Old and vintage bar, they have a very decent and funny bartender that you would enjoy talking to. They have a must try delicious oysters, although I found a rotten piece in my order, however, they apologised it wouldn't stop me from ordering it again.

Reminiscent of a Spanish tapas bar from the 1950s, this lovely bar is steeped in atmosphere. Old French music plays softly in the background. Antiques and old photos on the walls. Sip an ice cold Stella beer whilst sitting at the marble topped bar, and...More

i love that place, has its own taste. Don't dare to try anything else but beer for a drink. But try their mixed seafood. Not expensive yet very fresh from the sea to your table. Salads are not recommended. Just go for as much beer...More

I was there some years ago now and doing a bit of research before coming to Alexandria, I found that this mythical bar was a place to go. And it is well worth a trip there. The atmosphere is deeply rooted in the colonial times...More
