Quality service, good view, excellent views!

Atmosphere is awesome. This restaurant is on the water, at the Sofitel Hotel. We had a view of the Nile from our hotel room (which had a balcony), so to be honest, eating on the water wasn't all that exciting for us, but if you don't have a Nile view from your hotel room, this would be a great... read more

We visited this restaurant twice on the recommendation of our client in Cairo given we had been booked into a dry hotel! We were treated to some fabulous mere, melt in the mouth BB!Q lamb & fish and possibly one of the best Nile-side locations in Cairo. It was lively to sit out under the stars with a warm breeze...

Sofitel El Gezira has the best nile view in downtown Cairo. Kebabgy, Sofitel's oriental BBQ restaurant directly location at the Nile, has amazing view and fresh breeze. Kebabgy has good variety of delicious oriental salads. Kebabgy's food is well done, which makes it an excellent lunch / dining experience. In addition, they offer very nice shisha.

Kababgy in Arabic means the person who make Kabab. So when you dine there you must taste The Local Kabab and other barbecue lamp. The food is delicious. Kababgy is one of my favourite restaurants in Cairo. The service is excellent. And staff are very friendly. I strongly recommend it. Enjoy. . .

The food at this place was excellent. Kebab grill was delicious and well seasoned. Nice spot right close to our hotel and very reasonable prices. A good intro to Egyptian food! Nice sitting outside overlooking the Nile

Excellent hotel dining!! Get the mixed grill, cooked at your table, and the combination appetizer. Very reasonable. Under order as the portions are very big. Open from noon to midnight, serving lunch and dinner. Do not miss this restaurant!
