Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place is an absolute gem! Do not judge a book by its cover. The fish was incredibly fresh, melt in the mouth and delectable. Service was fast and waiters were extremely attentive. I would highly recommend for any fish lovers. We as a family...of 4 easily devoured 3kg.More

Across the road from the main fish market in Hurghada, this family run authentic fish restaurant serves some of the best food we have eaten. Highly attentive servers and perfectly cooked food make this a must visit

4 adults, drinks ordered, food ordered. After 30 minutes still no drinks and the wrong food was brought. The negligents always just say yes, but don't understand anything. No English, no interest and this place is comparable to a disco - music too loud, no...gastronomic experience, no interest and absolutely terrible service. Not recommendableMore

BE WARE! THIS PLACE IS A SCAM! I don’t know how this place has good reviews when they simply try to rob their customers. I just had dinner there. I am Egyptian and my husband and mother are white American. We ordered our food. The...menu was in English and the prices were reasonable. WHEN THE CHECK CAME I WAS SHOCKED. They added things we did not order. For example: we ordered the seafood meal which comes with a mix of sea food and soup and salad. It literally says SALAD. In ENGLISH. The waiter asked me what kind of salad I wanted and I said Greek. The bill came and I saw they charged me EXTRA for a salad. I said what is this? It’s part of the meal and I showed him the menu as it says “salad”. The manager explained “salad” means “tahini” in Arabic. I said that was sneaky and not clear. Plus the waiter asked me what type of salad I wanted after I ordered the seafood meal. Also I was CHARGED FOR THE BREAD AND LEMONS that they put on the table. I didn’t ask for those items but they were brought out with my food. So I figured it was part of the meal. In the end we argued and the manager was not apologetic for the misunderstanding . He brought out stacks and receipts and said this is how we charge everyone. I said I don’t care how many other people you robbed today you won’t rob me. I took off the price of the bread and salad from my tab. He said it’s fine. And we walked out. I am on a 14 day trip. I’ve been to Cairo and Aswan and Luxor and I have not had any restaurant do this! I WOULD NEVER COME HERE AGAIN!!!!!More

My son and I were taken for a ride by the person taking our order. Seeing our indecision over the various wonderful options in the menu, the waiter suggested a mixed option so we could try a little bit of everything. We thought it was...a great idea as it’d allow to try different types of seafood. They literally brought food for at least 6 people, literally each of the seafood options as an entire dish while he gave the impression that it’d be mixed option apportioned appropriately for two people. When I complained, he said he could pack the left overs for takeaway- which is not what we wanted as heading to the airport. It was incredibly unpleasant. The table for two barely had space for the huge amount of food coming. Instead of one plate with the mixed seafood, each seafood was served in big plates that could have been enough for two. Four of these big dishes were brought over. On top of the two huge soups, salads, hummus, bread etc. They gave a discount from c USD44 to USD35, which was totally beside the point as the money is insignificant. But just the deceit of wilfully wanting to make a fool of us. Shame on you for taking advantage of tourists. The food was good though.More

Food is little pricy. However everything we ordered was delicious. We had local red sea fish Morga. It was perfectly seasoned and grilled. The rice, seafood platter, humus were all good. One downside was that only one person spoke English. No WiFi.

We usually visit this restaurant in last 10 years but this was the last time. Management can’t handle work in rush hours of weekends. We went inside and waited for an empty table, once people at one table finished we went there but some of...the staff said that we should inform them and stay at the line because this table for other people. Then they gave tables for all peoples which came after us but inform the staff that they need a table. If you make a system with informing the staff about your coming then you should ask about it all guests by yourself. Once we reach all waiting line we get a dirty table with all rubbish from previous visitors and instead of cleaning our table staff clean all tables around till my husband ask to clean table for us. Then manager personally ask what we want to eat without giving us a menu before. All waiters and other staff as cleaner a table did them job fast and good as it was possible during this situation. For them I can just say thank you. If managers can’t manage the place then maybe they need more attention from the owner because for last 2 years service really went down. Food as usual good but soup more watery than it was before so didn’t like to order it here any more.More

Prices are quite reasonable. A full reasonable sea food meal, including soup, would not exceed the Egyptian equivalent of $20.
