This place used to be a lovely on all levels and now it's down all the way in gutters. Terrible service, inattentive staff, horrendous food and to top it all off their prices have taken a good hike as well. Avoid at all costs, there are much nicer chic places scattered around Cairo offering the same type of ambience &... More

We visited on a week day. Shisha is good, the place is classy but the prices are small compared to same type of restaurant in Europe. I strogly recomend in order to see the rich side of Cairo.

We went here for dinner and were seated quite quickly (despite not having made a reservation). The service by our waiter Ramy Essam was great, he was very attentive and quick to action our requests (ie for beverages/extra food). The atmosphere was very laid back and comfortable - a great place to sit down, relax and watch the world go... More

This lovely restaurant is located on The Nile River. I went there for dinner and really liked the view and restaurant layout. The food was more expensive than other restaurants with similar cuisine, however this place is more comfortable and had some class. The waitstaff were friendly and spoke English well.
