We chose this restaurant on the back of the reviews on TA. I clicked on the iPhone app for the nearest restaurants to the hotel. The first suspiciously only had four excellent reviews from four first time posters, the second nearest was Alqahira. It was less than 100 metres from the hotel, We arrived about 8.15pm and there was bo... More

This was by far the best meal we had in Spain. The schwarma was perfect. The owner was so kind as well, helping us with finding a gift of arabic script, something that our son wanted and we discovered was hard to find. If you're in Toledo, don't miss Alqahira! You won't be disappointed.

My friend and I found the recommendation on TA and agree with the reviews. Mr Sayed ensured our experience was authentic and comfortable while we tried new delicious foods. We highly recommend this restaurant! Two Hot Olives - Orlando, Florida

Discover this little gem yourself. The small dishes are very tasteful and of perfect quality. Try the home made baklava and Egyptian coffee. This is absolutely a perfect place for diner.

One of the best meals we have had in years of travel and dining out. We were made to feel very welcome at the end of a long day of walking beautiful Toledo - all due to Mr. Sayed being friendly, and in helping us make choices from his small but tantalizing menu. The food was perfection - flavorful and... More

Best food I've had in Spain. It was prepared with love. The menu isn't a long one but the food sure is delicious. I had the best chicken shuwarma ever & I recommend the vine leaves. Great Service! Thanks

We had a very nice lunch in Toledo at the Alqahira Rincon de Oriente. We were given suggestions on how much to order and it worked perfectly. The restaurant is very quiet - a change from the hustle and bustle of the city, so this was quite welcome. Service was outstanding! Thank you!!

A nice change of pace from the rest of the restaurant experiences in Spain. Great service and food. The food was made with love and care. The decor was also note worthy. We will visit again.
