It might be hard to believe from the looks of it now, but Talaat Harb Square was once the buzzing centre for Mediterranean expats, soldiers during WWII and socialites in the 1950s. The Greek Club is one of the few remaining cafés that shares this history and has been maintained over the years.
Once a Greeks-only establishment, the restaurant is a popular hangout among liberal and leftist Egyptians, artists and expats. The outdoor garden terrace, towards the rear of the building, is enjoyed by patrons during summer months. The grand dining room, open for the rest of the year, is located directly above Groppi on Talaat Harb Square. Take a walk out on the balcony for a great view! The main dining room has a superior vintage charm with its high ceilings, tall windows, grand curtains and long columns.
The Greek Club's wide terrace is just the ticket for catching the evening breeze and watching the lights along Alexandria's legendary bay. The moussaka and the souvlaki are both easy menu winners, and the seafood selection (priced by weight) is excellent too. Order your fish Greek-style – oven-baked with lemon, olive oil and oregano. Alcohol is served.
