This charming little diner is a local favorite and a treasured little gem overlooking the scenic Gouna Marina. Malu’s Deli is possibly the town’s coziest spot, boasting an extensive menu, complete with antipasti, hearty breakfast and dinner specials, charcuterie and tartes flambées.

Located within walking distance from some of Gouna’s most popular beaches, Malu’s Deli is the perfect spot for an after swim snack or midday pick-me-up thanks to their great coffee selection, which hits all the right notes.

Bringing the most popular Mediterranean cuisine to the shores of the Red Sea is Zia Amelia, Gouna’s favorite Italian restaurant. This quaintly charming Italian diner offers an authentic culinary experience that is true to Italy’s culture and traditions when it comes to food.

Famous for their irresistible pizza, homemade pasta and gnocchi, this family-owned restaurant, located in Downtown Gouna, is the perfect place to enjoy an intimate dinner with loved ones.


Serving up Indian delicacies on the shores of the Red Sea is Tandoor, the area’s best and most popular Indian restaurant. Consistently delivering on its fragrant promises, Tandoor, part of the Ali Pasha Hotel, has maintained a level of excellence that keeps its loyal diners coming back for more.

Famous for its authentic tandoori chicken, rich curries, and exceptionally good dal, Tandoor’s diverse menu covers the dietary spectrum for most.

Le Garage

Burgers are one of those foods that are so loved universally that it is easy to forget why we all enjoy them in the first place. Le Garage is one place you can rediscover your all-too-human and almost innate love of burgers.

The gourmet burger joint is a Mecca for patty lovers and for good reason. Its extensive meat selection, infinite fixins and house creations—like their ramen buns, truly scratch that umami itch after a long day at the beach.
