Whether you are a tourist or a resident you have to go to Andrea, it's one of the oldest restaurants in Cairo. It serve mainly grilled food however there are also have vegetarian options.
Mainly Egyptian plates like the vine leaves, sambousak, and very nice fries. There bread is freshly baked by the entrance of the restaurant. The whole atmosphere brings old memories as I used to go with my family when I was a kid, the atmosphere is still the same; same tables cloth colour, same chairs and same waiters uniform besides food is delicious as it always used to be. It's a perfect place for families, open air and there is a small playing area and a donkey that take the kids for small rounds! I recommend the grilled boneless chicken, chicken liver, sambousak and vine leaves above all the bread which is amazing.
If you are going after sunset I strongly suggest taking a jacket as it gets v cold and any anti Mosquitos cream or spray, there is a v good spray that you can get from the pharmacy called OFF. Mosquitos turn wild after sunset!
