We ate here on one of out last nights and wished we'd found it sooner.
Its situated on a corner in the centre of Naama so you can sit, dine and watch the world go by in an open air resturant. If the little street sellers try to approach you they are told to go away by the staff. It has low cushioned seats with rugs to put over your legs for the chilly evenings. The staff were lovely and attentive. They first gave us some complimentary bread (which was fresh and warm) and hummous.We both ordered starters which were lovely but be careful not fill up on that warm bread! It felt like we waited a while for mains (2 mixed grills) but when they finally did come the hot plate was packed with meat,chips and veg and was sizzling. It was georgeous and i ended up scoffing the whole thing despite filling up on bread! They dont seem to have an alcohol license as we saw people going out to get their own, but not a problem. Im a big desert girl but found myself not really eating them at the resturants as usually watery ice cream so i went to Baskin Robins across the road. We had sheisha afterwards and let our food digest until we felt we could walk again. When the bill came i had to double take, we had 2 starters, 2 mains, drinks and shisha and it came to around £20! it all tasted even nicer after that, well worth a visit and would return tommorow.

Having read trip advisor comments went to this restaurant with a 4 others. 1 egyptian and 3 british. Firstly found that the restaurant does not have a liquor license, so they send out for alcohol. Friends had mussels for starters - these were smaller than eurpoean cockles with many unopened. 3 ordered mixed sea food - with lobster, crab, mini mussels and sea bass. Crab was inedible, lobster very small and dry, mussels as I said and sea bass also very dry. Came to pay the bill and they do not accept credit cards. To cap it all a stomach upset for the first time in 12 days in Egypt where we have generally found the food to be very good including oil field canteens in the desert. But here no. Our egyptian colleague thought that it was the worst food he had tasted for a long time.

The menu was very extensive and all of it sounded delicious! I ordered the catch of the day which was whole seabass and it was cooked perfectly! There is a good atmosphere in the restaurant and the staff were very friendly. There were a few cats which wondered in and sat on the wall by our table for a bit, (most of the restaurants and bars are open air and don't have proper doors or walls) but I'm a cat lover so I quite enjoyed that!

The only negative is that they are not licensed so we couldn't order alcoholic drinks but a lot of people had bought their own in.
