The Fish Market Review

On the upper deck of a boat permanently moored on the west bank of the Nile, the scene here is decidedly simple: there's no menu, just a display of unbelievably 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.

    The Fish Market Review

    Its just one of the best fish resturant that I ever seen. Fresh, warm, elegant, very clean.

    No comparison with Alexandria

    Unwelcoming, cold, very poor service and nothing on the bill was the same price as the menu - some items more than double!
    Bread and water came in 30 mins everything else much longer.
    The grouper ordered only to be grilled came under a strong sauce which completely obliterated any taste of the fish.
    We are sad, skint, and bitterly disappointed.
