A feature of this place was the service, which was excellent- Big thank you to Alaa and the team. They went beyond with the typical service style and showed a warm reception alongside a sense of humour which only added to the great experience. I...would recommend trying the Egyptian dessert “om Ali”- it was the best thing I have tasted in Egypt by far. The wine was excellent. Will definitely be returning. Thanks Alaa!More

We visited the Sofra restaurant during a holiday to Makadi Bay and had a very enjoyable evening. We received a very warm welcome followed by exceptional service from a very friendly staff team. The food was exceptional and the staff should be commended for their...enthusiasm, appearance, friendliness and for the overall experience. Absolutely recommend this restaurant and it is no surprise that this is in the top 3 in the Hurghada area.More

An awesome experience from beginning to end with perfect service and wonderful food in an altogether fabulous restaurant. Thank you Alaa, Mina and Ahmed for your brilliant hospitality, welcoming smiles and the ad-hoc Arabic lessons along the way! Our meal was absolutely delicious and we’ll...definitely recommend you to everyone we meet on our stay in Hurghada.More

No, only from the machine in your hotel or via reception. Im sure you could do it privately in resort, but you would have to pay. It is not expensive, i would think around €30
