This is a great place to eat fish and the simplicity of the old decorations is the most attractive and unique thing in this Egyptian style place. Eat until you are full from eating the fresh seafood they serve with inexpensive prices. Just note that most of the time, this place is very crowded with people who want to eat the restaurant’s delicacies, so it is possible that you will wait sometime before you can have a seat.
