Hands down the best restaurant in Cairo. Amazing food, spectacular view all at a reasonable price! It’s outrageous what happened to this restaurant that forced its closure. Totally unbelievable!!

Perfect location, ordinary dishes. I expected better service. Dishes are late by no reason!! The parking lot is a serious problem sometimes. It was an accepted experience.

Located on Zamalek Island with great views over the Nile River, Sequoia is one of Cairo's fashionable restaurants. Their tasty food offerings include Moroccan, Egyptian, Lebanese and Spanish cuisine. Decor is informal with welcoming sofas, tables and draped canopies. Service is warm and efficient.
