A historical, tasteful place in the heart of Downtown, if not the most surprising taste-wise, sporting a quite varied, both traditional and elaborate menu, and offering a professional, courteous service, though very old-school.

Four of us on a business trip stopped in for lunch. One of my companions is originally from Cairo, and recommended we visit Felfela for lunch. Therefore, you know it's good if a "local" likes it!

This is a restaurant popular with tourists and students as well as Cairenes. It's not haute cuisine, but good Egyptian cuisine with some emphasis on vegetables. They sell beer and wine. The waiters are unusually friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere is friendly and informal.

Good quality Egyptian food. Great place to take guests from out of town. Not far from Tahrir square and the Egyptian museum

the restaurant is quite near to the Cairo museum, it's large and caters for groups quite easily, it has many waiters. Although the food was good and typical local cuisine, it is quite slow in coming. Price around 10€ for a meal.

On the bill it says 13% for VAT and 12% for a service charge... so when we paid the bill and left a little extra we were very rudely informed that the service share was just for the kitchen and not for...
