Pier 88 Almaza Bay


Authentic Mediterranean Vibes the could easily be considered on of the best restaurants in Sa7el.

Type of Cuisine: Italian, Mediterranean and modern with Michelin star Chef, Giorgio Diana.

Signature Dishes:

Penne Con Vodka E Salmone, Penne with Smoked Salmon, cream and vodka.

Tartar di Manzo

Linguine Giovanni

La Nostra Milanese (veal Milanese)

Giovanni’s Fashion Gin and Tonic with juniper and rose hips.


Dishes sampled:

Carpaccio di Salmone with olive oil and lime, so fresh and light.

The Greek Salad, when Italians make your Greek salad, it’s sure to have an vivacious flair!

Olive Oil Bread exclusive in Almaza. This bread was hot and tasty that we finished it the moment it was served, though it is big!

Rigatoni Alla Norma, with eggplant and ricotta cheese, and the perfect red sauce. Great ingredients.

For dessert, we sampled the Semifreddo and Tiramisu, both very impressive.


Other menu option that appealed:

Lobster Risotto and Porcini Risotto



We first fell in love with Pier 88 in Abu Tig Marina, Gouna, and then with the more opulent Cairo branch in the Imperial Boat in Zamalek. There is something in common between all the branches, and yet, each one retains its own unique atmosphere, serving its location perfectly.


The Mediterranean feel of the Sahel edition is spot on: authentic seaside, laid-back, coastal, and luxurious!


Situated on the sands of the Mediterranean in Almaza Bay, a large deck with a huge bar at the center is Pier 88’s signature style. Natural reed thatch is used as to shade from sunlight, keeping the space cool on those hot summer mornings. Draped fabric is used in other areas to bring in the indirect sunlight.


A variety of seating styles include big lounges, and dinner tables. Accents of blue, red and Mediterranean-inspired pillows pop.  Cocktails and cuisine are as exquisite as the surrounding scenery.


Top Tip: Worth the drive, spend the day there and dine watching the sunset.


Ambience: Chilled, charming and classy.
