7 Best Date Restaurants in Cairo, Egypt

Whether it’s for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary or just any regular day of the week (the best option, in our opinion!), sometimes it’s nice to have dinner and a drink with your partner far away from the usual Cairo chaos of most restaurants.

Cairo has thousands of places to eat, and most are crowded, loud and brightly-lit – not exactly the ambiance you’re going for if you’re on a date. And while we still love some of those chaotic restaurants (Kebda el Prince, anyone?), today we’re focusing on where to go if you’re looking for good food, wine AND a great date vibe.

So without further ado:

1. Sachi

Sachi Park St.

Location: Heliopolis, Sheikh Zayed

While we love the terrace of Sachi Park St. in Sheikh Zayed, honestly either of Sachi’s two branches (the original being in Heliopolis) would make a great date spot. They deliver upscale Mediterranean fusion and sushi in gorgeous dimly-lit interiors.

2. Crimson

Location: Zamalek

If you want your date spot to incorporate a view, then look no further than Crimson, which has one of the best sweeping Nile views in the city. It’s equally as nice for a day date as it is for a night one – and they even serve breakfast! Make sure you snag one of the tables right at the end of the terrace.

3. Estro

Location: Maadi

This Italian rooftop restaurant & bar in Maadi is the perfect place to go during the day right before sunset – if you’re lucky and the skies are clear, you can actually see in the distance not only the Pyramids of Giza, but the Saqqara AND Dahshur Pyramids too!

4. Kazoku

Location: New Cairo

This Japanese-inspired restaurant and bar in the Swan Lake Compound of New Cairo is brought to you by the same restaurateurs that brought us Sachi. This indoor/outdoor restaurant is known for its sushi and creative cocktails.

5. Villa Belle Epoque

Location: Maadi

This converted villa-turned-boutique hotel is hidden down one of Maadi’s little leafy streets, making it the perfect spot for a date away from crowds. Villa Belle Epoque’s restaurant serves its meals next to their small pool, surrounded by trees and flowers.

6. Izakaya

Location: 6 October City

Cairo’s first Nikkei restaurant (Japanese-Peruvian fusion) is a great date spot for nights when the weather is warm enough to sit outdoors in their wooden terrace lit up by fairy lights. Avoid weekend nights though if you’re looking for a quieter vibe.

7. Pier 88

Location: Zamalek

This Nile view restaurant & bar is not only one of our Cairo favorites, but Gouna favorites too. They also have a branch in 6 October, but our favorite is the Zamalek one – it’s a great spot for day date or weeknights (not Tuesday though!). Tuesday and weekends get loud and more dancey, so keep that in mind unless that’s the vibe you’re looking for. Try to score a table on their outdoor deck if you can!
