Right on the tip of Zemalek island, this open sided bar/restaurant has a hip groove & a chilled vibe, right on the water. Portion sizes are massive (although my local companions had no problem), and drinks are reasonably priced. Crowd changes over time - hipster lunch, well heeled mums for shisha after that and quasi business crowd for drinks

By any standard, this is a gorgeous place to eat/drink/have shisha, but by Cairo standards, this is a truly fabulous location. It's on the tip of Zamalek, so you have the Nile all around you. The decor is all white, it's light and open, and very stylish. The service is great, the traditional Arabic menu is delicious, they have a... More

Location - ideal, food - great, service - impeccable. One can find a cheaper place in Cairo, but hardly one with a better ambiance.

It was a nice experience, the atmosphere was nice and the place was clean. The service was good, food was delicious. Drinks were perfect. One should make a reservation in advance to make sure there is a place.

The place is spacious, the food is great, the variety of the food options. The view is amazing and being located directly on the nile makes the weather beautiful all year long.

Wandered in for lunch and liked it so much we came back again in the evening for dinner. Located on the very tip of Zamalek with open air views of the bifurcated Nile coming back together, the place is obviously a favourite of Cairo's trendy middle classes. Quiet during lunch, with a gathering of 'women who lunch' as well as... More

The place has the potential to be amazing. If your there when the weather is nice you get a 360 view of the nile, great location and view. The food is quite good, Middle Easter cuisine, they have sheesha which can ruin the mood for you if you dont like it. The service was the problem when we were there,... More

Not to mention the delicious starters, never made it to get a main course though, as I just love the nice grilled Halumni chese with some humus, calamari, etc...I could... More
