Having stayed at the Kempinski Nile you find this place on their mezzanine floor. And we had breakfast here most days. This is served 6:30 onwards till 11. Their tables for two are a bit large and you have to talk loud to make yourself heard by your companion across the table (and others all... read more

This restaurant is of quite cozy and quiet atmosphere. The food is good with small portions, still not that yummy considering its highly-priced menu. It's good for a change if you're in the mood!

Delicious food and amazing view of the Nile River while you eat. The food is prepared beautifully on the plate for delivery to table. It looked so pretty I also didn't want to mess it up. But when I tasted it the food was so delicious. I recommend this restaurant to everyone! Great food for a great price. This restaurant... More

I recall we were able to get middle east/mediterranean food here rather than just western grub. I gave it 4 stars for the service. The food just wasn't memorable.

We went my family and inlaws to this restaurant during lunch time on the second day of great bairem. It was an open buffet which usually you think would contain mass produced tasteless food, but actually every single item on the table was unbelievably tasty and delicious. A very nice experience and the place was very cosey and clean. But... More

We stayed at the Kempiniski hotel and decided to eat at The Blue our first night in the hotel. The waiter seemed preoccupied. He was undecided about where to seat us even though there were only two other people in the restaurant when we arrived. He got our drink orders wrong. He walked away in the middle of taking our...

Best Breakfast in Cairo, the staff will cater to your every wish, even with my wife being gluten intolerant she was looked after by the staff.

Really simple: nice food. Try their Osso Buco and mezze. Quit atmosphere with reasonable prices taking into consideration its an international restaurant at a hotel
