This restaurant prices are so low but the service is so good actually. It has a very friendly staff, especially the owner. I had an amazing tea and a not so good dessert. Its view is the best directly on the sea because you can see almost all other spots on both sides its like if the shore is forming... More

We ate at 12 different restaurants during our 13-day stay, most of them random picks on the beach promenade. Unfortunately, we picked El Farnar last - otherwise, we would definitely have been pack. Service and food was superb. The usual appetizers (hummus, bread, and such) before dinner were the tastiest of all the restaurants we had tried (and they were... More

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.

It was quiet in the restaurant, but we decide to have a lunch here. The dish we asked for (grilled chicken) could not be ordered/served. This is quite strange because chicken is the main staple in Egypt. It didn't feel like having a free choice. We got a mixed meat dish....with chicken. It was dry and not warm. Maybe it... More
