quiet place, good food

We went there for a dinner. It's Egyptian restaurant with Arabic decor with some weird additions like American bow for example. The menu is very short but nothing wrong with this. Food was fresh and very tasteful. The staff was super polite. Eventually we stayed for ice cream and piece of cake.

Great atmosphere (we sat in the front room). The service was impeccable, attentive, but not pushy. Food was very authentic, and delicious. Price was good.

A sensibly small menu offers some intriguing meals. Attentive service and good food. Would have visited more often, but evening opening limited in February.

Phew! Me and wife were unsure if we could find a halal kebab store when we set out from our hotel at 7pm on a friday night. Fortunately these guys opened at 730pm! Had a fruit salad, 2 sharwarma, and mint teas for around 30Euros. good tasting although price is on the high side

To put it in a nutshell: The service was incredible - in spite of the language barrier. The food is in fact a bit pricey, but the mayonnaise mixed with caramel alone, made the price just. Not to mention the teas...

Great restaurant located very close to the Cathedral. The host was very polite and attentive. I have forgotten the names of the things we had ordered but I vividly recall each and every one of them being sumptuous. The food felt authentic and unpretentious. Truly a wonderful dining experience!

Read the ratings so thought I'd try it. Unfortunately it was early by Spanish time 19:30 and I'm on my own for a few days. I was the only one there. The menu is in Spanish and English but the Moroccn waiter speaks Spanish, French and Arabic, so out came some school boy French. There were 2 salads on offer... More

We came here as the restaurant we had booked in was closed - we were pleased it was because we experienced impeccable service and exquisite food. Fathi Sayed explained what ingredients were in each dish and how it should be eaten. A really great experience.

The service at Alqahira was superb! The food was beautifully presented and very delicious. Most exciting for me was that I was able to get one of my favorite drinks, "lemon with mint". The last time I was able to get it was during a visit to Jordan in 2012. At Alqahira, it is made with limes instead of lemons,... More

Restaurants' atmosphere is very nice and authentic. Arabic food is excellent! If you want to visit this restaurant on evening during busy season, surely you need to book the table in advance
