Good but not inspiring

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.

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

The Blue Restauarant in the Kempinski hotel is an amazing food experience. Not only is the menu varied and changing, the staff are phenomenal. The dinner, served until late, was a varied assortment of great food. The breakfast was a culinary buffet banquet with a large assortment of fruits and cheeses and freshly cooked entrees. The staff is the truly... More
