We were looking for a place for a beer in Cairo. Found this place, also know as Cheers bar. Really nice setting and friendly staff. Had a lovely cold beer. Didn't eat as it was too early for dinner but it looked great.

Abou el Sid has a reputation for being one of the few must-visit restaurants for travelers visiting Cairo. Its reputation is well-deserved, I thought the meal I had there was very good indeed. The restaurant serves a nice variety of Egyptian and pan-Middle Eastern dishes....More
