Stunning location on the Nile, we were lucky enough to also be treated to some fireworks from a nearby wedding. The bread is astonishingly good, great service, the grilled meat delicious. Live music also. Can't comment on price as I was being entertained here but a great experience all round.

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

Very friendly service, the Egyptian bread is made in front of you, great view of Nile especially if you go before sunset, they offer shisha if you like it

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.

Excellent lentil soup with a twist of lemon. Fresh bread made by a wonderful woman, directly from a rustic oven....best I had during my stay. 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 

Thank Albkk
