Steakhouses; the only place where you can literally eat a huge slab of meat, yet still come away from the whole experience feeling like you’ve just done something quite classy.

There are few things in life that are better than a good steak but with so many options to choose from, where to start? We did some digging into the capital’s steak joints to make sure you’ll never sit through a sub-standard chop again. There’s fillet, sirloin, rib eye and more – in short, a carnivore’s paradise. Vegetarians, we suggest you look away now!!

1- Charwood’s


Simply unparalleled meat. Charwood’s has long been a household name for steak lovers in Cairo and they are simply experts. Especially when it comes to their T-Bone steak, it tastes like no other.

Location: Sheikh Zayed (Arkan), Zamalek, Mohandeseen

2- JW Marriott Steakhouse


JW’s Steakhouse offers you the experience to try a tender dry-aged American USDA prime beef, grilled to perfection. Not to mention their delicious crispy salad sides. It all has to be tasted to be believed.

3- One Oak

There couldn’t be a better place to go and ‘meat up’ with friends and cook your own steak. That’s right, you get to cook your steak live in-front of you. While you’re there, you’ve got to try their Quattro Steak Skewer. You most definitely won’t be disappointed.

4- Le Steak


Located in the Le Pacha, their gigantic steaks will leave you rolling home in a full-on steak coma. It’s definitely not a place for those who are calorie-counting.

5- Lucca (Royal Maxim Palace Kempinski)


The perfect place for a savory flat-iron pink steak and salad. With traditional Italian scenes covering all the walls and decorated in a rich and rustic theme, it’s as if you’ve been transported. Definitely, a place where you can dine in style.

6- Buckets

Authentic, unassuming, maybe not the words that suggest one of Alexandria’s best destinations for fine foods but once you give it your attention, Buckets will leave a lasting impression for their juicy, perfectly charred steak.

7- Oak Grill (Conrad Cairo Hotel)

Besides the fact that they serve one of the best pieces of meat, the luxurious setting is enough reason to head down there.
