A friend from Cairo recommended the place and it was really nice. The food was traditional and very well done. Our favorites were a hummus with meat and a goat cheese with some spices. The chicken liver was also a very lovely dish and the fried cheese very delicious. The only thing is that in Cairo most of the places... More

Estoril, is an old style restaurant, prefect if you want to go for a mid budget food, their main dishes are quite good for the price. Also prefect to have some drinks with some side dishes. If smoke annoys you, this is not the place to be. Here comes the negative side, last time I went to this place, I... More

The place is very well known in Cairo, it has a history and the clients of these restaurant are usually middle class of all ages. The food is quiet good and the place serves alcohol. The prices are low to mid-range specially if you are reading it in USD, after the EGP fell in November.

Dim lighting and faded glory in a restaurant full of old time charm. Middle eastern fare with a French touch. Not exceptional, but good food. Also has a bar. It's on an alley between Kasr al Nil and Talaat Harb streets, not far from Tahrir Square. A nice place for lunch after visiting the Egyptian Museum.

Centrally located in downtown with good food and mid range prices. The service is very friendly. Can get really crowded at some times.

We went here for dinner. Need Egyptian pounds. Had english menu. The thomeya (garlic dip) will change your life! Delicious! We were there during a football game so the tv part of the restaurant was smokey. Otherwise good choice.

We were staying just around the corner from this place and decided to check it out for dinner. Food was very tasty (try the 'hummus and meat') and staff friendly. On the cheaper side as far as restaurants go in the area. Nothing mind-blowing but certainly satisfying.
