I visited this Resturant with my family during Eid holiday .
It is one of the famous fish and sea food at Alexandria .
Yes it provide very good and delicious menu with good quality service but we all felt that is very expensive in relation to our order .
But we enjoyed the food their also its location at Bahary is great.

The fish, squid, crab, mussels, and shrimp, all look very fresh! We had grilled shrimp which was unbelievable. I had asked for grilled calamari which turned out to be amazing! Calamari grilled with green peppers, onions and tomato, and turns out they call it calamari fajita! And the side order of rice turned out to be the most delicious seafood paella! An assortment of mouth watering dips accompanies your order - two types of aubergine dip (baba ganoug and pickled aubergine), sesame seed dip (tahina), spicy cheese dip, and spicy potato salad and fresh green salad.

After such an unforgettable meal, was glad we chose to sit outdoors, to top it all off by enjoying the sea breeze and a chillled lemonade.

Let me start by saying it is expensive compared to others and that's why it gets 4 stars. It serves great fish and worth the extra money though. The food is delicious.. I simply loved it!

However, if you are a foreigner, DON'T USE the MENU! Ask the waiter for their specialties and maybe talk to the locals... Egyptians eat fish a bit differently so using the menu will make you order the ordinary plates...

the fish was fresh and the cooking excellent. Unfortunately they have no desserts. The location is not ideal but definitely worth the trip.

We went to this place after a review in a guide book.
There was no fish on display.
The food was ok at best. given the amount of fish restaurants there are in Alex, it will be very easy to find better.
