This top Fish Restaurant is the best in every aspect; prices are high but you pay for what you get. The reception is very warm, the location is unique, and the fish is always fresh.

Chez Sami, despite its legendary brand, is losing momentum. The clientele is shrinking, quality of its fish supply isn't consistent the way it use to be. I still go there once a year to remain a familiar face.

On the terrace, tables are directly facing the beach. The restaurant is big, you have some space to stay with your friends/family. They have the best seafood ! It's a bit expensive but it truly worth it. The staff is very nice and available.

This has not been our first visit. The food was good and the service was super especially by Ali. However, we still believe that their prices are probably the highest compared to other restaurants in the same area.
