Spectra is a trusted chain of restaurants with unique menu items, big portions, nice taste, good service and reasonable prices. I recommend Mohandessin and Mokattam branches. Very suitable for friends, groups, families and couples.

Spectra is a chain and all its restaurants are large and clean. The choice of food they serve is wide and the amounts are much more than you can eat. The service is good and quick

As a team work of Spectra Restaurant & Café, we aim at promoting the foodstuff industry through the branches we establish,and through the new dishes.we introduce that suit the Egyptian taste and integrate between different cultures, by merging different Oriental and western recipes to make new dishes that are a fusion of the Eastern and the Western tastes with the overwhelming Egyptian touch.This is achieved by utilizing the expertise of Spectra's crew and by selecting the best products in the market; either the Egyptian-made ones or the ones that are imported especially for Spectra.Spectra has taken this step to maintain the challenging balance of serving a high-quality product but with a moderate price which is non negotiable.
