A genuine Egyptian restaurant with a cosy atmosphere and nice waiters. The food was very good and we left the restaurant feeling full and content.

Before visiting it a heard a lot about the place which resulted that the experience was not as i expected. The service was friendly and the place gives a very nice vibe. I ordered meat fata ( meat with rice and bread ) but it wasn't at the optimal taste.

The atmosphere at Abou El Sid is special. The kitchen serves really Egyptian delicacies. Staff friendly, even when it is busy. Of course shisha is available. In summer you can sit outside, too cold in February.

My favourite restaurant in ANY country. Any time I go back to Egypt, 5 times now, I have to go here. The ambiance is amazing, it's service is even better and the food....OMG, treat yourself to some great Egyptian dishes now served as Masterpieces. It's a nice quiet serene restaurant that balances everything to perfection.
