the food is a bit over-priced but of good quality, the ambiance is splendid and the service superb...don't miss out on the Royal Bar after dinner to enjoy a Howard Carter coffee

Yes it looks a bit like a small ballroom, but the atmosphere is fine, not that stiff at all. The waiters were very kind and efficient. We had the Egyptian menu, everything was good from the mezzes up to the sweets. We also tasted an egyptian wine, surprising but rather pleasant. A very good dining experience.

The normal Corniche dining area was closed when we visited, so we were sat in a room next door to 1886. The decor, tables, place settings and service were all the same as 1886 with a slightly cheaper menu and less pretentious dress code. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. I can highly recommend a visit

This is a lovely restaurant with beautiful surroundings and an exceptional menu. The food is delicious and served by attentive staff. Everything is top notch from beautiful table linen to piping hot plates to the exceptionally good food. I can recommend the lentil soup and the beef fillet These 2 dishes would cost £20 approx. Well worth a visit.

We were staying at the Palace and decided to "eat in" one evening. Not wanting room service we ambled downstairs to the Corniche restaurant. Last time we ate here (in March) they were using the breakfast room as the evening restaurant so it was a treat to sit in the room next to the 1886 with the connecting doors open... More

Located in a palatial setting with antique furnishings, dining at Corniche is an elegant affair amidst fine linens and sparkling crystal chandeliers. Dinner at Corniche served a meal that was ok. The fish tagen lacked flavour and although the fish was definitely mouth watering fresh and moist, given the abundance of local spices the lack of seasoning was somewhat disappointing.... More

Sorry - but both of us had terrible tummy problems immediately after eating at this restaurant. We observed food laying about unrefrigerated with flies in abundance. Not a good look!

This place should be good but it isn't. Dress code applies, could explain why it was almost empty and had a slightly less warm atmosphere that the tomb of Tut. Food widly overpriced, wine nutty prices and sadly, none of it more that just acceptable.

Pretentiousness is acceptable if food is up to it, which this restaurant's is not! Dull soup and uninteresting lamb, plus expensive wine and absurdly pretentious service. Needs a rethink!
