We were a large group on the upstairs terrace. In typical local style the hosts ordered plenty of starters and main courses, all of which were absolutely delicious. I so much enjoyed the experience.

We had a great evening at Em Sherif. The food is delicious. It is not the usual high end restaurant - Em Sherif has a different atmosphere that is hard to translate but worth a visit to experience first hand. We enjoyed a great menu,...More

It is a very unique restaurant by meaning decoration, food presentation and food taste. It is not recommended for casual dining and is a little bit expensive. Suitable for business lunch.

The upper floor is used more for private parties. The lower floor gets booked up first and then remaining tables get allocated upstairs so it can be emptier. I prefer upstairs for lunch cause it has a conservatory... More
