So once again Christmas arrived and the Christmas Eve dinner was in full swing. Not quite so many people this year, but as we remarked last year, that makes it more intimate, plus of course we all knew each other. It was a good night, the food excellent as it always is. The laughter after dinner was fun, and as... More

Although it was a quiet evening Gerda and her husband made the atmosphere happy and welcoming. The starters we had were particularly delicious and it was explained, with an Alexandrian touch. If you have any special likes or dislikes they will be happy to accommodate. If a food item is not available, no problem, a quick trip up the street... More

We had a wonderful time at this quaint little restaurant. Having read positive reviews on Trip Advisor and not eaten since breakfast, we turned up starving hungry. The menu did not disappoint. We were able to order a mezze from the appetisers to share between the five of us. As the food is cooked absolutely to order from fresh, there... More

First visit to this lovely little dinner, recommended by the spa owner in our hotel. We will definitely return. The food was well cooked and nicely presented. 6 of us ate here. We had duck, rabbit, macaroni, chicken and a vegetarian dish. I have never seen a piece of duck so big before! The owner was very friendly and chatty.... More

A really nice evening was spent here. Gerda & her family made us feel extremely welcome and invited us to sit with them following our meal. The menu has a mixture of dishes including Egyptian, German, and Italian. The food is homemade and tastes good.

Gerda's Garden is a great place for an informal evening. Gerda and Wael are lovely hosts and make everyone very welcome. The food is brilliant and very reasonable. The 'fillet ' steak is one of the best I have had even comparing to top restaurants !!! It is a proper fillet not like in some restaurants. We dined there many... More

Went to Gerda's after seeing it recommended. It made a nice change and we had a lovely evening. Tried some German dishes and really enjoyed the food. Gerda and her husband are charming people and they went out of their way to be welcoming. Very handy from the Hilton hotel.
