Having not eaten meat for the previous week, I certainly found the right restaurant to satisfy my cravings! My rib-eye steak was served rare, as requested, and was almost a meal in itself.

We always visit this restaurant every time we stay in El Gouna as we find it great value for money and the food is always at a great standard. The staff are very friendly and we look forward to our next visit.

Looking for authentic Egyptian cuisine? Look no further than Kan Zaman. A fantastic little restaurant, with pavement tables, an AC interior, and an outside seating with a view across the square under the refreshing breeze of a couple of ceiling fans. You are always greeted with a warm welcome and shown to a beautiful decorated table. Kan Zaman is not only known around El Gouna for its great tasting Egyptian cuisine and great value, it is also known for their amazing customer service. You are shown a selection of both Egyptian favourites and some simpler options with generous portions whatever you choose. Fear not if you don’t understand the menu, the staff are all very experienced in dealing with customers who don’t quite know what to choose and have been proven to provide excellent advice on their dishes.
