Perched on the second floor, this fine restaurant overlooks the Mediterranean. With plenty to offer, there is a wide range of seafood. The staff is very accommodating and service is very good. A brick oven on the premises allows for fresh, hot pita to be served right to your table. Relatively inexpensive, the food is a good value as the... More

This restaurant has one of the most beautiful sea views a dining place has in Alexandria. It has a rich collection of dishes (fish and seafood). Service is very friendly and quite fast.

The service, restaurant location, staff and view were great. Fantastic freshly made bread and great dips. I had selected the grilled fish (choice of grilled or fried) with salad. I didn't expect it to come battered which was really disappointing and did nothing for the flavor of the fish. Why would you batter a fish when it is supposed to... More

Went with a group of people from the area so I had high expectations. You pick your fish from a case of fish that are displayed on ice and order how you would like it cooked - grilled, fried, etc. It comes with french fries. I was disappointed that I couldn't order another side like a veggie. The bread and... More

they are very generous with their food, to an extent that one plate can suit two. they have a lot of Alexandrian exclusives. try to focus on the fish, not the rice nor the salads....you're there for the fish after all.

The service was terrible the waiters unfriendly we had to ask for napkins and knives. The seafood soup was tasteless and the shells full of sand. The tables were very crowded, on the whole a bad experience we'll never go there again

The food was good.. and fresh. Slightly pricy but well worth for the food, freshness and ambience .. The baked fish with white sauce was a bit too salty for myself.. the fish soup was good.. overall it's a place worth making a trip for if one planning a trip to Alexandria

We ate so much and it was all amazing. The fish market soup was really good (and I don't usually like fish soup). The grilled squid was made with green peppers and was just amazing. The fresh sea bass was cooked perfectly. The crabs just melted in our mouth. The view is really nice and because it's right on the... More
