    Has anyone good (or bad) recommendations of places to eat in Hurghada.

    We ate in a few different places. The Hardrock Cafe was really good food, if a bit expensive compared to other places but the fajhita's where to die for.

    We also went to a lovely Italian restaurant called La Luna, near the Iraida offices. The prices where excellent and the steaks beautiful. I think it was 780 LE for a steak that was half a cow!! Worth every penny.

    Any other suggestions

  2. Bulls Restaurant
    Da Nanni Italina Restaurant which is best pizza in town
    Pita Sphinx
    Fish House

    I cant remember the name but we had lovely meals in the Italian in Sekala ( I think ). It was very near to KFC and you went down a few stairs to enter the restaurant. Very cheap and fab food with excellent service.

    The girls liked Hard Rock. We had a good fish meal in the Old part but again cant remember name but it was on the end of a street ( police guards outside in the street ) and you went upstairs.
    We had a huge platter of lobster and huge prawns ( we had medium and the biggest I had ever seen ) salad with various dips, bread chips and 8 soft drinks and came to well under £20 ( kids only ate the chips and we had to then walk to Mc D' s )
    George will prob know where I mean.
  4. I think the Italina is Sbaro and fsh is Joker or Mina

    Hi George - yes the fish was one of those but the Italian was not that one as that is a well known chain with Italian flag and it defo wasnt that.

    St Georges 50% discount membership card

    Hi all Pete and Tracey at the St Georges bar in the Jasmine centre will give residents all a membership card that entitles us to 50% off all food and drink. Just take in your passport that shows your residents visa to obtain your card.
    Well worth it. Can see a few of us taking advantage of half proce beer lol.

    Hi Alison, Should we get a residence visa? And how long does it last for. We don't know about these things. What is the best way to get one.
    Cheers Dawn -x-

    Hi Dawn I had to get a multi entry visa and residents visa to get the POA for my lawyer. I got mine at El Tor purely because we where out there at the time and it is cheaper than doing it in the UK. There are details of how to do this in the Sierra thread as a couple of people have recently got all their paperwork in London. The multi entry visa lasts 6m and the residents visa lasts for 12m. Now I have got the POA there is no need for me to renew them unless I wont to. I can still use my apartment without them as in Sharm you do not need a visa if you do not travel outside Sinai unlike resorts such as Hurghada. Check out Zeiads Legal thread as to where you stand with POA etc as Sharm differs from Hurghada as we are lease and not freehold.

    Sahl Hasheesh, Palm Beach Piazza & Fantinis

    Hi Folks

    We have just returned from our little place in paradise in Palm Beach Piazza
    and had a fabulous time - we cannot wait to get back out there in
    early August! Sahl Hasheesh is certainly starting to take shape and
    will be absolutely amazing when it's finished.

    We would just like to tell you about the Italian Restaurant at Palm Beach called Fantinis - it is truly fantastic! Mick and Shirley, together with their
    wonderful staff, have done a fabulous job in creating a superb, high
    quality restaurant with a warm and inviting ambience. They even
    provide room service to Palm Beach apartments - something which is
    very useful if you don't feel like moving out of your apartment for
    whatever reason. For those visiting Sahl Hasheesh or even just
    staying in Hurghada, PLEASE PLEASE go and have a meal or a drink
    there so you can experience for yourselves how wonderful Fantinis is.
    We are sure you will get a very warm welcome from Mick and Shirley and
    their lovely staff.
