Top choice seafood in Alexandria

Pronounced ‘Adora’, this is one of Alexandria’s most authentic fish restaurants, with food served at simple tables in a narrow street. Pick your fish (priced per kilo) from a huge ice-packed selection, usually including sea bass, red and grey mullet, bluefish, sole, squid, crab and prawns. A selection of mezze is served with all orders (don’t hope for a menu).

Most fish costs LE70 to LE190 per kg, prawns LE400 per kg. Kadoura has an air-conditioned (though less atmospheric) branch along the Corniche.
