August 7, 2017 Milan Banda

Come play in El Gouna where the turquoise Red Sea sparkles. With resorts, spas and an 18-hole golf course, El Gouna lets you unwind under the sun. Book an excursion by land or sea—quad bikes are a popular way for the adventurous to see the desert. By night, trendy bars and the open-air disco welcome you to stay up late. (Editor's note: Our list was compiled before political unrest prompted many countries to issue travel warnings for Egypt. If you're currently planning a trip to Egypt, please consider the risks and monitor your government's travel alerts.)

Maritim Restaurant

In the scenic Abu Tig marina you can sit and have a breakfast, lunch or dinner and watch the people or the million dollar yachts pass by. Menu is typical international seafood with both vegetarian and other options available. New for January 2012 is the Volcanic Rock Grill where you grill your own dish at the table (available from 6pm)

We visited Maritime with friends for a late breakfast early in the new year. We ordered the smoked salmon scrambled eggs with hollandaise and a traditional British breakfast with lattes. The food arrived quite quickly and was accompanied by croissants, rolls and jam/honey etc. The scrambled eggs were cooked well, although the fried eggs slightly over cooked. Overall quite a good breakfast with good service.

Le Garage - Gourmet Burger

Le garage is a typical Burger Restaurant , but not a fast food restaurant, its located at the Marina of el gouna, nice Terrace with a fantastic view on the water. We serve a big variation of around 22 burgers, also for vegetarians, very nice salads, soups and filet steaks. Our daily freshly baked cakes are great too. The friendly waiters and chefs are all wearing a garage overall, suitable to the name "le garage" Please don't forget to write a comment on the restaurant walls. Free WLAN for all guests

Reviewed By Samehww

We were not welcomed very friendly, I honestly thought I wasn’t supposed to be there or visited at closing hours (5pm). We ordered onions rings (90 LE) which were average and an Avocado Burger (170 LE) which was very gross. The avocados were probably bad and it was soggy and not Gouna quality or worth the money. Also ordered a Raspberry Mojito (140 LE) which again was below average. Our servers left the plates in front of us for the longest time, even though there was only one other table occupied, and when we finally called him over and told him the food wasn’t good, his response was “you’re kidding, right?”
The only good thing I thought was that the food came out fast, but even that was somewhat disappointing since the burger came just a few seconds after the appetizer...
Not impressed, rather very disappointed

Excellent, traditional French cuisine. Prices are higher than other restaurants in El Gouna but still reasonable.
Next step is investing in a good wine menu.

Jobo's Sports Bar & Restaurant

The only sportsbar in town with typical barfood and BBQ. Watch your favorite sports on request.

Reviewed By Georgia L

I went to Jobo's many times during my holiday and each time was better than the last. With it being winter there were fluffy blankets for those who felt the cold and lots of TVs for the football. The drinks were delicious, cocktails and smoothies included and the food was so filling. I wanted more but I just couldn't fit it in! The staff were friendly and aftret my first visit always made sure I had a fluffy blanket (as I loved them) and I was able to chat casually with them about my own likes (like cats).
When our taxi was delayed picking us up (because of security at El Gouna entrance) the first place that came to mind to wait - Jobo's!
When I come back in the summer this is m go to place for the football!

Reviewed By gouniedavid - El Gouna, Egypt

Since its opening in 2017, we have eaten at The Grill many times. Each time we have been met with friendly, helpful, efficient staff. The food has always been tasty, plentiful and served hot (not always the case in a
lot of restaurants). A bonus is that they serve the cheapest beer in town!!
Overall, a great dining experience, a 'must visit' if you are in El Gouna.

This restaurant was connected to our Hotel The Three Corners, we ate here twice but wished we had eaten here more often, the food was outstanding, the service was above and beyond and the place was lovely, can't wait to visit again next year.
This chef should be awarded but we are sure will have a very promising future.
