We just got back from a package tour of Egypt which started and ended at Le Meridien Pyramids in Giza. The first night, we ate at Felfela on the recommendation of our guide and enjoyed delicious local food including pigeon, falafel, and other local fare. All our food was delicious, the service friendly, and cost inexpensive (at least by Western... More

Our guide Mina Samir brought us here after we requested to have an authentic Egyptian lunch. There are two parts to the restaurant: the sit-down place (where we didn't go) and the more casual walk-up place where you stand in line, order and can then eat at the informal tables next to the street, or can takeaway (we sat at...

This restaurant is definitely worth a visit if you appreciate a view on the pyramids with your dinner. The staff is extremely nice and professional, the food is good quality and reasonably priced. My favorite dish was taamia with eggs, but the stuffed pidgeon was also a big hit with the family.

Felfela is a great place to introduce to first time visitors to Cairo. Located in a busy street in town it is easy to miss unless you pay close attention.

Freshly made falafel here! Pair that with some hummus, and maybe a local beer like Sakara, then you're all set.

Great service from our wait staff. This place was highly recommended by our driver Wadi. Everything was delicious. It's well known restaurant in the expat circle.

This was the best meal and the most authentic Egyptian food my husband and I had while in Egypt. Delicious selection of dips, breads and felafels. The atmosphere and service were both very good. It is always a good sign when lots of locals are eating in a restaurant. as they were here.

Nice place good menu but awful service if you are not locals. We practically had to beg for the menus and a drink of water. Worst was the waiter asking for a tip on top of the hefty service charge.
