I was there to meet a colleague and his guests/colleagues. The place looks so good, just in front of Giza pyramids. The service is really bad, they showed us few types of fish and they charged the guests a fortune for the seabass and some on-side dishes. I did not try the fish as I usually do not eat the... More

We ate grilled shrimp, grilled fish and fried calamari. We didn't choose from a menu, but rather went to the kitchen and choose all of this. It was well prepared and it came fast. Was a good meal, but we were surprise at the end with the check. Although we are almost in front of the Pyramids, with the little... More

Christo - this is not only any name: It is an institution! try any kind of fish... you will be satisfied! Ask the waiters for recommendation... and they will help you a lot... Tip: try to sit in first floor - with a great view to the Giza-Pyramids... Have fun at Christo`s

Expect to dine in one of the oldest restaurants in Cairo (beg 1920ies...) Expect the best sea food in Cairo, recommended by locals. Expect the owner to show you all the fish served in the menu, so you can hand pick them personally. Expect to pay a hefty bill, if you don't agree on price beforehand in kitchen. :)) Expect... More
