Even thought it is too hot to sit outside in the middle of the day, in July, watching the ferry boats ply back and forth reminds the guests that we are on the Nile. The restaurant is bright and airy, service is attentive but not overly fussy, and the presentation of the food is excellent. We enjoyed the Left Bank... More

This, by far, one of the best restaurants/hangouts in Cairo. The atmosphere is superb, the Egyptian food they serve is delicious. Enjoy your beer, cocktails and Sangria in a sophisticated venue along with amazing view of the river Nile.

The Ambiance is perfect with Nile on your side & decorated with Beautiful Lamps. if you want to spend calm soothing evening you should visit this place. The food was average compared to the cost.

I went to Sequoia for iftar in Ramadan and the atmosphere was amazing. Firstly sitting by the Nile at dusk is already a magical experience. They had put up loads of lights and the restaurant really looked beautiful. The food was good and the service was excellent. This is the kind of place worth visiting even if you're in Cairo... More

This seems to be the venue of choice for business meals for some reason. I don't know why. Service is spotty and so is the food. Maybe it's the atmosphere and good looking women. We chose to take dinner early because my colleagues had been in the field all day and had not eaten. We were promptly seated but then... More

Sequoia is a great place to go out and have good food in a relaxing atmosphere. This is a fine dining restaurant. And still has a 'laid back' air about it, where you can just sit back & relax. The staff is very cordial, and goes the extra mile to make you comfortable. The restaurant has a great collection of... More

I went here we a group of colleagues for a late lunch. The food is typical Egyptian / Lebanese, They order several cold and hot mezze. Taste is good, but not exceptional. i cannot comment on the price, because I was a guest. The strongest point of this place is its location and the setting, on the tip of the... More

One of the best location open-air in Cairo, at the tip of Zamalek Island that seem the end of a world. In pront the huge Fairmont Hotel stands on the other side of the Nile river. Tipical, fairly priced, Egyptian/ Lebanese food, you can find both meat and fish platter. The list of meze (appetizer) is as rich as it... More
