Really enjoyed the food and great service. The only downside was that the restaurant's location in the hotel, as well as going before evening meant that there were not many other diners.

I traveled to Mexico last week and am in Egypt this week. Had great Mexican food in both locations. Maria's in Cairo has an expansive menu, great food, and hospitable servers. Both Waleed and Mohamed are courteous and attentive. Over the course of a couple visits to Egypt, I've eaten at Maria's 4 times now and have enjoyed each experience.

To my knowledge a genuine mexican dinner. Good tasting burrito. Service from Walid was good, made sure we had what we needed. It isn't Mexico, but it came close.
