Website
Update restaurant details
Ranked #25 of 242 restaurants in Sharm El Sheikh
Certificate of Excellence 2013
Dining options: Reservations, Late Night
Description: Soho Square introduces a new and unique style of cuisine to Egypt The Caligula nightclub has been re-launched with a new entertainments concept. The hot rock dining and ballroom dancing! A piece of volcanic rock is heated for over several hours before being brought directly to your table. You then have the pleasure of being able to cook a dinner of your own choosing from a large and varied menu. Ancient cultures have been using this method for thousands of years, it is also very healthy as no oil or fat is used during the process, all the nutrients are sealed within. Hot rock dining is a very relaxed and sociable way to eat. There are no lengthy pauses in conversation when the plates of food are served and everybody "tucks in" as you cook the food at your own pace. This ensures that every last piece is hot and fresh. The whole method of dining becomes more leisurely and slower, where everybody tends to pause for conversation far more frequently. Only the freshet cuts of meat and fish are selected, you can choose from such sumptuous delights as Australian loin of lamb, black Angus beef ribs, Cajun salmon steaks, prawn and calamari skewers, plus much more.

Great treat to eat here. A bit gimmicky that you cook the food yourself but thats the fun and the food was fantastic. Staff will help if your not sure about the cooking thing and the restaurant is in the Caligular Nite Club room so it has a certain ambience about it too. Great night out.

The ambiance is very nice- romantic, dark with some background music. The service was top notch- very professional and attentive. Of course, we had to try the famous meat on hot stone. It was amazing! Very juicy, moist, flavorful and the presentation was very nice. Recommend this place to everyone for special occasion.

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The concept is great and the quality of the meat is up to the highest standards. We had so much fun cooking our own steaks to our liking - we ate every bite.

Situated within the Savoy Hotel this place reminded us of Las Vegas. An amazing setting, a bit like a clash between a Roman Colosseum, a night club and a movie set, but in a good way. Service as alway in the Savoy first class, and not bad value with two courses, and wine for two people at about £65. The... More
