I'm a Sofitel addict, and have been like this for more than 3 years and in love with La Palmeraie, it's always my number 1 choice whenever I would like to hang out in a cozy and warm place by the Nile to listen to oriental music, eat Om-Ali, drink Tea and smoke shisha. Last Tuesday I can in at... More

Situated in the Sofitel El Gezirah Hotel this restaurant has a lovely ambience, both in the indoor part of the restaurant with direct Nile views, or sitting outside on the terrace. Good varied menu of Moroccan salads to start, followed by tagines and couscous served in huge portions for sharing. Staff are professional and very friendly. Prices are very reasonable.... More

The food here is very good. It is open air, so no A/C, but you are right on the Nile, so it's fairly cool, and good breeze. Service is excellent, and views of course are great. At night, the hookahs come out. I don't smoke, and they did not bother me at all as this is an open air, breezy... More

Food is really good, service is inconsistent yet u can't resist the vibe, you will keep visiting the place anyways disregarding any other factors because the view is one of the best views you will enjoy during all your travels.. It's directly situated on the banks of the Nile with great views of Cairo and the oriental two level restaurant... 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
