Sawa camp restaurant
delicious home-cooked local and international dishes
At Sawa Camp we cook all our meals using as much fresh local produce as possible.
Our chef sources local herbs, fruits and vegetables to use and our seafood is bought fresh every day from local fishermen, while the honey and olive oil are all provided by a nearby farm.
Our extensive menu features something for everyone. There is a range of Middle Eastern dishes (such as masaga, tagines, kofte and grills, bamia, and falafel) but if you feel like something more familiar we also have a variety of international meals available, from pizza and pasta to curries and stews. There is a large choice of healthy salads and, being beside the beach, we obviously have a delicious array of fish and other seafood meals. We are also able to serve some wonderful traditional Bedouin specialities.
There are plenty of breakfast options to choose, from a healthy fruit salad and yoghurt to hearty omelettes and pancakes and local breakfast foods (such as shakshuka and fuul).
As well as main meals, our menu has a number of great snack items that can be ordered if you’re only feeling peckish.
There are plenty of vegetarian options available.
We have a range of freshly-squeezed juices, soft drinks and hot drinks on the menu.
