Dining & Restaurants In Sharm El Sheikh

Packages never stray from their resort, as Sharm dishes up a glutton’s paradise of enticing restaurants spanning the culinary globe. You should prepare for a wallet washing, however, as eating out here is by no means cheap– still, the foodie manna of multiple cuisines on offer here makes splurging on a slap-up meal well worth the extra expense.


Lebanese is favor of the month in Sharm and this Levantine restaurant will lead you on a mouth-watering journey through the subtle flavors of the Middle East. forgo the main-course menu completely and concentrate on the mezze (starter-sized dishes), which are the heart of any Lebanese dining experience.

Choose a bundle of mezze such as batingan bi laban (aubergine in garlicky yogurt), makinek (spicy sausages) and loubieh (a green-bean stew) to share with delicious fresh-from-the-oven bread. The great-value mezze set menu is the best way to sample a full array of flavors.

Abou Al Sid

This branch of the famous Zamalek restaurant now flies the flag for Egyptian cuisine in Sharm, and is one of the few places in town where you can experience the full gamut of Egypt’s national dishes.

Specialties such as molokhiyya (stewed leaf soup), stuffed pigeon and kirsha (spicy lentil stew) are menu highlights. Don’t skip the mezze selection as it’s full of delightfully tasty and tangy surprises.

El-Masrien’s continued success is due to the fact it delivers succulent kebabs and kofta (mincemeat and spices grilled on a skewer) that perfectly hit the spot, without hiking its prices to try and compete with fancier Sharm restaurants. It’s an old-fashioned neighborhood place with tables pouring out onto the pavement.
