We hosted an after party for our engagement of around 50 people at mezcal last Friday. To be perfectly honest, we preferred to have it outdoors and contacted so many other places, none of which were even remotely as friendly as the staff at mezcal,...or as accommodating. Some asked for a guest list with an equal ratio of guys and girls, and insisted to be contacted via email only despite my complaints, some told us they’d call us back and never bothered, some gave us set menu options, most of which were extremely underwhelming given our budget which should’ve been sufficient for a much more tasteful menu. Mezcal on the other hand, managed to stick to our budget and offer all the best dishes on their menu, in plentiful quantities. Their respect for our needs, our concerns, the wellbeing of every guest, absolutely everything was managed with the utmost professionalism. The food was outstanding as usual, the service equally so. All the guests were equally very impressed with both. Even the DJ was perfection and stuck to exactly what we asked for. I’d also like to applaud mezcal for being one of the few places I’ve been to that managed to stick to the budget and not sneak in additional items to the bill because they know most of their guests wouldn’t notice by the end of the night. Mr Mohamed and Mr Mahmoud were always super friendly and super available to answer any calls, it is them that honestly led me to pick the venue. Just the fact that they were so flexible and easy to deal with, as opposed to the other places I called, made me decide to go with mezcal because of the peace of mind that came along with dealing with such wonderful people. Mr Mohamed also managed to arrange a more private setting for us before I even remembered to ask for it. Thank you Mezcal for everything. You were all truly wonderful. This is the first review I’ve ever written on trip advisor, because it REALLY is the first one worth writing. Expect to see us again very soon :)More

I didn’t like the smoking fog in that place at all, it was like my university night life, when you don’t care if your hare and cloth are full of cigarettes smell... and cuisine itself- no. I prefer to eat at home rather than here....At least my vegetarian dish wasn’t good enough to raise a wish to give it the second try. But there are a lot of people, for sure they know the mystery of this place better..More

Mezcal is a hidden Gem in Zamalek, Cairo, Egypt. Very good service and ambience. Attentive and friendly staff. If you like Mexican and Peruvian cuisines this is the place to be. Don’t forget to try their SpicyBiscus drink. Overall atmosphere is very good. Definitely recommending...it. Anyone can drink Mezcal but it takes intelligence to enjoy Mezcal. Note: Smart casual attire is preferable when visiting it.More

Was a long working Monday. Also was stressed with a loss of a university colleague. Giving condolences, was looking for a drink and light meal to unwind. 3 of us went in without a booking. Warm welcome, they remembered me visiting before. Beer was cold...& fresh, Guacamole was spicy as ordered. Beef tacos were delicious. Trio Ceviche was nice too . Chef came out to greet us and ask about the food and if we had comments. One minor comment is the high tables are a bit small not comfortable when you have a few drinks and plates at the same time. Price reasonable. Valet parking available else it would have been difficult to parkMore
