If you are staying in the Oryx Rotana, and do not want to go out, and the Hotel food is over budget, the Cellar is a really great choice. the service is great, the food is tasty, and the prices is fair.

I have to say that I have been amazingly surprised by The Cellar. Warm atmosphere, great hosts (thanks to Elsa and Lele) and the food... Yummy! From the starter to the dessert. Value for money? 10/10. I would highly recommend the Cellar.
