My wife and I have been here a few times and always enjoyed it. But we had not been for a while. It was a milestone birthday for my wife so what better place to go. And we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived till we left we were brilliantly looked after by staff who know just how to be attentive without being intrusive. And, as always, the food was superb. The standout for us was the lentils and rice which was absolutely magnificent. And then there were the vine leaves, which could not be faulted except that there were so many of them - though, is it possible to have too many vine leaves? The only thing that would cause us to rate the food less than perfect was the shank leash, which, while tasty enough, did not have the wow factor of the other courses. A fantastic night. We really must find a way to get back here more often.

Service by one of the ladies in the outside dining area was very rude. Didn’t get to pick up her name but she was indian with glasses. She packed up our food and cleared everything without even asking if we were finished or not even though we still had food left over. Besides that the food was amazing, just hoped the service would have been better.

I have been to El-Phoenician several times and the food is always impressive, fresh, very tasty and very well presented. Not a let down here! Typically the service is also just as good, however on this occasion it was to be honest poor. Lets say disorganised as best and sadly the Restaurant seems to have lost its identity as a finer dining experience. Not what I have come to expect of such a great restaurant.
