The variety of offerings on the menu is huge. And by local comparison, so are the prices. But the bites are tasty, alcohol is available (not the case in all Cairo restaurants) and the service OK. But the location and views out over the Nile are wonderful. Of course, you have to look past the trash in the water. But... More

This restaurant have the "wow" factor! Fantastic location, at the north edge of Zamalek island, fantastic decoration and fantastic food and service. I went there for lunch, and end the night there having dinner! It was amazing! Great shisha and very friendly staff. The coolest place in Cairo to chiil out.

I reluctantly go here every so often because my guests are usually quite taken by the Nile view – which makes the trip worth it. But the food is very average – a tepid mishmash of western and Middle Eastern standards – and the service always, always, always poor. The waiters aren't rude, but they are spectacularly inattentive. Allow half... More

Nice location, average service and good food. You can get better local food at other places and cheaper. Too much people smoking. I understand that is part of the culture but you get tire of all the smoke disturbing you dinner experience.

The prices are quite on the expensive side considering norms in Egypt BUT quite reasonable considering the quality and international levels Must do when in Cairo;... More
