Finding a meal in Marsa Matruh is a culinary adventure, though not necessarily in a good way. There are few options, and choosing is a matter of picking something acceptable rather than heading toward something you really want. All the places listed below are pretty down-market, and you may want to restrict yourself to eating at the restaurants in the Beau Site and Riveria Palace or at the cluster of fast-food places around the Arous al Bahr Hotel on the Corniche (which includes Pizza Hut, Hardees, KFC, and McDonald's). If you never head into downtown, you're not going to be missing anything special, and you may save yourself some stomach problems. During the summer months, keep an eye on the pizza places that crop up at the Beau Site end of the Corniche.
