Whenever we're in Cairo & even though we live in city of 6 October we make our journey to Fish Market in Giza for the best salads, fish soup & a huge variety of fish & seafood grilled & fried. The service is great & the bread is baked in house so don't skip that either. Well worth the visit!

A wonderful family gathering became very exceptional with the wonderful sea food. The soup, appetizers, shrimps , wide variety of fish grilled and fried, the rice and green soup with shrimps are more than perfect. Moreover, the Nile view is amazing. I really do recommend this restaurant.

A peaceful lunch with river view and excellent fresh fish. This is an ideal spot for a bit of a break from the noise and traffic of Cairo. The service was very good and the food excellent. A great range of seafood to choose from.
