Sinai Star (Negmet Seena) Sea Food Restaurant

Sinai Star (Negmet Seena) Sea Food Restaurant

Sinai Star (Negmet Seena) is situated in the old town. The food is simple but good, famous for their Sea Food Platter (fish, prawns, squid and lobster mainly) which is grilled or fried served with plenty of pita bread, houmous and rice. The kind of reputation Sinai Star enjoys at Sharm el-Sheikh is only because of the fresh sea food it serves. You can find a long snaky queue outside the restaurant from as early as 17: 30 hours in the evening. For seafood dishes and the catch of the day, both the Abou Hamada and Sinai Star restaurants come highly recommended, while El-Masrien is known for its tasty kofta (spicy skewered mincemeat balls). Either grilled or fried pita bread , humous, and rice comes as accompaniments. No menus, no gimmicks, just quality seafood in a very basic warehouse setting. More exotic is El Fanar, perched atop a cliff in Ras Umm Sid, a unique eatery serving good Italian fare and fresh seafood.


The market area in Old Sharm is popular for its abundance of seafood restaurants and cheap prices. Most popular are Safsafa Restaurant, Sinai Star seafood and Fernando's Italian restaurant. You should keep in mind that the restaurants in Old Sharm do not sell alcohol - although you can take your own with you. For seafood dishes and the catch of the day, both the Abou Hamada and Sinai Star restaurants come highly recommended, while El-Masrien is known for its tasty kofta (spicy skewered mincemeat balls).

Seafood here is ultra-fresh and prepared exactly to your liking — even if the item isn’t on the menu.
