Fodor's Review

This restaurant is on the upper deck of a boat permanently moored on the west bank of the Nile. The scene is decidedly simple: there's no menu, just a display of fresh fish, shrimp, crabs, calamari, and shellfish on ice. Pick what appeals, pay by weight, and the kitchen will prepare it however you like, with a slew of Middle Eastern salads on the side. The delicious bread is baked on the premises in a baladi (country) oven.
