Let me be honest that the blue is the type of restaurant that has no stunning view overseeing the city or the nile or even the building next door. However.. However the type of experience you find in this place is absolutely outstanding! True 5 stars service Extremely friendly staff without being too overwhelming Great cozy vibes which is excellent...

As we were staying at the hotel and wanted a change from Egyptian food we opted for an easy meal here. For our 530egp we had a lovely plate of gnocchi and the seafood risotto preceded by a shared plate of bruschetta - they also supplied a small plate of bread and dips plus a small plate of smoked salmon...

I don't mind the average food but the horrible indifferent SLOW service is TOO MUCH. Maybe Kempinski needs to have a corporate customer service standards class for all their employees because they are WAY OFF THE MARK by international standards.

This restaurant is of quite cozy and quiet atmosphere. The food is good with small portions, still not that yummy considering its highly-priced menu. It's good for a change if you're in the mood!

Having stayed at the Kempinski Nile you find this place on their mezzanine floor. And we had breakfast here most days. This is served 6:30 onwards till 11. Their tables for two are a bit large and you have to talk loud to make yourself heard by your companion across the table (and others all around!). May be the waiters... More
