My wife and I were on family visit to cairo for two weeks. My wife and I dined at the Fish Market Restautant in Giza for the first time. It is part of a fixed floating boat. You cross to it via a wide and elegant pass-rail. You first are seen by a common reception and the Fish Market is... More

Read many reviews and I decided to go there since I love fresh fish and was told this is one of the best places in Cairo. Despite a minor glitch such as having a bit of a clueless and untrained waiter, the rest of the staff seemed good. We did manage to get a better waiter that knew what he... More

The place was busy and got busier as the sat. This had an affect on the staff, one manager shouting at the waiting staff. Salads were good, four of the five main dishes were delivered at the same time, the fifth, despite many questions as to where the dish was, did not arrive until well after the four had finished....

Mid week, early afternoon the restaurant was empty when we arrived. Friendly and efficient service, best tahina and toomaya salads we've had in a while, scooped up with freshly baked bread, followed by perfectly cooked fried sole and baked mullet. The views of the Nile and its varied traffic whiles away the time whilst relaxing and eating.

Nice Location overlooking the Nile. A tied selections of frozen seafood. Staff trained to deal better with foreigners and Arab and mistreat Egyptians. Prices are high comparing with quality and quantity. Fried Items are horrible.
