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

Hi, I'm writing you here to complain about the horrible service my husband and I received at the kababgy restaurant today. If it wasn't that we just arrived from the airport and were truly starving, I wouldn't have thought twice before leaving. Due to the cairo traffic we arruved an hour later than our reservation time and were directed to... More

Their mixed grill is the best I've tried in Cairo. And fair priced. But the best thing is the place - take a seat in the evening and you will be blown away due to the location.

Good selection and good service. We had a reservation and were promptly shown to our table. The selection is good and if you like grilled meat this is the place. It is part of the Sofitel Gezirah complex and the view over the Nile is nice with a slight breeze which makes it even nicer when hot.

We ate there tonight while staying at the Cairo Sofitel. We showed up after 8 pm and the maitre d seemed put out we had no reservations. We were seated outside in the back with a nice view of the Nile, but not the best. Empty tables abounded throughout our meal, so reservations were not an issue. We were greeted... More

The view is amazing but it goes away and you don't get to enjoy due to the bad service by the staff. First they ignore and their attitude is not friendly and we did not feel welcomed at all. On the contrary, we felt they want us gone. Hope they improve so we can relax and enjoy the view.

The restaurant has a great setting on the edge of the Nile on Gezira island. The fresh made bread is fantastic. All the meals are very fresh tasting. The cold meza selection is bentiful.

You just cannot beat the view! You enter through a candlelit corridor with an large fresh bread station (see pictures) to family style tables feet from the waters of the Nile. This corner of zamalek stands in contrast to most of Cairo in that it is quiet and peaceful. The food while beautiful is good but nothing extraordinary. Enjoy the... More
