    Abu el Sid

    Incredibly atmospheric bohemian Egyptian restaurant. Supposedly loved by Omar Sharif. Definitely upscale but drips with atmosphere. The food could be a little better but is still quite good. Reservations a must. Be sure to take a map. A little hard to find the door but once you see it, it is pretty obvious.

    Rick's Café Casablanca

    2 reviews

    If you go to Casablanca, you of course have to visit Rick's Cafe. The restaurant is modeled after "Ricks American Cafe" in the iconic movie Casablanca. The food at the restaurant is pretty good, but the main draw is the ambiance. The owners have taken a lot of consideration into modeling the restaurant exactly like it is seen in the ...

    I remember hearing about this place at a dinner party years ago and thinking it sounding interesting though I'm not big on game meats. Now while I would never consider ever eating Lion or the like...after seeing Gazelles, Zebra's etc getting eaten by Lions I figured trying some would be OK. For the most part though I thought the place ...

    Sevruga Restaurant

    6 reviews

    I was a little nervous entering Sevruga. The V&A Waterfront restaurant is huge, and the larges menu is all over the place--sushi, Asian tapas, classic seafood, etc. But the seafood is perfectly prepared and the service is phenomenal. A notch above many of the waterfront restaurants.

    Koshary Abou Tarek

    Must visit and try that food. Hygiene and interior (as well as exterior) could be better, but koshary are very tasty and unusual for European traveler. The prices are very cheap and service is quick.

    Ali Barbours Cave Restaurant

    All I can say is WOW! The food is great, the location is great, the price is great! We had a three course meal, a bottle of wine, a bottle of water, and cocktails for less than £60 for both of us! Wish I could go back every week!

    Great restaurant! Think it was awarded the best restaurant in South Africa in '08 or something. Great taste, great wine, good service and a cosy atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit!

    Lagon 1

    Quirky little bar and restaurant. Situated right on the Atlantic with the water crashing under you as you eat it makes for a memorable experience.

    an outdoor venue by the nile river in Zamalek. there are more than 30 flavors of Shisha (including cappuccino) there and the food is good. Go for the Hawawshi a fatty meat pie that is full of flavors.

    Pretty good food, especially the spread of dips with pita. Nice atmosphere for lounging around for a bit.

    Table Mountain Cafe

    7 reviews

    Decidedly overpriced for what's on offer. Agree with other reviewers. Take a bottle of water or snack and go somewhere else afterwards.

    Nobu Cape Town

    3 reviews

    17/20; Food 9/10, Ambience 4/5, Service 4/5. Located in the One&Only hotel, the recent opening of the windows allowing fleeting glimpses of Table Mountain outside. Cavernous quadruple-height room lends much drama to the space. Not that any is needed with fish this fresh being prepared in inimitable Nobu style. Fabulous - easily one of the top 5 places to eat ...

    Yod Abyssinia Restaurant

    3 reviews

    There are two outlets of this restaurant in Addis. One is large and is a tourist trap -- that actually serves food in a buffet style (with white bread and forks / spoons!). The other is smaller, more intimate, and serves food Ethiopian style (on a shared plate and you eat with your hands). We visited the more intimate location ...

    On the weekends, you'll be lucky to find a table. This place is incredibly popular with locals and tourists alike. The food is fantastic and the beer mugs are huge.
