When I saw that this restaurant had fatta, I was interested in trying it as my previous experience with this Egyptian dish in another country was not really good. I asked the waiter about their fatta and if they made it well with good meat. He assured me that they were well-known for this dish and that I would like... More

The waiters are just amazing. Excellent hospitality. Excellent view. Very good food. The waiters will just create whichever food you wish to eat, even if it's not in the menu. They will make you an amazing offer as well. Really loved this place. Very highly recommended and really cheap compared to other restaurants. Good portions as well.

The place is really nice and what's nicer is the people working there, they are very welcoming to their Guests and would love to comply all your needs. The food taste is really nice especially the fish. Prices are very cheap comparing to the quantity and quality of food. Thanks for all team for their warm welcomes.
