A restaurant guide to Egypt’s Mediterranean coast

Head for the balmy climes of Egypt’s Mediterranean coast armed with our handy guide

When people think of holidaying in Egypt they might think of the Red Sea Riviera on the east coast south of Suez, in resorts such as Sharm el-Sheikh. Yet the central north coast from Cairo and the mouth of the Nile to Alexandria, El Alamein and beyond, borders the Mediterranean and has a balmier climate than the sizzling south.

The area has become popular with wealthy Cairo residents escaping to the cooler shores, and with visitors from Europe wanting a Mediterranean holiday with a difference.

Those looking for a beach holiday with Mediterranean-style restaurants and nightlife will find a host of venues, and for those preferring fine dining at upscale resorts and hotels, there is plenty of choice.

Here the MCC team has put together a list of the best places on the North-east coast for dining and relaxing.
