Smokey, ok atmosphere & good food

The usual problem with bars in Cairo: the cigarettes smoke compounded by very bad ventilation. I must admit upstairs is much better ventilated than downstairs, so always book a table upstairs. Atmosphere is ok, a bit on the cheap side. Food is good & has a good variety of appetizers. With not many... read more

I went to L'Aubergine late evening with Egyptian friends to have a drink. It was a nice place with a friendly atmosphere. The prices was fair. I had a lot of fun and will for sure visit again.

L'Aubergin has been known for quite some time now, they are one of the few place you can go out for a drink in Heliopolis. They serve good food and local drink from Egypt.

First time been there but from the first step in and you are treated with lots of courtesy and smiley faces. Cosy atmosphere, quick service and delicious finger food "Mezzah"... Music nice not loud... and reasonable prices.

A delicious potato croquette (bomba) filled with smoked salmon for a starter 20 LE and the gnocchi with blue cheese sauce for main 40LE, both were delicious. A stella beer cost 30LE and there was a... More
