La Chesa Cairo – Vintage European

"La Chesa" in Cairo is a Swiss restaurant that's completely different from what you can get in the rest of the city. You should try their cheese fondue...

Cairo’s downtown is lively and full of attractive spots. However, the problem with most of these spots is the large crowds and the noise that no one can seem to escape.

What makes La Chesa unique is its quiet and somewhat secluded location. Despite being in the middle or the downtown area, it’s a quiet, cosy and relaxing Swiss restaurant, perfect for dates or as a nice dinner/ breakfast spot.
The atmosphere is very different from most Cairene spots and feels like something out of the ’60s. Although a bit on the more expensive side, their prices are more affordable compared to similar spots. The Swiss cheese fondue which is their signature dish is especially great.

The staff were very friendly and hospitable, the music wasn’t too loud and matched the atmosphere. They offer a variety of drinks (including alcoholic) and a variety of side snacks, non-alcoholic drinks and one of the best hot chocolates I've tried.

Overall La Chesa has an old sort of glamour, and being in one of the oldest neighborhoods of Cairo makes it perfect for a night out.
