Situated in the Sofitel El Gezirah Hotel. Lovely ambience, both in the indoor part of the restaurant with direct Nile views, or sitting outside on the terrace with a shisha after dinner. Good varied menu of Moroccan salads, ravines and couscous, served in huge portions for sharing. Nice wine list. Staff are professional and very friendly. Prices are reasonable. If... More

Best view, best ambience, best deco and best Moroccan dish served in Cairo. If you want to have sheesha and enjoy Moroccan tea and delicacies, this is the place.

This is a rare gem in Cairo with consistently good food, great ambience and a beautiful setting on the Nile. It can get a little expensive if you go with the waiters recommendation as they encourage you to have hot and cold starters, cous cous, and a tagine which is usually too much food. Otherwise it is manageable and worth... More

I liked the position what I disliked it's that there is difficulties in finding a place outdoors for the Shisha! :))

This restaurant is fantastic. The food here is just so delicious. There isn't much Moroccan food to be found in Cairo, but when you live here, it is nice to have a break from the typical Egyptian and Middle Eastern menus throughout the city. Sofitel's standards are extremely high, and it is well represented in their restaurant menus. The food... More

This is my first visit and I was impressed with the ambience and hospitality. I was not too impressed with the food, except maybe with the Herira soup and complimentary starters and bread. The mains were OK, nothing worth the mention anyway. We were seated right on the Nile which was great, but worst bit is the loud feloukas roaming... More

The food at La Palmeraie is enjoyable (can Moroccan really be bad?) but the true draw is the Nile-side location, indoor/outdoor setting, and live Oud music. This place is definitely worth a visit if you want a nice setting on the Nile with lovely views. Move to the patio after your meal for tea, coffee, and shisha. Service at Sofitel... More
