Don Quichotte was quite a disappointing experience for me.
I went there with some friends to at night to have a couple of beers with mezzes. Briefly:
- Food is way overpriced !! Probably the worst value for money restaurant in Zamalek
- Mezzes were not really good
- Stella comes in can (for 50LE, I'd expect glass bottle)
- Service was quite slow (and one order was forgotten)
- And finally, we were told to leave at 10pm as the restaurant was closing

I personally do not recommand that restaurant nor do I intend to go back.

The crowd wasn't that good. Mostly with "old" people. Better to have the corner table and chill. They have good fried calamari and free chips. George, the staff, is really nice.

This is a wonderful small restaurant. Good food, good service, reasonable prices. Perfect for an intimate dinner for two during the early evening, and perfect for a small group of friend later.

I haven't been here in 10 years! Walking in was like stepping back in time. I met so many different people there. Everyone was having a ball. The owner is always there and apparently nobody shows up here before 11 pm!!!
The place oozes old and loyal clients. The women and men are very well dressed and I stood out in my jeans!
The food was really good and the service was way beyond excellent.
If you like the Pub 28 you will definitely like it here too.
