“Fish Market: Sea Views & Sea Food, Alexandria!!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

by far This was the best restaurant we found in Alexandria and the meal we had was superb. You choose your fish and seafood from a huge counter where everything is beautifully laid out on ice and the chefs then prepare it for you on the spot. All the dishes came with a lovely amount of extras such as hummus, chickpea salads, cheese and all sorts of fresh breads. The views from this restaurant are an extra delight as you look straight out across the Mediteranian sea, so you can spend your meal watching the fishing boats coming in and out. All the other customers appeared to be well dressed locals and I wouldn't turn up here in shorts and t-shirt. But the atmosphere was very pleasant and the staff were relaxed and friendly.

“Lunch beside the Mediterranean!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

I am not a fish lover. So when our guide from Egypt tailor made, Mr. Massimo recommended this restaurant for lunch, everybody in our group were ok except me. But when I tasted the fish, it was so very delicious. We had fish and chips and also grilled chicken. But I liked the fish the most. Another superb thing about the restaurant is it's location. We had a nice view of the Mediterranean while eating. Good food, good service- highly recommended!

“Best Fish in Egypt!”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

This place is tremendous in terms of the food and the view of the Mediterranean. Had one of the best lunch on the recommendation of our guide Massimo from Egypt Tailor Made Tours. The price is a bit on the higher end. However food and the view worth the price for a great meal.

“Amazing food with great view”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

After a hot day's roaming around Alexandria, we came here for a late lunch. The view of the Mediterranean unfolds before you as you walk up the stairs, as the place is situated just by the ocean. The décor is decent and clean, stuff helpful, and food amazing. We had fish n' chips and grilled chicken - both were excellent to say the least.

The price is on the higher side though - you probably can get similar food for half the price outside. But the view is worth paying the price for one meal.

“Lunch at the Fish Restaurant”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Had lunch at the Fish Restaurant at the recommendation of the tour guide. Apparently, tour companies have some kind of arrangement where you get a packaged meal - soup, salad, grilled fish, shrimps ..., but no drink for a fixed price of 195. Since the fish that is included wasn't appealing, we opted to order our selection of Bass, Red Snapper, Calamari, Tiger shrimp, soup, 3 types of salads, and drinks. Food was good, view was great, and the total tab was 350 for 2. Plus, we had plenty of leftovers that they gladly packed!

The only negative was that the small non-smoking section, was overrun by smoke from the large smoking section
