  • Top ChoiceRestaurants in El Gouna

    Zia Amelia

    El Gouna's cutest restaurant is rustic done right with a charmingly intimate interior and, weather permitting, an outdoor-dining area shaded by a vine-covered trellis. The menu is home-style Italian with generous portions of lasagne, crisp pizza, homemade pasta and seafood. Leave room for dessert because the tiramisu is decidedly wicked. There's live music most Wednesdays. Booking essential. The pasta and pizza menus, and the delicious desserts, ensure that this place will be popular with the whole family.

  • Top ChoiceRestaurants in Marsa Alam

    Dolce e Salato

    The best Italian food in Marsa Alam, prepared by Mara from Rome. Pizzas are shortcrust, made using extra virgin olive oil, and range from a simple Margherita to pepperoni, mozzarella and tomato. The pastas and salads are equally good, and there are burgers and sandwiches as well. Coffee is Italian-style, as are desserts, including homemade biscuits. Beach delivery available.

    White Elephant

    This is the real deal, Thai food prepared by a Thai chef. So if you want a spicy and zingy Thai feast, let the waiter know you can handle the heat and White Elephant won't scrimp on the spice. Tom yum (hot and sour Thai soup) is excellent, as are most dishes with fresh fish from the market. The restaurant also has branches in El Gouna.

    Star Fish

    An extremely popular fish restaurant on the main Sigala drag. You can choose fish from the display, or opt for prawns (grilled, with pasta, or deep-fried) and an excellent fish soup. Or you could go for the blow-out special of soup, lobster, shrimp, fish fillet, calamari and kofta (spiced mincemeat grilled on a skewer), with rice and salad.

    Upstairs

    A fine-dining experience for the carnivore in your life, Upstairs (which confusingly is not upstairs) has a menu packed to the rafters with French-influenced meat dishes. The signature dish is a rather delicious slow-cooked camel in a yellow curry sauce, but there's plenty of steak, chicken, duck, seafood and other delights if you're not feeling adventurous, and vegetarian options too.

    Moby Dick

    People rave about Moby Dick's succulent steaks, but the restaurant also serves pasta and seafood and does a fine line in crispy, fresh salads. And there's the curiosity of camel steak with mushroom or pepper sauce. This is a consistently popular place with a really good vibe and helpful, chatty staff. Drinks are also well-priced.

    Nubian Cafe

    In a town where international food rules, it's nice to see a restaurant taking a stand for Egyptian cuisine. The Nubian Cafe does flavoursome tagens (stews cooked in a deep clay pot); good mezze, including a scrumptious baba ganoush (purée of grilled aubergines); and meaty grills. There's plenty for vegetarians to sink their teeth into, too.
