It is also called Bar El Sheikh Ali :)

i love that place, has its own taste. Don't dare to try anything else but beer for a drink. But try their mixed seafood. Not expensive yet very fresh from the sea to your table. Salads are not recommended. Just go for as much beer as you could with seafood. A place worth visiting once at least, I... read more

I was there some years ago now and doing a bit of research before coming to Alexandria, I found that this mythical bar was a place to go. And it is well worth a trip there. The atmosphere is deeply rooted in the colonial times and with a flair of sailors bar. Plenty of nautical on walls and shelves add... More

Ok sounds like a long shot but hear me out. Firstly this is from the book not the film, the bar squence in the film was shot in Shepperton Studios i think. The book mentions that the bar is on a side street off Mehmet Ali square, now called Muhammed Ali square, as is this place. The only other details... More

What a great place. It is not big and quite easy to miss it but wonderful. We came here on our first night and the prawns, clams and squid were stunningly good. The only downside were the toilets. Basic at best. Water would help, as would paper. That aside we came back that's how good it was and such good... More

I had seen many recommendations to visit this place, but was not overly impressed. We were the only females in the place, there was no atmosphere, but the drinks were cheap and the calamari was nice.

The problem with bars in a Alex is there are hardly any left and if you find one be prepared to be taken advantage of. The decor is tops at Cap D'or...it has style and character. It gets packed in the evenings sometimes it is the "alternative lifestyle" hot spot. It can be lively. It is owned by Muslims who... More

Not a bad place, I can't account for the food but the service was friendly, and so it should be with the added service charge. We're here in an interesting.time for Egypt so not a lot of customers, but it has a charm to it.nonetheless.

A great place to sit at the bar over a cold beer after a day exploring Alex. Gets lively at night with calamari conoisseurs and prawn lovers. Service is friendly with a big team. If planning to drink white wine it might be an idea to ask them to refrigerate it in advance as my wife's bottle was not chilled... More
