Twice we stayed in Port Said and twice I ordered my lovely chocolate cakes in Gianola. Fresh, special unique taste, sweet smell mixed with coffee - early morning it was a milky fog everywhere that you may not even see anything 5 meters ahead. Exactly in Gianola we sat inside and enjoyed cake, coffee and observed how fog evaporated and the sunny rays filled in. Price is democratic. Later I have known that this is a family business since 19th century. So they kept traditions well - quality and customs are the priority.

I have eaten here several times. If you eat in the restaurant you will have a great experience with good food and friendly service. On a Thursday or Friday night you will have a long wait to eat because there are a lot of people ordering and limited Seating. I advise against ordering Delivery. We waited almost 2 hours for our pizza to arrive after they told us 45 minutes. When it arrived it was very cold and poor quality, under-cooked and lacking in toppings. You have to pay extra for Delivery and the driver expects a tip but the food is extremely late.

We were 5 people for dinner. Some of us had reasonable quality food. I myself was deceived by ordering Negresko void of chicken and my wife had burnt grilled half chicken. Be more selective from the menu.

Local friends who grew up and have lived in Port Said all their life invited me to this wonderful restaurant. While I had already discovered the wonders of Egyptian fish restaurants (cf. "Asmak" in New Cairo), this was my initiation to traditional Egyptian meat and poultry dishes. Everything was very tasty. The staff was very attentive, the location appeared clean and well-managed. Cannot comment the prices because I was invited and didn't see the menu.

We eaten there 2 times.
First time the squids grilled was wonderful, but the shrimps too much cooked. Second time the squids grilled was very bad and we don't know why, but the shrimps well cooked. Salad is nice and sweet complimentary. The fish outside is imported and most of them from fish farm. Sea bass and orates are the majority. The bill is higher compared with the other fish restaurant in port said, But cheap compared with European restaurant; around 20euro.

Does not start service till 1 PM.
Fish soup is very good with an excellent broth.
Fried rice is flavored with lovely sautéed onions and shrimp.
The sautéed fish (bream I believe) was perfectly cooked.
The shrimp peeled very easily meaning not over cooked at all.
Homemade hot sauce was to die for.
Reasonable lay good service.

Very beautiful and tasty pizza , it is only a take away place, no seated area. The prices are good, it's not taking along time to wait.

I have eaten European and American food, since I'm American, and this is neither. Was expecting something great from the reviews but this place was just disgusting. Food lacked taste, staff was all on their phones, wait was ridiculous. Be cautious about Egyptian reviews because most of them are done by friends of the actual owners. I learned this the hard way!

First Central Perk Cafe in Egypt ,Middle East and Africa The Place Where F.R.I.E.N.D.S Meet
I asked for a margherita extra tomato, the served me a pizza with gorgonzola , pepper and olives :-) but was nice, better than Pizza Pino. Central Perk is the only place I found in Port Said when you can see young people mixed man & woman. The sweets are very good, and other dishes are fine also. the personnel is very polite.
