The original in Alexandria is renowned. Not as well known in Cairo and the food is not as varied, but still worth going.

For seafood lovers who like clean and decent place regardless the prices you will love it. nice view and great service, easy parking. The best thing about the restaurant that the atmosphere is different from any other seafood restaurant in Egypt. many celebrities go there. Very recommended but prepare your wallet.

Fish was very very tasty and service was very good. We had the grey mullet which was delicious 5/5. Unfortunately we also ordered the seafood soup and the "jumboree" (prawn) soup which were watery 1/5.

Great restaurant located on the Nile. Great fish available in a nice 'local' / 'untouristy' atmosphere. You can also rent a small boat and have your meal on the Nile. When ordering, you pick the fish and it is sold by the weight. Service is very friendly and the bill is pretty cheap at the end! Awesome place.

From the location to the service, to the variety and preparation of the seafood on offer, it is very difficult to fault this restaurant, which deserves its reputation as one of Cairo's premier seafood places. We opted for the mullet (grilled) and shrimp (fried), together with a range of salads all of which were served right next to the Nile,... More

This is a top restaurant for fish. I was particularly impressed by the swordfish. Prices were cheaper than Italy. The swordfish was going for 120 EGP per kilo and you had also prawns that were ranging from 160 to 200 EGP depending on size. On top of this you had also sea bass and some other types of fish. The...

The best seafood restaurant in Cairo, and we tried quite a few! We were able to choose our own fish/crabs/mussels and have them cooked the way we wanted. The fish we selected was grilled perfectly, and literally melted in my mouth. The soups and appetizers were pretty delicious too. The staff were friendly and helpful, and we had a good... More
