Fantastic find, we were amazed by the quality and the presentation of the dishes, as well as the restaurant decor. We ate an incredibly tasty kebab and some vine-leaves wraps (I forgot what was inside but it was really good) drank some sweet,alcohol free wine and shared a honey dessert. The low lights, candles and general romantic atmosphere set the... More

Truly exceptional food (albeit in small portions) and outstanding service offered by Fathi Sayed, the owner. Every dish was accompanied by an explanation on how it should be enjoyed. It was a pleasure to sip some Arabic Coffee while Fathi explained in details how it is made and how it differs from other types of coffee.

We love Arabic food but this isn't just a restaurant! The place is original, the service is incredible! Everything we ordered was wonderful! Full of flavors and delights! Really there is nothing that tastes bad on this menu! Everything is fresh and tasteful! I would definitively love to come here again some day!

Very nice restaurant and tea bar. The place is small and busy so it is best to call ahead. Everything we had was very fresh and delicious! Prices were good but the portions are small. Spent 47€ on two people.

My wife, daughter and I happened upon this restaurant back in the summer of 2012, while wandering the alleyways of old Toledo. We entered not knowing what to expect, especially given some of the mis-choices we previously encountered in Madrid and Barcelona (tourist-oriented bad food and bad service)... Upon entering, we were pleasantly surprised by the tasteful regional decor, the... More

We look for Middle Eastern food whenever we are somewhere that might have good Middle Eastern food, so it was on our list of things to look for in Toledo. This little place has the usual things on the menu, and we ordered one thing we hadn't heard of before, but out order became mistaken and we didn't get it.... More

Went here based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. Our host was most gracious and gave great advice on how best to enjoy the dishes we had chosen, and made an excellent recommendation of iced rooibos and cinnamon tea. My wife and I shared the felafel and the mince in bread (forgotten its name unfortunately). The accompanying dips are... More

From the decoration to the short but tasty menu, through the careful service and reasonable prices, the Alqahira stands up as an oriental corner in Toledo.

We ate here during our trip to Toledo. We like middle eastern food, it was near our hotel, it has good reviews and we were looking forward to it. However, although the food was okay, I am surprised by the enthusiasm reflected in the majority of these reviews. I accept that the menu is small, but the portion sizes are... More

We trust tripadvisor for the ratings given to this place and aware of the price. But, too little choice of food and small portion were just too much. It has a nice setting and good food though. Just, not worth it.
