This is such a small dot of a place and quite easy to miss, but that would be a mistake. We had one of our best meals in Central America here, with freshly made bread, delicious hummus and baba ganoush and generous portions for the mains. The service is also fantastic, so friendly and attentive. Can't rate this place highly enough! If I were staying longer in San José, this would be my default choice.

The best dinner we've had in Central America. Cosy little restaurant serving delicious Egyptian food; the dishes are freshly cooked and authentic. Great service (with English speaking staff) and fantastic value.

Great experience! Excellent service and affordable price. I had the Almasri beef steak and Egyptian lemonade. Delicious.

The food was a nice change from the normal stuff we have been having in Costa Rica. I had a Almasri Kebab (beef) and it was amazing. We also had the hummus which was very yummy. I would highly recommend Al masri if you are in the area.

Costa Rica and Egyptian food? It was late one night and it was next to my hotel. Never had Egyptian food, very good and tasted fresh. Nice people.
