The cafe and restaurant are located on the Cornish street around 7 minutes drive by car. The cafe on the ground floor doesn't see the Nike, yet the view from the restaurant is quite nice. The food and drinks are a moderate quality yet it is probably the best you can get outside a hotel in Aswan. The value for... More

Really enjoyed the food here. we had continental food and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Some of us tried their vegetarian buffet which had a variety of salads. Worth a try.

The kids have been fussy and we have all not been feeling like eating. Our driver called ahead with the order of Neapolitan spaghetti and when we arrived it... More

Even though they offer a'la carte dinner and lunch, I would rather recommend the open buffet. A good choice of fish, beef and chicken along with several vegetable, rice and pasta dishes. Mostly fresh and quite tasty. A nice salad bar but a not so good choice of desserts. The price of LE 75.00 per person must be considered as... More

The place is quiet and comfortable, the sunset view is superb don't miss it. Free WiFi available. They offer different cuisines (Oriental, Italian...etc). I ordered seafood pizza (medium size) it was tasty. The prices are reasonable and they accept the Credit Card.

I was asking about a place to hangout and eat dinner. I went there and I found out that the restaurant is not the same place with the rest of the coffee area. I would have liked to eat and drink and smoke Sheesha in the same place. Food was not bad but was not what I expected for the... More

The Porto Sono is a great choice if you are looking a place with decent food and a nice view. The buffet option is great, with a large variety of dishes. The place is clean, the food is fresh and the service was really good. Overall, highly recommended
