Restaurants Eat Out

  • Felfela Alaa El Din lovesART wrote: Look no further for one of the best Egyptian restaurants in Cairo. Opened in 1958, Felfela serves traditional Egyptian vegetarian and grilled dishes. Popular among tourists, Felfela is a great first choice to try the basics of Egyptian cuisine. Try the famed taamaya. The restaurant is divided into separate dining areas decorated with potted plants, intricate wood detailing and old-world antiques. Service is friendly. More >>
  • Red Sea Fish Restaurant lovesART wrote: Red Sea Fish Restaurant serves a colorful selection of fresh fish, which you can have prepared any way you like it.

Bakery & Pastry Shops

  • Bakery By Marriott newtocairo wrote: Bakery by Marriot is a reliable choice for a quick bite or food on the go. The menu is basic sandwiches and salads, but ingredients are fresh and the baguette bread is tasty. They also offer an assortment of neatly displayed pastries, croissants, cakes and chocolates. Pre-made gift baskets and cakes available for any occasion. Multiple locations. More >>
  • El Abd Pastry Traveler wrote: I adore its ice cream and its bakery is very professional. Really its experience doesn't come from leisure but rather over years. More >>

Cafes and Coffee Shops

  • Costa Coffee Wassily wrote: Costa cafe is one of the best hangout spots me and my friends always go to, prices are good, drinks always served fresh and hot, and the staff is always friendly, specially this branch people are so friendly and helpful. Unfortunately there is one major thing that made me stop going there, in last Eid Costa had a lame offer, each person had to order 1 piece of cake in his order... because it's the Eid, I go there to drink, why should I be forced to eat and order something I don’t want to.. What if I had diabetes, it made me leave the place. Because I have the right to order what I want when I want, I shouldn’t be forced to order something because it's the Eid. Other than that I enjoy Costa very much. More >>
  • Cilantro Mahy wrote: Cilantro has currently extended their repertoire of dishes to include the rather novel idea of build-it-yourself salads, pasta and desserts; and the good news is that you get to choose the toppings yourself, be it white or red sauce, plus a variety of cheeses for the pasta; an array of vegetables and dressings for the salads; or chocolate, fruit, dates and marshmallow for the desserts. Those, who prefer their food already assembled, can choose from the wonderful selection of sandwiches, baguettes, wraps and paninis; fresh salads, soups or delicious desserts and pastries. More >>

Smouha Club is clean and comfortable, suitable for the young and the not so young, even the children have a place of their own. There are facilities for polo, soccer, table tennis, basketball, volleyball, handball, hockey, swimming, water polo, and there are two areas reserved for skateboard. There are also many restaurants such as; McDonald’s, Sinos, Festival, Happy Time, Buffalo, and Bon Appetit. Really this club is super cool because there are plenty of choices there. More >>
  • Aviation Club besso wrote: Although this club is one of the leading clubs in handball sport, its design and attentions towards other sports rather than the handball get the club in a bad class with respect to other sporting clubs. More >>

Playgrounds & Amusement Parks

  • Lion Village momo wrote: You are a wonderful place, really. Your idea is very new in Egypt and you exist in a suitable place for many people to visit. Your baby lions are so cute to play with. They are so tiny and wonderful to photograph. It is a chance that will never come again. Also, the ostrich are fantastic. I loved them so much and loved playing with them. Also, the food was fantastic and delicious, especially the pies or El Fater el meshaltet with honey. It is the best meal, so keep on because you are the best place to go and have fun. More >>
  • Dream Park momo wrote: I love you so much because you are the only place in the world where I want to go when I want to have fun and spend a fantastic day cheering. All your games are fantastic and make me happy just seeing them. The rocket game is unbelievable and also the death train, wow. You have so many games that I can't finish them all. My family and I wait until a vacation day so that we can spend it at Dream Park. You are easy to reach. I am waiting for your new games, you are the best. More >>

Cinemas & Theaters

  • Golden Stars Cinema Mohamed Salah wrote: Well i think its the best cinema because it offers the best experience. first no one under 18 allowed... So there are no kids in the cinema! AMAZING!! The seats are so comfortable and the spacing between them is more than enough even for a chubby person... I have to say that if i want to go to cinema i don't just check for the movie names, i check for the movies that are being displayed in the golden stars cinema. More >>
  • Galaxy Cinema Wassily wrote: Cinema Galaxy is the real home of the best movies ever... with a great price for the 10 am and 1 am sessions and 30 L.E for other sessions, with sessions up till 1:00 am. It's a great place to enjoy your favorite new movies once they are released in Egypt. The cinema itself is organized, with a great cafeteria where you can buy your favorite snack for the movie... POPCORN and other products. The Cinema halls itself are very clean and very comfortable and the staff are very friendly and they are always happy to help you with any problem you may have. The sound isolation is very well designed (since I am an architecture student, I pay attention to these things) so you don’t feel echo or sounds from another movie next to you. One of the best Cinema places in Egypt. More >>

Fitness Centers

  • Gold's Gym - Egypt Family man wrote: I have been a member since Oct 1997 which is 6 months prior to actual opening time. I have many great memories from this place first and foremost I met with my wife while working out there. I also met my best friend there and it was definitely a major reason why I liked Cairo so much. I still go 5 times weekly but now after marriage and kids my hours have changed. I go at 5.30 am before I go to the office which is great for me. It was the first "real" gym to open in Cairo and it quickly attracted many members and beside being a great gym it also became a social club where you see all your friends. The prices are not cheap mind you. I believe a yearly membership costs app LE 4,000 but you can negotiate so be sure to ask. The gym is located on the 8th floor in what I believe are 2 or 3 apartments joined together which means that the ceiling is not that high for a gym but it looks good. There is also a pool on the roof but I have personally never used it. If I want to go to a pool there are many other and better options in Cairo (for example JW Marriott on the ring road). The equipment is both free weights as well as machines and the cardio area is quite well equipped (that is if they work!). You can definitely get a full body workout regardless of your level of fitness. Dumbbells go up to 120lb. Many of the cardio machines now have a tv screen attached to them and you can plug in your headset and watch some tv while you are working out. It helps pass the time for me but the problem is that it is hit and miss. Sometimes the TV's don't work and sometimes the channels you normally watch are gone and sometimes.... You get the picture. Try out the cardio entertainment system before you get on because having to start your program 4 times just to find one machine that works can be quite a drag. 2 of the bikes also now have the iPod/iPhone plug so you can watch your program on the cardio screen. Fantastic. Problem again that one of the 2 has been broken for a while now and saying so to the staff does not seem to work. Most of the staff speak English but don't seem to pass on any concerns or complaints you may have because nothing really changes. The gym is open from 5 am till midnight so you should be able to find the time that suits you but beware that it can get pretty crowded in the late afternoon and early evening. One of the first high end gyms in Egypt and still one of the best but dont expect a level as gyms in UAE, Jordan, Europe and US. More >>
  • Gold's Gym - Egypt fido wrote: I've been exercising at Gold's in Maadi since 1998, so fair to say it's a pretty good gym. The weight lifting equipment is good and relatively new. The music is always dependent on the front desk clerk's personal taste though ... in my case i sometimes have to listen to hip hop or rave music at 6 AM... not really my thing at 6 AM - management should agree on an appropriate type / selection of music for all times of the day and make certain that staff stick to their rules. The cardio equipment is on the older side and is not well maintained and the cardio built in TV screens are notoriously renown for not working ... when you step onto a cardio machine you never know what to expect ... screen may be burnt, volume not working, the channel you like to watch everyday is all of a sudden gone and nobody seems to understand how the satellite system works. They open very early and close very late which is good. On a final note, they could learn something about customer service; i go early in the morning and there are extra rooms such as the circuit room which i would like to use and when i asked if i could, the front desk clerk said "no". So i said "well why not?" so he said "because it's not open in the morning" and i replied "well i pay the same fees as others and i would like to use it too" ... anyway, a pointless discussion which did nothing other than irritate the heck out of me. In the end the clerk said "if you want to complain, write a complaint". More >>

Spas

  • 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: 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.

Pharmacies

  • Haytham & Salah Pharmacy Sha Sha wrote: This is a really convenient pharmacy for shopping if you're at the Grand Mall. It's quite large and has just about everything you'd expect to find in one of the pharmacy chains in North America. The drug counter has knowledgeable staff who speak fluent English (if you require this) and offer advice and suggestions relative to what you're buying. More >>

Doctors

  • Chiro Practic Clinic - Dr. Hesham Atta Family man wrote: I sprained my back during a shoulder workout with the result that I was bed ridden. Constant pain and whenever I moved my neck a shooting pain flared up through my neck and down my back and into my arm. You realize how often you actually move your neck when it hurts. Dr. Hisham Atta was recommended to me by a friend and I called him up and explained my situation. He was very helpful and I set an appointment the same day only a few hours later. He was relatively punctual and he even called me on my mobile to explain that the reason he was late (20 minutes) was that there had been an accident on the Corniche in Maadi and traffic was blocked up. The treatment took app 45 minutes and I left a different man. I wasnt 100% cured but at least I could move without constant pain. His clinic is on the 16th floor of Maadi Hotel and parking around this area is very easy. Dr. Hisham speaks fluent English and has several educational certificates from the US. He specializes in sports injuries and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need for help in that regard. More >>
