I suppose it depends a bit but when I was there this time last year we never had any difficulty. There's quite a concentration anyway so if one were full there are plenty of others.

If you want to be sure to get a table on a particular night at a particular restaurant, it would probably be wise to book, especially in some of the smaller places. As verity says though, there are a lot of restaurants in the same area so if one is full, you're bound to get a table in one of the others. I think most do take bookings if you did want to reserve a table.

I'm sure you'll love being B & B as there as so many places to try out. A lot are 'western style' but some of those who serve mainly English type food also serve local Egyptian food as well, so you can have the best of both worlds.

As Verity says, it does depend on the time of year & how busy the town is although I'd advise booking for Sofra and the 1886 in the Winter Palace all year round.
