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

We haven't been here for a year, because our last experience was mediocre. But honestly, this time it is much better: - the artishok and the ansjovis salads are great. The food is ok. - the service is excellent. An unexpected pleasure. - the pianist tries very hard (and is ok) So: 5 bells deserves our second chance

I was really turned off by their service both times I have been there. Super, super slow. Don't think I'll go back a third time.

Easy walking from Longhamps hotel, quirky tented garden restaurant with simple food. Fun for people watching.

Recently renovated with air conditioning now in the covered garden - a wonderful improvement on those warm Cairo nights. The food is good, the staff attentive, and the atmosphere comfortably casual. A great place for friends to enjoy a long evening.

This place has a garden which is a plus in Cairo. However the food is quite awful and the sisters rude. My phone was stolen from the table while the waiter was putting down the food. They seemed not to care and claimed that I never even brought the phone with me. Go for a drink. Avoid the food and... More
