This was my final meal in Cairo and I thought it was a fabulous way to end a great vacation. The food was excellent and the staff friendly and attentive.

What a terrific restaurant...great food and wine with the staff providing first class service. The beef salad appetizer and grilled salmon entree were 5 star worthy. And the wonderful retro vibe of the restaurant made dining here a very special experience.

What a surprise to find an elegant restaurant in an old building in Cairo not far from the Marriott hotel. A flight of marble stairs bring you to a quiet dining room. Food and wine were exceptionally good. Service was friendly and efficient. For a...starter I had a goat cheese salad. It was delicious. Warm bread and real butter came out of the kitchen as soon as we settled down. Entree was salmon with potatoes, mushrooms and tiny tomatoes. For dessert I had the chocolate cake which was divine. Too bad I’m going home tomorrow. Otherwise I’d be eating here every night!More

Not a single waiter or staff was wearing a mask!! Considering COVID did not end, and that is a high end INDOOR place, that is absolutely risky and not acceptable!! When we inquired about lack of masks, they claimed no one wears them anywhere! Needless...to say we left without ordering and went to a respectable place where the staff are wearing masks and guests are wearing masks except when eating. Totally not recommended!More

Went for lunch last Friday. We were the only people there until about half way through when a couple came in. I remember the earlier version and prefered it, especially the bar area. Preferred the old pricing structure to! Used to advise people staying at...the Marriott to eat here, but not really worth moving anymore, food, prices and atmosphere same as the hotel.More

We ate here in early January. I had a tomato mozzarella salad and my partner had a steak with mashed potatoes. Everything was fresh and tasted good. Nothing wow though. The bread basket with warm bread was tasty and went well with my salad. It...was clean inside and the staff wore masks. Tables were well spaced. It was very dark and got a bit smoky with smoke from other customers' tables blowing our way. I'd have liked it a bit more if there was a non smoking section. I would say this is definitely and adults only place in the evening. Not family friendly. The building it's in is very cool and has an old fashioned elevator or stairs. Lots of character! To find the restaurant you need to go to first floor.More

Fabulous decor and atmosphere, hidden on the second floor of an art deco building in Zamalek, extremely attentive and competent staff and a master of the house. The food was excellent and at a very good price. Tuna appetizer is a must !

This is the third time I dine in this restaurant, and I love it, love the building which reminds us of the old glorious days of Zamalek, as we saw it in old movies, love experiencing walking through the spacious entrance and using the amazing...old elevator which is still working, the staff are welcoming and nice, smiling all the time, the restaurant is nicely decorated, the food is delicious, and the prices are reasonable. I highly recommend it.More

We decided to collectively celebrate January birthdays . We booked a table at U Bistro. Valet parking available. We requested a round table however our request was not meet. Food is average I was not impressed although service was good and we were offered free...desserts. We ordered the Tuna tataki, veal tartare , tomato mozzarella, fresh fois Gras, cheese platter, Rossini Beef , sea bass , seafood risotto & tagliatelle. Average price around 800 egyptian pound per person without alcohol or desserts. They need to revive their menu specially starters and dessertsMore

We were walking around Zamalek and happened on this restaurant which is really five star. The prices are very reasonable, the menu is amazing as is the wine list. It was a busy night even though it was mid-week. The manager was just so attentive...and even offered us desserts on the house. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant which has a beautiful view of the Nile.More

On our last night in Cairo we walked around Zamalek looking fir a place to eat. We chanced upon U Bistro and Bar by luck. The restaurant is so much more than a bistro. Fabulous decor and atmosphere, extremely attentive and knowledgeable staff and a...very welcoming maitre’d. The food was excellent and at a very good price, they also have a selection of wines. It filled up by 9.30 or so with Egyptians, we were the only tourists so it’s a truly authentic experience. A must if you’re going to Cairo.More

We went there for dinner, there were 10 waiters just standing there looking at us, the place was practically empty. When we paid for our food the waiter didnmt give us back the rest of our money & decided to consider it as his tips...! This is unacceptable, we asked for it & he didnmt give it to us. It’s a shame that a good restaurant, although expensive has waiters that are not respectful ! I don’t recommend you to go thereMore

Very nice octopus carpaccio as starter. However, not a good attention for food intolerances as gluten and lactose. Despite mentioning these they served a creamy risotto (which was not described as such on the menu) and only after three times a proper answer was given....Too junior and inexperienced staff for such a restaurant. Has been better in the past.More

Everything is so unique since you enter the old building. Climbing up the stairs is easy. The smile in the entrance ensures a warm welcome. The cozy, stylish & warm mood inside boost your enjoyment level. Setting on the high table is good if you’re...coming for a drink but having a dining especially if romantic one will require normal table. All the menu is well served so don’t hesitate while ordering anything. Just make sure to book your reservation as early as possible as they’re always busy. A nice romantic experience that’s recommended for any couple or small group.More
