This place offers the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of busy Cairo, just a 15-20 minute drive from Khan El Khalili. This building is home to both Alain Le Notre and Studio Misr. Studio Misr offers diners outdoor dining with a stunning view of Al Azhar Park as well as the pretty glinting lights of Cairo's many mosques and buildings in the distance.

The mixed grill is perhaps Studio Misr's most famous dish - served still smoking, if you're feeling ambitious, the menu also includes other levantine meaty dishes and starters. Service was brilliant, we felt comfortable enough to stay for a few good hours to watch the sunset and the Cairo lights switch on. Tables and chairs aren't placed obnoxiously close to each other so dining with children isn't a mission here as it is in many other places in Egypt. Clean toilets are always a bonus.

Must visit.

Services is very slow! However food quality is acceptable, don't try exotic food, just order simple kinds, try the mix grill it's the best thing they have. Salads look nice, but I've tried the smoked salmon it wasn't fresh, so don't try it.

Noisey Cairo falls away as you walk through the city park and reach this unique and special restaurant. Quite possibly the best location in the world with a breathtaking view. Go at sunset to see the mosques of Cairo in sillouette. Sit on the expansive patio and enjoy the garden's water features and park below. The food is good. The service excellent. My only disappointment no alchohol is served. Btw, there's an excellent gift shop on the premisses

The place has a very nice view and ambiance but should improve the taste of cakes and sandwiches.
