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

Simple menu, nice food, great location just off the Cathedral, excellent service. Food could be a little bit spicier for my taste.

This restaurant is Muslim owned so they don't serve alcohol. We tasted several items on the menu and they were all excellent. However the servings are not very large. That allows you to sample the food. The price is a bit steep for what you get, but since you're not paying for alcohol, it all works out in the end.... More

A small and intimate restaurant done out in calm, tasteful way. The food is beautifully presented - items on the menu are standard for this type of cuisine, but made to feel special by the addition of extra dips and a thoughtful approach to the overall experience. It's not cheap - you're paying a fair bit extra for small-ish portions... More

We also based our visit off of TA recommendations and were happy we did. The smallest details are considered here, with quality being the first concern, as the owner admitted. We had the falafel and ground beef with Arab bread, two delicious teas (one cinnamon and orange, the other mint and lime - both refreshing) and the homemade date ice... More
