I left without any negotiations coz I went to Taba to have peace of mind and soul nothing else. I have been to... More

The place is just magical, amazing and breathtaking. We had lunch there and enjoyed the sunset. The offer slow food cooking so u better go there before being so hungry. U can enjoy the pool and the view. It is just amazing and extremely recommended for an amazing quality time.

Not our first visit to the Castle (says something), we live in Cairo. A little expensive but it is worth the several hour wait for the food - I recommend the lamb or beef, seafood doesn't seem to benefit in the same way from the slow-cook process.

The restaurant is well decorated and having a pool to enjoy while wating for a slow cooked meal is a great idea. But the food is only good for those who enjoy the english cuisine which was not me. Food is not for everyone.
