This was in my opinion the best sea food restaurant in Massawa - perhaps in all the country? The specialty is Yemeni BBQ fish dishes.
Being Yemeni Moslem, Sellam will not serve beer or wine. But the waiter will get it from elsewhere if you ask him to help you. It's not "off", it's the eqv. of BYO. A quick stint down the road and he'll be back with the required drinks. A "corkage fee" to the restaurant and waiter will be good.
It is located in the Turkic quarter of Massawa island, still partly in ruins because of the liberation struggle.
Favorite Dish: Yemeni spiced, hot fish grilled in a tandoor and served with nan-like breads.
Address: Sellam Restaurant, Massawa Island.
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Schmack in the middle of the island.
Price: less than US$10
