We ate at Fares on Sunday 25 March, it was pretty crowded but we found a table without reservation. We had fried clams, lobster soup, shrimp tajine, squid fajita
and something to drink. Included in our dishes we had the typical egyptian bread and five different types of dressing, I remember only 2 of them, hummus and the pink crab one. How delicious everything was! In particular I loved my shrimp tajine, so savoury and tasty, just a bit spicy, crunchy shrimps. Bread was fragrant, soft and warm, the best ever tried during my holiday in Sharm. Dressings were simply super. Lobster soup was also surprisingly good. On the contrary, I wasn't totally convinced by the squid fajita, tasting somehow boring after all. The fish fry wasn't anything special either, squids were a bit chewy. The service was fast and smart. Overall our dinner was fantastic, and cheap too (we spend around euro 25). Finally I adored the lively atmosphere of this place, in the heart of the Old Market. You have to visit it!

It us a good fish restaurant but not up to the great expectations of its reputation... it is very commercial and though staff is good.... would not recommend if you really want a good fish meal .... it is expensive compared to the quality of meal offered ...

The Genena mall where it is located has a good shopping area and a nice show that starts every night at 9 but yoh better reserve once you arrive ... the waiters at Fares are helpful and serve for you...

I would not recommend Fares if you want a good tasty meal .... especially if you are taking a group or family with you ...

Well the grilled fish I ordered was magnificent. The calamari and shrimp salad was exquisite. But that's all the positive things in this place.
I say place because this shouldn't be called a restaurant.
1. It is very dirty.
2. Waiters were in chaos, shouting and moving around like crazy and not delivering orders until many reminders are set.
3. Cats filled the place and no body bothered by them.
4. Apetizers are terrible.
5. Staff asking bluntly for tips even when one use the toilette.

I have no idea why it is considered one of the best fish restaurants in Sharm.
Sad.
