The menu is in English but the staff speak very little English so you can point at what you want to eat. Meal for two plus 1.5l water about £3. Food is... More

El Masrien has great atmosphere and excellent value for money food. We really enjoyed the food. Staff were fantastic. We loved the salad. We visited the place 6 out of 8 days we were there and was great savings on food for us. Try it you will love it I assure you.

I loved it and could have spent hours there if it wasn't for my nagging husband who has a shopping phobia ;) I thought it was a lot better than Naama Bay and definitely better for shopping. Its a lot better in the evening so a great place to head to after dinner.

Here the prices are much better than any were if you want to buy any clothes or gifts and there are also a few good seafood restuarants.
