There are a few nice restaurants, but in general I just loved the spot and chilling there with friends while having a drink.

View was very nice on the bank of River Nile but food on Baladin Restaurant in the platform was totally opposite of the view. Half cooked chicken 🍗 and food was of lowest quality ever. Wasted our time there. But, the platform is worth visiting...place.More

We had a very good lunch sitting right on the Nile. We chose one of their fixed menu offerings which included everything but drinks, which were on average about 50 LE. This was our last day in Egypt and it was a nice relaxed setting...to wrap up our trip.More

Great little restaurant at The Platform right on the Nile. Karim and the staff made us welcome right away, served a tasty lime and mint drink, and took our orders. Very enjoyable lunch on the Nile, and a place I will return.

I visited this place in May 2019 with a group of friends and was surprised, The location is great, directly on the Nile and the weather was fine. Yet, the food-in Baladina- was really disappointing, even the bread. They serve traditional Egyptian food, but they...got it all wrong. The service also was well below average.More

No. I don't think so. I was there during daylight and I paid only for my coffee. I entered the place for free.

I would recommend Shakespeare and Co or Balladina, but there are a lot of other options. If the group is big better make a reservation at least a day in advance. There should not be a minimum charge.
