  • Paul Family man wrote: Paul is a great bakery chain originally from France but now with many locations in several countries. Their bread is fantastic. You actually need teeth to take bite out of the bread which is how I like it. They have traditional baguette as well as a large variety of whole grain breads which are all much better for you than the white mush you normally find from for example Rich Bake. Paul also has a good selection of cakes and tarts as well as croissants and all are recommended. The interior is nice and clean and I would say like a French bistro. They also have a good variety of salads and sandwiches. The only drawback is their prices. They are expensive. I paid almost LE 200 for a whole tart and a bread is typically LE 20-25. Nor for your everyday normal use but once in a while when you want something special go to Paul. More >>

Cafes and Coffee Shops

  • Costa Coffee ODDA wrote: I like this branch so much. It is noisy, but the staff are very good and their recipes are done well. If you are going their way, you must try it :) More >>
  • Testa Rossa Cafe souljackal wrote: Testa Rossa is definitely one of the very best. With their blue tinted modern atmosphere, the chill out music they play, their nice cozy seats and fresh desserts, it all puts you into a celebrating mood, even if you do not have anything to really celebrate. The place overlooks the horse riding arena and every sunset. It's a magnificent view that you will probably come back for sooner or later. Their TV screens are crispy clear and they have a policy though that is against showing the local football league, only international encounters. More >>


  • Greek Club lovesART wrote: Traditional Greek bouzouki music, vintage decor and an outdoor patio accompany Greek and Egyptian fare at this go-to tavern. This popular restaurant and bar is open to the public (entrance fee and minimum charge for non-members). Greek Club undeniably serves the best Greek salad in town, with crumbly feta cheese adorning a plate of fresh, colorful vegetables. The menu also features Egyptian standards like shish tawouk and kebabs served with generous portions of crispy fries. Local beer and wine served. Closed during Ramadan. More >>
  • 25 January Village soliman wrote: Not the best but amazing place for weekend vacations in Ismailya. It's a quiet and clean place. Its location is a great advantage as there are lots of coffee shops in this area. I'm not sure if civilians can stay there, but if you have a relative or a friend that is a police officer, he may help you to reserve a room there. You will really enjoy your stay. More >>

Playgrounds & Amusement Parks

  • International Park momo wrote: It is one of the best places in Egypt. It is also one of the oldest gardens. All the plants are rare and special. The garden is designed in a very special way it consists of levels that increase in height as you go. Taking photos there is fantastic you will get magnificent pictures that will always make you remember, and the air is clean and healthy due to wide green areas. Never hesitate to go whenever you get the chance. More >>
  • Al Azhar Park Wassily wrote: Al Azhar park is the first of its kind in Egypt. It’s a place you can go with your family or your group of friends and have a lot of fun and enjoy your time. Once you enter, you face a very beautiful fountain. Then you move forward and you see the beautiful landscape and the green areas spread across the park. With various pergolas spread allover, you can sit anywhere you want and enjoy your time. Also with excellent food shops and outlets, you can go there and find all your needs. Food, great outdoor place, lots of green areas and the all-time beautiful huge lake. The only thing I didn't like is that at the fountains and the water places, there are children who go there and swim and no one says it's forbidden and they just let them, which ruins the scene and the beauty of the place. Just hope they have more security guards or park guards to stop that from happening, other than that. The place is perfect. More >>

Cinemas & Theaters

  • Stars Cinema newtocairo wrote: My husband and I enjoy going to Stars Cinema Friday mornings, as the theater is empty. If you are like me and don’t like crowds, I recommend the 10:15 or 11:00am VIP showings. A VIP ticket is about 100 LE and you can select your own seat (only around 30 seats) and relax in a comfortable leather recliner! You can order lunch or dinner from a special menu and have it delivered to your seat while enjoying your movie. There is also a concession stand with popcorn and candy. The staff always prepares a fresh batch for us and it tastes just like it does in the states. Also, the bathrooms are very clean and modern. Make sure to bring a jacket, as the theater is freezing!

  • Cairo Opera House Marie Lou wrote: I love going to the Opera House, although I'm sure it does not have the grandeur of its burned down predecessor the Opera House complex is most imposing. I check the English language news paper to see what's playing, when, as soon as I arrive in Cairo. So far I've seen the Cairo Opera House Company perform Aida (very good), a concert of ancient Arabic music (fabulous) and a Broadway, very, very, off Broadway I should think (meh). The acoustics are good, the view from every seat excellent and the lounge spacious. The only problem is to get out of the parking lot when the performance is over, try to park as close to the exit as possible. More >>

  • Mandara Spa Marie Lou wrote: One day suffering from a case of “Pharaonic Phatigue “I decide to pay a visit to the Mandara Spa in the Marriott Hotel. Relaxation starts when you step in to the foyer where you are offered a tray containing tea, a warm scented towel to refresh yourself and the list of treatments to choose from. The decor is tasteful Asian, the lights are dim, and a lovely citrusy fragrance and soothing music waft in the air. Even under the closest scrutiny what is most remarkable about the spa is the cleanliness, it is spotless. Once you have picked out your choice of treatment an attendant escorts you to a changing and shower room, then to the area where it will be administered. The same serene, tasteful decor and outstanding cleanliness is present all over the spa. I had a Moroccan bath and a rejuvenating facial both executed by a tiny Asian technician with hands surprisingly strong when giving a body massage and as light as butterflies when working on facials. The experience was a vacation within a vacation and worth every penny. Always best to call ahead to make an appointment and specify what you want done so they can set up and be ready for you when you arrive. More >>
  • 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 >>

  • Chiro Practic Clinic - Dr. Hesham Atta fido wrote: I've been exercising for most of life and in the process I have managed to injure my back several times. Typically my back injuries have been in the lower back and every time the injury reoccurred i was basically out of the gym for several weeks ... until i met Dr. Atta... Dr. Atta diagnosis the affected area quickly and gets to work. He is a chiropractor, among other things, and has access to all of the essentials for back related pain and muscle injuries including ultrasound. Generally, in my case, a few back-to-back 15 minute sessions is all it takes to solve the problem and put me back in the gym. I highly recommend Dr. Atta and aside from being very good at what he does, he is also very personable. More >>
