Went here to celebrate a friends birthday. I had mussels as a starter followed by sea bream and couldn't fault it. Absolutely delicious. Look forward to our next visit.

This was a first but not by any means last visit to this excellent new seafood restaurant, run by an Egyptian chef/owner and cooking deceptively simple, appetising tasty food in an open kitchen. The welcome is friendly from the moment of arrival and continues that...More
