Western Desert Oases Restaurants

Albabenshal Restaurant

  • Middle Eastern

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

The terrace of this roof-top hotel restaurant commands a view over Siwa's central square and catches the cool evening breeze beneath the floodlit ruins of Shali. The well-executed menu is primarily typical oasis cuisine but also includes a few unusual dishes, such as tagines (slow-cooked stews served with couscous), moza begui (braised lamb shank), and a delicious khodar masani (grilled vegetable platter). Backlit gypsum softly illuminates the outdoor dining

area, and a niche in the karshif walls serves as a romantic indoor dining room.
