Recently opened in August an exciting addition to El Gouna’s dining and social scene, offering sublime cuisine with phenomenal views over the Marina
Type of cuisine: Aesthetically pleasing European style dishes offer a choice which includes Italian, French, Spanish and English.
Signature Dishes & Dishes Sampled
Although there are various main dishes, with new additions currently being created, Café Jeandeau offers a wide array of tasting dishes and ‘must try’ items include Octopus and a Mayonnaise and French Beef Tartare.
We were very warmly greeted by the owner Riccardo accompanied by his grandson Alexander. We started our evening with a Campari/Gin cocktail served in a margarita glass. When ordering cocktails from the menu in Café Jeandeau you are served with a complimentary selection of tasting options which on our visit included Quiche, Mozzarella Balls, Fried Onion and Potato Balls, Pasta in Breadcrumbs and Spanish Tortilla served with classic Thousand Island dressing.
Being guided by Riccardo we were served according to our preference of either meat or fish and enjoyed Tuna and Shrimp Tartare, which melted in the mouth. Jenevieve Veal in Jar – a unique concept which beautifully brought together mouth-watering meat with caramelized onions and potato, and Rainbow Chicken rolled with Parmesan and served with sautéed potatoes. We also enjoyed Grouper fish served with a fresh tomato topping. Fresh bread baked in-house accompanied the wonderful array of food before us. A tantalizing Chocolate Parfait – a wonderful blend of dark chocolate and orange topped served with fresh orange slices – concluded our delicious dining experience.
Other Menu Options that Appealed & Beverages Available
New dishes are in the process of being added to the appealing menu, we cannot wait to revisit Café Jeandeau in order to sample these new additions.
Café Jeandeau has an exciting range of beverages geared to suit all tastes. The cocktail menu in particular is extensive.
Décor & Ambience
Café Jeandeau has undergone an extensive programme of refurbishment and the design lends itself to being welcoming both in the summer and winter months. Guests can enjoy the beautifully designed internal restaurant or relax and take in the stunning panoramic views of Abu Tig Marina. There is a separate bar area to enjoy drinks and we particularly liked the fact that the kitchen has been designed to be visible to guests allowing you to view the Chef and his team preparing their culinary delights. Great care and thought has gone in to the opening of Café Jeandeau and staff training has been a major consideration. It was pleasant to be served by both male and female team members whose knowledge of languages seemed impeccable. They also took great pride in presenting our food and drinks and giving us detailed descriptions of the same.
With plans for a Piano Bar in the near future, Café Jeandeau will stand out in El Gouna as being not only a unique dining experience, but with subtle entertainment to suit a discerning clientele.
Price range: With the exceptional quality of both the food and beverages on offer, we considered this to be incredibly good value for money.
