We came here for a quick lunch and we’re happy we did! At first we were sitting outside but there were too many flies so we were moved inside. The menu had something for everyone and the waiter helped us to choose.

The restaurant is located in the Conrad Hotel and offers pleasant views on the bay and the pool area. The inside ambient is stylish and great for a dinner fir two. The restaurant offers also an outside area which however is not enough wind protected. We had one of the proposed degustation menus

Great place and ambivalence. Mohmoud was very patient and kind to tourists and guests dining at the establishment. Service is quick and place is really pretty. They also have a lunch special menu that has a wide assortment of dishes that you can pick. The portion sizes are very big. Food was good and filling. I loved the bread!
