My Estoril in Cairo?

| O meu Estoril no Cairo?|

No centro do Cairo, encontramos esta pérola. Aberto desde 1959, pouco se sabe das suas origens referindo-se ao local como sendo de estilo Franco-Egípcio. Habitualmente frequentado pelas esferas intelectuais do Cairo, expatriados e diplomatas onde a discussão, sheesha, o fumo a inundar a sala e o famoso pão de alho são os elementos a evidenciar. Vejo isto e sinto-me logo em casa :)

Mas, ainda estou a tentar descobrir de onde vem o nome! Assim que souber partilho!
Alguém sabe?

We found in downtown Cairo this pearl. Open since 1959, little is known of its origins referring to the place as Franco-Egyptian style bistro restaurant. Usually frequented by the intellectual spheres of Cairo, expatriates and diplomats where discussion, sheesha, with smoke flooding the room and the famous garlic bread are the most know features of the place.  I saw this, and I felt right at home :)

But I'm still trying to figure out where the name comes from! Once I find out, I'll share!
Does anyone know?
