Awesome experience, but not best food

I joined the night cruise, the ship itself is so great by all means, decoration, tables and chairs, facilities, the service is also great. I enjoyed the view of Nile and the traditional performances, but the food was not various, only few types of meals, plus the drinks were not included in the... read more

I used to go to this restaurant the last 3 years. I have been there for more than 10 times (most of them as business dinners to satisfy foreign visitors) but I feel that the experience is becoming worse and worse....I will speak about my last visit. Let's start with the food. The taste is ok, but not something special.... More

In spite the trip duration is very limited (two hours) but it is really enjoyable. The food is okay but the main attractive thing is the view It is round trip within 2 km in the river Nile, you will enjoy seeing different places on the river. The problem in these days is the security issues in Egypt especially for... More

According to the price of the 5 star restaurant it wasn't what we expected. We have booked it as Valentine's Day dinner to make it special. The tables were not well organised, so from some certain points you cannot even see the small stage in the middle. It is buffet, but the waiters will serve you the drink. My husband... More

This was suppose to be a dinner cruise on the nile in Cairo. Unfortunately the boat, the food and the entertainment can best be described as tacky, and that would be complimentary. It is a buffet and when the start gun fires the mob descends on the very ordinary food. The drinks are expensive and small. The entertainment is a... More

The whole setup of the boat and all was really good. The interiors and setup of the place was good. The food not really happening, I wish there was a better variety and local. The entertainment, the tanour and the belle dancing was good. They had a stand up comedian who was speaking in Arabic, that needs to be looked... More

The moment the entrance is in view you start an exciting journey surrounded by the colorful beauty of ancient Egypt. The ship is beautifully decorated and furnished in ancient Egyptian style. Food is enjoyable. The upper deck is fantastic to enjoy the splendour of the Nile and Cairo at sunset. The belly dancing and live music adds to this lovely... More

Loved the atmosphere created. Good food with belly dances and local music. The drum beats are unique. The river alone is magical. Specially in the night. The ride lasted for about 2 hours. Only hitch is, it gets way too crowded with not enough space to move around and the souvenir pics are charged a packet. But all in all,... More

The Pharaohs restaurant & Nile cruise was a nice time, albeit very touristy. The buffet style dinner was an opportunity to try many different Egyptian dishes and a Nile River boat ride was something I really wanted to do as well. The food was tasty but I don't recall anything that really stood out. The entire staff on the boat... More

This was a very neat experience. Great food, great scenery, great music, and ok performers. I would have enjoyed this just as much without the performers. That being said, I love soaking in the scenery more than I do shows. I would definitely go back for the food and scenery alone.
