An old restaurant in the heart of Helioplis, famous of its veal scallop & mixed grill, chicken liver, green salads & pigeons. With a cold beer or a glass of wine. Lunch & dinner are nice. Service ok prices good too

The Petit Palmyra has evidently been a Heliopolis institution for many years. You must approach it as such to enjoy a visit. The restaurant is very old fashioned with Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett songs playing in the background. Service was basically attentive with some small lapses. The Hummus and Egyptian salad starters were great. Fresh and flavorful. Unfortunately our main courses were on a lower standard. The food was edible but totally mediocre and unmemorable. But all in all I am glad that I visited the Petit Palmyra. It gave insight to a side of Cairo that I had not seen previously and was a good experience.

Just for the record, I had an expectation which was somehow different than what I encountered, due to the fact that it was New Year's Eve. I thought there will be romantic scene with piano music, but it was regular music, most of the time loud, suitable for a dance night not a romantic one. Other than this it was nice, waiters were polite & friendly, we had grilled veal chops, kabab, & kofta which was very delicious. Grilled chicken liver as an appetizer with 2 beers made a nice start. I would definitely go again, but will choose my night more carefully.
