This is a clean restaurant that serves very good food and nice cold beer. I ate there three times, which is recommendation enough. The service was a bit variable but it was never less than satisfactory (and sometimes was very good).

The restaurant is close to Tahiri square. The atmosphere, service and food were excellent. It was relatively inexpensive.

Felfella has been consistently good over the years, perhaps the best restaurant in downtown Cairo. The menu offers mainly middle eastern specialties with the odd western dish, always freshly prepared and served in good sized portions. Service is attentive, efficient and friendly. Don't miss the vanilla ice cream! Highly recommend!

This is a place that is as old as history. Located downtown Cairo on a small side street. As you go into this restaurant, you will find black& white pictures of presidents, royalties, singers being welcomed to Felfela. The restaurant serves true Egyptian food. There is nothing fancy about the restaurant expect the food that is tasty and really "true"... More

We taste delicious dishes from Egypt. Gorgeous falafel (tiamina), excelent kofta (grilled meat) and a typical dessert Osom Ali. The staff is From the old school. Less than 10 euros per person
