We, I and my wife, were visiting Egypt in a group tour. In Alexandria we had lunch at the San Giovanni Restaurant located in the Hotel San Giovanni. The restaurant has very good decor, multilevel seating and has waterfront views. The service was a bit slow, but that allowed us enough time to enjoy the view! We had fried fish... More

Excellent restaurant offers wonderful meals and is suitable for groups and service on the royal style. Great view of Stanly bridge and the Mediterranean sea.

We sat outside in the terrace. Good view of the bridge with a refreshing breeze. The service was not good, everything came after unusual delay and some of the dishes not as expected, were a disappointment. Otherwise, quality of food was tasty and the complimentary mango juice was delicious. Staff and service need better training to meet customer's needs.

Ok first, it takes you somewhere else, its a really a restaurant, the place is very elite so don't plan on going there wearing shorts or summer clothes, its a classy place where you can go enjoy a very tasteful dinner with very good music live from a piano. The waiters are really polite. My recommendation is sea food and... More

Can you imagine a place with actually no service.. It was a Ramadan night and there was a band singing in very bad and loud voice we asked for lemon mint juice.. They get us something disgusting to drink.. The place was dirty..

One of the most elite restaurants in Alexandria. For a snack or light meal try the coffee shop at the lower floor overlooking Stanley bay and its famous brigde. Lunch and dinner at the restaurant at hotel lobby. Food is delicious

This restaurant was one of the best in Alexandria in the past. Last time I've been there was 10 years ago. Last weekend I was there having dinner and I was shocked to find this huge decline in their level. The seafood soup was good but the Giovanni seafood rice was awful and disgusting and doesn't worth the even fifth... More
