Went there twice during our visit to Cairo. Sitting right by the Nile with a sheeshah and great Egyptian food and live music. Very enjoyable indeed.

Reputed to be the best lofty and kebab (Egyptian grill) in Cairo but add an amazing view on the Nile. Located on one of the five stars hotels sofitel you combine great delicious food with service. They have freshly baked bread that is exceptional and the Oriental salads are recommended. A must try on a visitor to Cairo

This restaurant has a beautiful view and great shisha and delicious dessert. Too bad it took the staff 45 minutes to even offer us menus. It seemed to be a common theme at the hotel during our stay - understaffed/or staff that were not interested in serving particular types of people.

We also had the entrees ( humus ... ) and grilled meat The whole meal was a bit too much and could have done without the hors d'œuvre... Nice, not loud, Arabic songs played by... More

Had lamb and chicken grilled which had a lovely presentation over fire and very tasty. Lovely views of the Nile from every table. Service was attentive.

This place has one of the best views of the Nile river in Cairo. Stick to the mixed grill and you should be fine. Service is ok but definitely could be better...

Beautiful location with tables right next to the river and the ladies making bread just inside the entrance was nice to watch. The service is not good. It took time to be greeted and offered a table. After about 10 minutes, one of us stood up to go find our own menus. And then it took another 15 - 20... More
