Restaurants Eat Out

  • La Sirena momo wrote: La Sirena is one of the smallest restaurants that you may ever see. However, it is one of the best ones that you may ever try. It specializes in presenting seafood only. The decor of La Sirena is a little bit old, dark and outdated, but it adds to the charm of the place and its attractiveness. People working there are very friendly and helpful. There are a little meat dishes on their menu for clients who are less interested in seafood dishes. We started with smoked seafood platter for 85 LE. It came with smoked shrimp crabs, salmon and shrimps. It was very delicious and the smoked salmon was pink and very tasty. The onions on top were very fresh, sweet and lovely. For the main course, we ordered beau petit fish fillet for 58 LE, it was fantastic and so delicious. More >>
  • Chili's JOJO wrote: Chili on Fifth Avenue is one of the most luxurious restaurants I have visited recently with my husband. I remember on my visit to Chili’s my husband and I told the waiter that it was difficult to chose only one desserts from the many on the menu, he suggested two that were delicious. We also enjoyed the chicken and rice and salad and the bread that you can only find at Chili’s. More >>

Bakery & Pastry Shops

  • El Abd Pastry themind wrote: So, I work downtown and El Abd is 2 minutes away from me. By far it’s the best selling franchise for oriental desserts I’ve ever seen in Cairo. It’s located downtown in two of the most places that people go to for buying clothes or just hanging out. First of all: ice cream. It sells like crazy and there are simply 3 reasons for this. 1- It tastes great and FRESH (as everything they have is fresh, they sell so fast that nothing ever stays for half a day). 2- Their location is the best for selling ice cream. 3- The price is right: around 4 LE for two balls. Second thing: oriental desserts. FRESH as everything else and they are good, though not the best in town. Third thing: pastries 5 of 5 stars. They’re a must try and they are fairly priced: around 2 to 4 EGP depending on what you choose. Boghasha is a must try for those with a sweet tooth and everything else is amazing too. Fourth: nuts. Yes, they even sell nuts and the quality is excellent. I even know some friends from Maadi (and we have many nuts specialists in Maadi) who buy their nuts from El Abd, especially when its Ramadan (the month of fasting). All in all they're the best at what they do. The freshest too, only thing that’s not perfect are their oriental desserts, but it still gets a very good mark. More >>
  • Sedra Sweets wrote: In the recent years, Sedra became one of the best patisseries. Sedra sells very similar products to another very well known patisserie in Heliopolis but with huge difference in prices. The cakes, tarts, gateaux and the oriental sweets are always fresh as well as delicious. In Ramadan for example, you can spend more than half an hour trying to buy oriental sweets because of the large number of customers. The staff there are very professional and are being supervised regularly so you can barely have problems with them there. For example, one day I went there in Ramadan & ordered gateaux soiree. Due to the large number of customers at that time, the worker chose everything without giving me the chance to select. After he had finished, I objected to some of the selections, his supervisor ordered him to change the whole pack according to my choice. More >>

Cafes and Coffee Shops

  • Cinnabon newtocairo wrote: This popular worldwide chain offers the biggest, freshest and gooiest cinnamon rolls. As you enter, the aroma of freshly baked dough, cinnamon and sugar are enticing and inviting. Enjoy the classics or try other styles with caramel and nut toppings. Tea, coffee and iced-coffee drinks round out the menu. Most branches offer seating and free Wifi. Delivery available. More >>
  • Carlos Cafe ahmedfk wrote: I have gone to Carlos Café several times, it has a really good location beside Carrefour. Carlos Cafe has attracted a lot of shoppers going to Carrefour as they can have a drink or a meal that are really well made. There is a closed area and an open one provided with a large LCD TV. Carlos also provides the WI-FI internet service so you can go there and browse for as long as you want. The meals are delicious but the café has a minimum charge of 40LE which is considered expensive. More >>

Playgrounds & Amusement Parks

  • Kee Action Sports - Paint Ball Sal wrote: Great Sport and the best of all is the fact that they have 2 fields to play in. You must play the 2 fields or visit the new 3000 SQM New Field @ Al-Obour in Al-Obour City. More >>
  • Al Azhar Park newtocairo wrote: This inner city manmade oasis boasts four five-star restaurants offering spectacular views and excellent cuisine. The Lakeside Café, overlooking Mohamed Ali's mosque, offers light meals, snacks, desserts and coffee. The Ayubid Cafe takes in the entire expanse of foliage and greenery serving café-style food. Alain LeNotre lives up to its Parisian tradition of fine pastries, adding an oriental touch of Lebanese dishes and the panorama of Old Cairo. The more formal Citadel View Restaurant specializes in Oriental cuisine served ala carte or buffet style. Service in all venues is polite and professional. More >>

Cinemas & Theaters

  • Golden Stars Cinema AdoniS wrote: Yes, very comfortable seats.. but I would suggest you to have a jacket because it might be a bit chilly.. at least for me. More >>
  • Kiroseiz Cinema soliman wrote: Good cinema but not the best. They do not show 3D movies. The location inside Kiroseiz resort makes it a perfect choice for resort residents. I watched "Sami Oxide El Carbon" there. It was funny and nice to have a cinema near your place of accommodation. They gave me a free ticket since I was a Kiroseiz three corners resort resident.

Fitness Centers

  • Pro Center Health Club salah wrote: Pro center is one of the most expert and targeted gym in Egypt. They have very good trainers and a lot of machines and every machine have a touch screen to access the internet and enjoy the surfing while playing. They have very good doctors for those who want to know how to lose weight and know the percentage of the fats and muscles and water in their bodies. Their prices are normal and are low for all the options available in the gym. They have a swimming pool and massage and the doors of the gym open by your finger print. More >>
  • Pro Center Health Club Mohamed Salah wrote: Pro gym is one of the top gyms in Egypt. It is located in Nasr City, El Nasr Road just a few blocks after Tiba mall. The gym is very well equipped with Cardio/Vascular machines, weight lifting, all kinds of machines you would need. It also has Sauna, Jacuzzi, and Steam room in addition to a swimming pool at the roof of the building. The gym itself is located on the last floor of the building taking the complete floor. The gym is mixed, also with the option of ladies only hall, making it nice to go with your spouse for some work out. The cons are that it is extremely hard to find a parking spot, i used to park next to the building in an empty piece of land but now that they are building a tower, there is no place to park, actually this is why i didn't renew my membership. Also the other problem is that the gym can get crowded very easily, you would have to wait for 10-15 minutes sometime to get an empty treadmill. The owners of the place should understand is that once they have reached the capacity they should close the door to new memberships, or open a new branch to serve the increasing crowd. More >>

Spas

  • Mandara Spa Family man wrote: Best spa in Egypt. That pretty much sums it up. I love a good massage and spa experience and the Mandara Spa is top notch. From the moment you enter you feel as if you have entered a different world. You start by filling out a form detailing if there is any area you would like to have special focus on and if you have any areas which may have aches and pain. A great way to ensure there is no miscommunication and that you get exactly what you had in mind. I had the deep tissue full body massage with focus on my back area. The masseuse was polite, petite and from Thailand and OMG she could apply pressure on all the right places. It was so relaxing that I almost fell asleep and when my hour was up I just wanted to continue. I felt like a new man leaving and the biggest worry is that it is so good it could become addictive. Pricing is not cheap (expect app LE 600 for 1 hour) but well worth every pound. More >>
  • Mandara Spa Family man wrote: Update to my previous review; I recently went again to Mandara spa and the place itself as well as the massage is still one of the best in Egypt. I had a 90 minutes sports massage and the massage really went deep into my knots and I felt refreshed and relaxed afterwards. The lady was really great. However the small things often make a big difference and the towels and bathrobes smelled really bad and even after exchanging them the replacement also smelt really bad. The very nice Thai lady who brought us the towels smelled them herself and the face she made when she smelled them said it all. I almost laughed. She explained that the laundry service of the hotel is not working properly!!!! WHAT? I wonder what they do with all their sheets. Not a nice thought. Besides that you take of (almost) all of your clothes to get a massage and then you walk to the massage room from your locker room. They used to have the one time slippers that all 5 star hotels have in their rooms but this time they had a pair of plastic slippers that really looked as if they had been worn by a construction worker for years. No way am I going to put my feet in those. I guess the times are hard and they need to save where they can but saving on towels and slippers is not the right place. It really ruins the whole mood.

Doctors

  • Dr. Inas Shaltout amira wrote: The worst experience of my life. Waited long hours in the clinic. Haphazard arrangement of appointments, rude secretary and above all poor reception for patient complaints by the physician. Had to listen to an old TV interview for the physician over and over for 5 hours; I nearly had a nervous breakdown. What tournament and suffering!! Highly not recommended. There are pretty much better physicians than this one definitely. More >>
