Because Ramadan is one of those occasions that gather all friends and family in one place, we decided to offer you a list of places in Alexandria where you can have a lovely time at, enjoying Ramdan’s spirit and cheerful atmosphere while indulging their best Iftar, So7our, or even shisha and desserts.
- Sheesh Beesh
The perfect authentic Egyptian ambiance, starting from food to music and tawla. If you’re looking for a place where you can have everything you need at affordable prices, then Sheesh Beesh is where you should head to. It’s located in the Forum, next to Mirage mall. It features an extensive menu including Fattah, falafel and Koshari along with other main courses.

- Teatro Iskendria
Besides being a restaurant, Teatro Iskendria is also a performance space and music studio. So, you can simply enjoy a show while having your so7our; their last stand-up comedy show added a light spirit to Ramadan’s atmosphere. The design and atmosphere of the place will take you back to the old beautiful era.
- Tamara L bay
Enjoy Tamara’s sensational view of the sea, boats and Qaitbay citadel.
This authentic but trendy Lebanese Bistro is bringing Alexandria its genuine Lebanese flavor with the modern-day Lebanese atmosphere where you can feel the cool breeze outside and watch the small sailing boats racing in the marina. Tamara will open in few days!
- Al Day3a
Looking for a Lebanese menu mixed with an Egyptian Ramadan atmosphere? Al Day3a is the place for you. You can also find a lutenist adding sensational music to the cozy atmosphere. Their surreal terrace gives their shisha a different taste as well.

Pottery Café, Taboon, and Man’ousha Street—just to name a few! L-Passage is a popular choice for locals in Ramadan. This rather cosmopolitan plaza is going oriental this month, with Ramadan related theme. If you go there for iftar or suhour, make sure you pass by Nutopia for dessert. They have a Molten Nutella Konafa—our favorite Konafa version this year!
- The Beach Four Seasons Alexandria at San Stefano
Located on the Four Season’s private beach, The Beach Restaurant and Lounge, also known as Fish offers casual, outdoor iftar overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
