I was really turned off by their service both times I have been there. Super, super slow. Don't think I'll go back a third time.

Easy walking from Longhamps hotel, quirky tented garden restaurant with simple food. Fun for people watching.

Recently renovated with air conditioning now in the covered garden - a wonderful improvement on those warm Cairo nights. The food is good, the staff attentive, and the atmosphere comfortably casual. A great place for friends to enjoy a long evening.

This place has a garden which is a plus in Cairo. However the food is quite awful and the sisters rude. My phone was stolen from the table while the waiter was putting down the food. They seemed not to care and claimed that I never even brought the phone with me. Go for a drink. Avoid the food and... More

Lovely covered garden location. Towards the weekends a reservation might help to secure a table. The lamb chops are excellent!

Temperatures regulated by A/C & fans so very comfortable at 24c as indicated by a screen at the entrance. Light classical and Egyptian folklore music by a pianist situated in the middle of the large tented garden of a villa in Zamalek. Busy but not too loud. Excellent service and good variety of entrees. Perfect for groups of up to... More

I have been coming to Five Bells for years in Zamalek and always sat in the quiet outside area. Never knew until this this trip there was a back area bar. We were a group of friends and we shared the food which came out together. Absolutely delicious Egyptian treats including Wara Einab ( my favourite) Egyptian vine leaves with... More
