It’s the holiday season and Christmas is knocking on our doors. One of the best things about the merry holiday; other than playing secret santa and of course decorating the Christmas tree, is the FOOD!


So, if you’re ready to get festive, here’s a list of the best places in Cairo where you can have a get-together with friends or family over a hearty Christmas meal. Oh, and before we delve into this list, note that not all of the following places provide your typical Christmassy dishes.

They say Christmas vibes in France are like nowhere else. You might not be able to gaze at the Eiffel tower or walk around Strasbourg’s Marché de Noel, but you could still enjoy Left bank’s French Brasserie experience.






Italian feels are no less. Plus, pizza is the cure for anything and everything. When it comes to that, Olivo’s pizzas come with sugar and spice and everything nice. Oh, and there’s wine; lots of it!
