A nice outside garden and even inside is just great. Food is very tasty and the service is 5 stars. Even to take a drink at the bar with some mezzas you'll just have a fantastic time. Reservation is recommended.

It's an elegant place in a sort of garden which is unusual in Cairo. Good food, nice service and affordable prices. European/Mediterranean atmosphere. A place to go every time you visit Cairo!

I consider it one of the most elegant and chic places in Cairo. The mezza menu is brilliant and always consistent. The staff are very friendly, prompt and professional. Drinks are so nice and prices are very reasonable to the service you get
