"Greek Club" Greek Club Tip by TheLongTone

Greek Club, Cairo: 1 reviews and 0 photos

The Greek Club is a remnant of the cosmopolitan Egypt of the inter-war years, down to it's location above the Midan Talaat Harb Groppi's. I think it's delightful, a great place to have a peaceful meal (and a beer if you fancy one) if you are a bit Egypt-ed out but don't want to go to the extreme of McDonalds or Pizza Hut. The ambience is just sort of faintly Eastern Med, the food Greek-ish (no need to worry about Bela Lugosi after the tzatziki) and very competent (both calamari and grilled prawns were done to perfection) although not particularly exciting: taverna staples with an Eqyptian spin.

Since it's nominally a club you have to pay LE5 temporary membership, but still very reasonably priced food and drink.

Address: Talaat Harb, Bab Al Louq, Abdeen, Cairo Governorate
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: The entrance is on the street to the right of Groppi's, not particularly obvious but the giveaway is a reproduction of a bit of Greek statuary in the hallway.
