“Elegant atmosphere, excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

My husband and I enjoyed delicious dinners at Stefano on one chilly Alexandria winter evening. We are both vegetarians, so were very pleased to see that Stefano's offers sufficient appropriate choices for us to be able to have a delightful meal (Vegetarians know to scour the entire menu and ask good questions to find their best options.) The hand-made cannelloni pasta, filled with spinach and cheese, was especially delectable. Every part of our meal was prepared perfectly and beautifully presented.

Service was exceptional - attentive but not intrusive. We live in Alexandria, so have become used to the Egyptian preference to having to ask for waiters' attention; it is nice to sometimes have the sort of service to which many Westerners are more accustomed.

Stefano's is expensive, by Egyptian standards, but very fairly priced for what is essentially an elegant European or American dining experience. It should measure up to anyone's standards for a nice splurge.

The only drawback to this restaurant is that, despite its seaside location, it has no view of the Mediterranean. In nice weather that can be remedied by having before-dinner drinks or appetizers at Bleu, the hotel's same-floor bar overlooking the sea. The restaurant and hotel are both beautifully decorated, and there are many opportunities to admire the sea in public areas.

“Excellent Italian from the Four Seasons”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2009

OK I admit I'm before I went I was already a fan of the Four Season Hotel in Alexandria. It's nice to have a choice of world class restaurants with highest of standards in food and service. There's a good menu with typical Italian fare and an impressive wine list with a wide range of prices.
The restaurant is basically circular in shape with tables arranged round the outside. It has the feel of exclusivity and privacy. I visited with a friend but it could also have been suitable for a serious business meal, entertaining, a special occasion or a romantic dinner. It was fairly busy but diners were not rushed. Service was attentive but not overly so.
The lighting was a little on the dark side, but otherwise the whole experience was faultless and I look forward to visiting again.
