Five Bells

Egyptian in Cairo

A pretty place to rest up after a long stroll through Zamalek, this garden restaurant serves traditional Egyptian mezze to a soundtrack of Edith Piaf and other wistful European tunes, along with plinky-plonky live piano in the evenings. The bar here is a relaxed spot to snack on meatballs and fresh fried potato crisps while sinking a cold beer.
