Chef Theodor Falser's Gala Dinner

During the last week of April, a famous chef of Italian cuisine visits Maestro. Each of my experience was excellent. The Chef is really genius. I don't think words can describe such experiences. For the value, the price is reasonable. Highly recommended.

My Egyptian colleague and I were given a table "outside" the restaurant in the hotel lobby. 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.
