I've been here many times and it's one of my favorite restaurants in Cairo.
It's located on the first floor of an old building in Zamalek.

The food is great and the service excellent.
Price is fairly good, not too cheap, not too expensive.


There is only one drawback: smoke. It's still permitted to smoke inside the restaurant and the air might become easily saturated. There is no airflow to prevent this problem.

One night after having dinner at bodega I had to put all my clothes on the balcony.

Hidden away in a house (Boehlers Mansion) which you won't easily find - and without any sign outside the building - there are two lovely (rather upmarket) places on the first floor. Walk - or take the wonderful century-old art-deco elevator.
The "Aperitivo" is a bit more lively, loud - supposedly "Italian".
The "Bodega" is more dinner-wise. Great food. Good (Egyptian) wines. Reasonably priced. Wonderful and very friendly service. After dinner - be sure to go for a walk through the wonderfully vibrant neighbourhood - or drop in for a 'last drink' at the very close club-cum-restaurant..

It is difficult to find with no sign on the street. Its just yto the right of Drinkies (beer, wine and spirits) on the second floor of a fairly nondescript building.
Beautiful space with 20 foot ceilings and nicely set out tables.
Beer and wine available.
Food could be better but it is a good average - varied menu. Good portions.
