We were given menus but then waited at least 10 minutes before anyone returned to take an order for food or drinks. It was another 10 minutes before the drinks arrived and they decided to remove the unused 3rd place setting. When the food... More

Great food and service, but the atmosphere was a little dull. Still, would recommend it to anyone staying at the hotel who did not want to venture in Cairo's traffic or who needed a quiet vnue to do business over dinner.
