Description
Founded by A. Zaghloul in 1959, in the heart of the greater Cairo, Felfela has become one of the most iconic restaurants in Egypt. Felfela is the first restaurant to promote the Egyptian and the Mediterranean cuisine inside and outside of Egypt. With its very authentic decoration, Felfela offers a unique experience and not just a place to eat. Only in our restaurant, you can feel the originality of the typical oriental decoration that symbolizes the traditions of the Egyptian society. Perfection and excellence are our trademark. Do not miss the opportunity to live this unique experience ! Felfela Downtown is operating under a different management than other branches.​
