much things cost, and I am fairly certain there is a “tourist-price” premium. When I asked how much the Stella beer was, I got an answer of “somewhere... More

If you love fish, this is the place to go. A retrofitted ship, this place has great views of the Nile, gorgeous at night. In order to pick your meal, you go leave the ship to go to where the chef awaits you with the day's fresh catch. Then he prepares whatever fish you pick out as you request. Delicious!

The taste was very good as well as the service. We ordered different variety of dishes, which were liked by everyone. The Salads were amazing as well.

Disappointing experience, be it the layout, atmosphere and more importantly the food. Too many spices in all food be it the appetizers or the fish. Even if you beg not to put the spices, they do not know how to cook without them. Not recommended ever, be it the prices or the quality.

I was part of a large group, weeknight (Sunday) booking. Service was a little slow but eventually several tasty apps appeared then the main course: delectable grilled shrimps and whole fish served with garnish. Excellent! Our group arranged a 30-min boat trip on the Nile in the restaurant's launch (18 people max).

In the middle of Cairo, and on the Nile, is this sea food restaurant. You walk in and are seated and given a table number. You walk down the stairs and visit the open display of the available array of sea food on ice. You give the chefs your table number. You make your choice and tell the chef how... More
