“Friendly and quite familiar”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed eating at this place, the food was nice and the service really good.

Did end up at the wrong British bar though. It was called jive and charged double for their food. We didn't stay long enough to find out how it tasted!

Hi Jon,

Unfortunately the bar next to us are often mistaken for us, we do try to let people know, but having a new base of clientele every other week, then it is very difficult.

Thanks for the review and we look forward to seeing you.

“Failed lunch”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Don't know, perhaps we came there at the wrong time of day... We usually book half board, which allows us an opportunity to explore local quisine and all kinds of different places for lunch. So we came there at daytime, since it happened to be the closest restaurant to our hotel. They seemed to be not functioning at all (have to admit, almost nothing in Sharm functions before 5 or 6 pm). They asked us what we'd like to drink and brought us our order. 10 minutes after that I went inside (we chose the table outdoors) and asked for a menu, only to find one of the most limited choices of food we have ever encountered in a restaurant. Later we found out that not all the dishes were mentioned in the menu... Anyway, I had a steak which was pretty average, and my wife ordered fish and chips which were much below expectations either. Yes the service was rather friendly. But both the variety and quality of food, along with the price which was exorbitant compared to what we got, made us upgrade to AI immediately upon returning to our hotel!

Hi there,

First of all we would like to apologize for your visit with us, but we would like to stress the question If you were actually in our establishment. The reason for this, is that we have an exceptional day time trade, we also have very reasonable prices, a fillet steak (which we always receive great comments on, never a negative) is priced at 85 Le and fish and chips just 50 Le.

Unfortunately there are other establishments which are serving the same food as us but just not at our quality or price. We also have an extensive menu from breakfasts to steaks and salads to main meals, with a special of the day every day.

Please can you have a look at our pictures and verify this was the place you were in.

If so, we can only apologize and we can not understand what went wrong.

Thank you for your review, and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday.

Hi Angelina,

You are always welcome, thanks for a lovely review and thank you for your custom, shame you'll be missing the World Cup with us.

We are currently sourcing our steaks from Texas, USA. So they are the best quality you will be able to find in Egypt!

Hope all is well, Thanks again.
