Where to take your partner on a special occasion: An expert’s recommendations!

Psyched about your partner’s birthday and want to take them to a new place? Maybe your anniversary is coming up and you’re planning something special? We’ve got some answers for you!

Here are some nice spots you can take your loved one to, recommended by Nour Naguib; one of Trustious’s Stars who has written over 250 restaurant and food reviews, receiving endless Helpful votes by other Trustians. We basically consider her an expert on restaurants!

If you’re early risers and have a plan for the whole day, you can start with a refreshing breakfast at Tempo in 6th of October. Overlooking a huge golf court at Allegria, it provides a small indoor and huge outdoor seating area with excellent food, friendly staff and of course, amazing view.

For lunch, and could also serve as a breakfast place;

There’s Paul in Downtown, New Cairo. It has a classic French style to it and a real French cuisine with high quality food. The staff is friendly, and it’s a little expensive. However, you’ll find the whole experience is very pleasant and worth your money.

Then there’s Left Bank in Zamalek right next to Sequoia. It’s surrounded by full-length glass windows overlooking the Nile, so it gives a shiny open air feeling, minus the too hot or too cold weather. The interior is nice and the food is great as well.

Now let’s come to the more luxurious, cozy and private ones, where you can dine and relax;

Little Swiss in Maadi is perfect for a romantic getaway. There’s a warm feeling there, like you’re sitting in a small farm – thanks to the cow theme all over the place :) but the experience is nice and though the place is small you can still have some privacy. The owner runs the place herself and is extremely welcoming. The food is awesome, you grill the meat yourself and the cheese and chocolate fondue is amazing. It’s also cheaper than “The Fondue Pot”.

…which brings us to The Fondue Pot! It’s quite the same as Little Swiss, but the ambiance is very elegant and it’s more expensive. However the service is very good and the food is of very high quality. This one’s in Heliopolis, off Nozha street.

Then comes one of Nour’s favorite restaurants; Blackstone Bistro! The place is simply high on everything; service, food quality, cuisine diversity, atmosphere elegancy; everything! It has a branch in Maadi and one in Zamalek and it is said to be a must-try by several food experts on Trustious.

For Italian food lovers there’s Rocca Razzo (photo above) in New Cairo, where the food is good, the place is elegant yet comfortable, and you can also get some privacy.

And lastly, Filini in Radisson Blu Hotel in Heliopolis. Quoting Nour; it’s one of the best Italian restaurants in town, although it doesn’t seem to get much notice. She says the place is also very elegant and the staff is friendly. Be sure to give it a visit!

Nour also recommends these places for regular couple-y outings;

We hope you enjoy your time, and waiting for your reviews afterwards ;)

Sending out a special thanks to our star Nour Naguib for her recommendations. We love you Nour!
