You will have to experience this setting for yourself. Perhaps one of the best views in all of Egypt. Nothing better then to sit and have breakfast in the morning on the Terrace. It is so quiet and peaceful and the view is amazing. Our breakfasts were picture worthy! The staff outstanding! I can't wait to return.

Was a great experience around 17h30 with a great sunset. Beautiful view. Good service and food very tasty. Deserves a visit specially at the end of the day for a drink or a meal.

We stayed few days in a hotel and ate 3 times in The terrace. Service was good and kind, but unfortunately the value osa not very good. Food is just average and prices are quite high. But well - stomache is full and we are not sick.

The view on the Nile is terrific and the sofas are so comfortable that it makes waiting rather insignificant. I was a bit suspicious about eating European-style in Egypt and was not expecting too much from the food. I was wrong, it was tasty, well-cooked and beautifully presented. The service was a bit erratic but very nice. Definitely a good-choice... More

3 hours for lunching is not acceptable. Unable to deliver medium rare burger. Nobody in control of staff, any request is seen as a major problem.
