“Easily of the best restaurants I've been to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

When I first walked into the place I had high expectations based on the cleanliness and appearance of the staff. My expectations were well exceeded. Sharif, the head chef and owner, has done a splendid job in handpicking the staff, and they embody a "customer is always right" attitude. They are super friendly and always smiling and most importantly are on top of things. Out of the five dishes Ive had there, I would rate four as excellent and one as good. Blackstone costs the same as a lot of the high tier restauratns in Cairo, but in my opinion the food is on another level, especially when Sharif is at the restaurant. In fact, he will replace anything for you if you are not 100% satisfied. Try the fillet with bacon mashed potatoes, DElicious. Or the spaghetti with meatballs.

“One Fine Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Great atmosphere, service and food. Also the variety is good. Totally worth the drive.
Recommended for couples, family or friends' outing. I don't drink alcohols but I believe they serve wine as well. Not sure about the quality.

“Seriously yummy bloody mary's!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This is the place of choice when my girlfriends and I have something to celebrate. Or even when we don't, but fancy a nice lunch with a bloody mary or two. The menu is extensive and varied, the food is mostly very good (for Egyptian standards). The Bloody Mary's have a real kick, are beautifully presented and very moreish. Service can be a little slow, but is always friendly. I've only ever been during the week at lunchtime but I've heard it is a great place for breakfast/brunch at the weekend as well.
