We came here because it was said to be the first veg restaurant in Cairo and were excited to try it out. There weren't really many veg options (we are vegan). We ordered and both asked for no cheese on our meals. Mine was fine but his was covered. They took it back and literally just scraped all the cheese... More

a longtime bestseller! aftercsome years i went there again....typical handwritten menue was still there and the quality of the food was as good as ever! soups are great.....a ginger carrot soup was just the right thing ti have as a starter. salad and chicken in lime sauce were great. menue is written in english.

Outdoor seating also, with good vegetarian entrees and breakfast selections. Favourites: English Breakfast, gazpacho, all soups and salads, blue cheese... More

Well portions are for babies but rich ones. Wrong check that included item paid in a separate check, when waiter is asked to modify it, he claimed that no one paid anything, without even checking before accusing me of being a liar or a bluff. Visa is not working without a pin code! i swear i don't have a pin... 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.
