well, this is a restaurant for meat and fish specialties that is well known in Alexandria, I have tried it a couple of times and I always try mixed grill which is ok for me but not so perfect I think, the restaurant is overlooking the corniche street with a good view

But from upstairs the view over the corniche is great. I have seen the comments about bread and water. In all the restaurants we visit in Alexandria they always bring water,... More
