A place that I always trust and feel safe to invited friends a family and I'm sure they will find what they will like. I tried it breakfast lunch and dinner. No# 1 best buffet in Cairo.

Seriously, one of the best I've ever had and at a really affordable price. An incredible mix of different cuisines, such quality and freshness. If the waiter doesn't offer it up, be sure to ask for the ful, tahina, and fresh baked bread that comes with the meal. It's to die for.

Wonderful Egyptian food with huge variety of dishes. We loved the lamb and the veal and the traditional deserts. The views are also amazing, facing the river.

Zitouni has managed to offer the best of Egyptian cuisine. Overlooking the Nile, the variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes promises to serve the needs of all. The staff were very courteous, attentive and friendly. A shoutout to the chef who recommended the Alexandrian beef liver - thank you!

The most fulfilling brunch experience, service is great food is exceptional especially the desert section . It is quite expensive compared to other places in Cairo.But the open buffet was rich and there was a lot of varieties . You can explore Egyptian food at its best or you can have different international dishes in its various sections .

Excellent by all standards. Cuisine is generally Egyptian. The view, seatings and service are all excellent. Food has incrementally deteriorated over time but still very good. It is the best buffet in Cairo with no doubt.

We were staying in the Sofitel in the middle of the Nile and none of the restaurants were exciting so we thought the Four Seasons Zitouni should be great. It is #10 on TA. The hotel was a 10 minute taxi ride away and the entrance into the hotel is grand, as is the restaurant itself. They have a middle... More

The selection at every meal is nothing short of amazing. I wanted to pull up a chair to the dessert table. Breakfast and lunch are buffet only, dinner can be buffet or a la carte. Delicious. Excellent service.
