“Nice Lebanese food in nice surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Tabula is a bit difficult to find, but it is a nice Lebanese restaurant, and perfect for dinner after having visited Egyptian Museum as it is very close.

Really liked the atmosphere in the restaurant, and food was good and arrived quickly. We also stayed for a Shisha and a second bottle of wine after our meal.

Recommended.

Also, they do serve alcohol with your meal, which several restaurants in Cairo doesn't do.

“I loved the atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

a very nice place to go for Lebanese food, but not the best in cairo, i totally love it's atmosphere and place, the prices are bit pricy for the portions but well worth a try, i enjoyed going there and adored their appetizers may be more than the main courses.

“Mediocre Lebanese food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at the four seasons nile plaza hotel. We were told this was one if the best lebanese restaurant in cairo. We were disappointed with the quality of the food and the lack oif ambience of the place. We are foodies and have also traveled to Lebanon so know what good and authentic Lebanese food tastes like. This was our first dining experience in Cairo so we are hoping for better dining experiences in this city.

“Get past the concrete block walls, the checkpoints and the burnt out cars for an excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

The approach to this restaurant, if you approach along the "wrong" street from Tahrir Square, is a little bit alarming. A concrete block wall has been built across the street and we had to climb through a hole knocked into an adjacent wall, go past a burnt-out car and also past a number of heavily armed soldiers to find the place. The reason for this is proximity to the US and British Embassies. Try and head along the Corniche and in through one of the open roads to avoid this.

It is well worth the visit though. The food and ambiance were excellent and it was also very good value. Alcohol is also available. I ordered three appetizers including spiced sausage, hummus with pine nuts and a grilled vegetable selection. This resulted in a substantial amount of food arriving in addition to the complimentary bread basket and amuse bouche. My partner's starter of lentil soup and main of mixed grill were equally substantial.

All in all a very good restaurant that I heartily recommend.
