Probably the worst value for money restaurant in Zamalek - Mezzes were not really good - Stella comes in can (for 50LE, I'd expect glass bottle) -... More

The crowd wasn't that good. Mostly with "old" people. Better to have the corner table and chill. They have good fried calamari and free chips. George, the staff, is really nice.

This is a wonderful small restaurant. Good food, good service, reasonable prices. Perfect for an intimate dinner for two during the early evening, and perfect for a small group of friend later.

This is the number one restaurant in Cairo. Food and drinks are of excellent quality. You can also bring your own bottle with you, provided you pay the corkage. Should be on every visitors list.

Small place with good food and good music. Not ur expected menu at such a small pub/bar however u'll def enjoy the few unusual items on the menu. Music is great...and quite random (which i like)...a place to have on ur to-do list when u visit Cairo. Enjoy!
