Getting a group of friends or even just your family together for dinner is harder than ever these days. Between busy work schedules and everything else that could take up people’s time in a 21st century day, making time to catch up with your pals or parents, where everyone involved isn’t already booked, is tough. Then, even if you manage to decide on a time, there is always a debate about place. One person always wants sushi, another wants pizza, and a third wants some big piece of meat. And, if you bring kids into the equation, you’re bringing up a whole 'nother set of problems. Solve these issues with a day out at The Courtyard in Maadi.
The place is set up with some of the best restaurants you’ll find on this side of the Mediterranean. There’s Cafe Supreme for some light caffeination and sandwiches. The crazy-popular South African seafood chain Ocean Basket
, for those who like to eat from the bounty of the sea. Mince deals only in the finest burgers and their French toast is totally worth killing for. Then you've got Casa de Carne which satiates every carnivore's desire for meat and Cold Stone Creamery for dessert! Grab some pasta from Pottery Cafe or order more pieces of sushi than strictly necessary from Ogma.
There are more than a dozen restaurants set in the lovely scenery of The Courtyard. There’s even a kids play house so you can drop off the tykes and let them burn off all that energy without turning the restaurant into a jungle gym. They even have elevators to the upper levels for the mobility impaired. For those of you would rather work out than eat there’s an F3 Gym there too.
If you find yourself trying to find a gotta-please-everyone solution to the problem of going out, there’s no better option than the Courtyard in Maadi.
