Estoril is a cosy restaurant-bar tucked away in a Downtown alley. Stepping into Estoril, you will feel like entering a whole new world of peace and quiet, after the hassle you would have experienced outside. The place is small and it feels quite intimate. The soft lighting and the calm atmosphere provides a perfect backdrop for a laid-back meal. If you are not in the mood for mezzes, molokhiya, or any of the tasteful dishes on the menu, the heavy wooden bar in the back is a great place to have a drink or two.
