El Fardous

Top choice seafood in Al Quseir

A no-nonsense waterfront restaurant serving the best fish in Al Quseir, El Fardous has half a dozen tables, big windows onto the sea, a big cooler where you choose your fish, calamari or lobster, and some friendly waiters who will advise on what's best. No alcohol, but despite a 'no smoking' sign, the restaurant does serve shisha.

There's air-con for hot days, a TV for cold nights and tables out on the waterside when weather permits eating with your feet in the sand. Locals and Egyptians from elsewhere in the country eat here. Located across the road from the Faran Mosque.
