Dining & Restaurants In Hurghada

With its diverse expat population and the large pool of tourists, Hurghada has a good variety of restaurants.

If you’re traveling on a budget, Ad-Dahar and Sigala have dozens of inexpensive local-style restaurants while the resort strip eating scene tends to be dominated by the hotels with restaurants open to hotel guests and non-guests alike.


For affordable, fresh seafood with an Egyptian twist, Kastan is one of Hurghada’s top choices. We love their hearty and filling seafood soup and cheap shrimp curry.

It may not have the slick location of the restaurants along New Marina Rd but the quality and service here make it stick out from the crowd.

Shade Bar & Grill

If you’re pining for a steak look no further. Sprawl out on the terrace beanbags and order your red meat fix. For those too lazy to bar-hop, Shade conveniently turns into a popular bar late at night.

Red Sea II

Slap in the souq, Red Sea II has a wide selection of seafood, plus Egyptian and international dishes, all at decent prices. Choose from fairy-light-strewn rooftop seating or pavement dining, for those who want to people-watch.
