Alexandria Restaurant Guide

In Alexandria, Egypt, dining out can range from stand-up sandwich bars to luxurious five-course meals at a swanky hotel restaurant. Here are a few notable restaurant favorites from those who have traveled to Alexandria and are worth checking out:

Fish Market visitors choose their meal from an ice-bed which displays seafood which is fresh caught daily. Once you've made your selection and have discussed the desired preparation of your meal with the chef, you retreat to your table to enjoy copious amounts of extras such as hummus, chickpea and seafood salads, cheeses and a variety of fresh breads – all while you take in an unforgettable view of the Mediterranean. So, if you want to enjoy a delicious seafood meal in the most upscale fish restaurant in Alexandria, the Fish Market is the place. The hours are from noon - 2 AM daily. Prices range from $16 - $27 USD for a full meal (including appetizers, side salads, and bread). The Fish Market is 4.5 miles from the cruise port – approximately 20 minutes by taxi and will cost roughly $15 USD (or you can walk the same distance in 30 - 40 minutes). If you choose a taxi, attempt to negotiate the price of the trip before getting in - and even then there's a good chance the price will have edged upward by the time you arrive at your destination. Reservations at the Fish Market are recommended. Their telephone number is 03-4805114.
 
Mohammed Ahmed has the reputation as the King of Foul and Falafel and is considered a 'not to be missed' restaurant by those who have eaten here. When a local place stays perpetually packed with local folks, you know they're doing something right. At super reasonable prices, the Mohammed Ahmed serves great 'standard' Egyptian dishes including: foul, fresh falafel bites, mezze, salads such as tahini, banga (beetroot) or pickles and an outstanding lentil soup - all accompanied by the usual bread and humus. Prices are around 8 - $10 USD per meal. Mohammed Ahmed, is about 2 miles (approximately 10 minutes) and a cab ride from the cruise port to the restaurant will cost roughly $20USD. Phone them at 03-4873576.
