“fantastic meal on the Nile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Took my wife here for her 31st birthday while we were in Cairo based on it's ranking here on tripadvisor and I'm happy to report that we were not disappointed.

The prices are high by Egyptian standards but for North American standards it was quite reasonable.

Everything we had was just fantastic, the mixed grill, seafood tagine, hummus and bread were all excellent.

The only thing to note is getting to the hotel is not the easiest thing, although it is located in the Sofitel our driver had a hard time finding the entrance as it is rather hidden.

“No the best in Cairo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

I have been to this restaurant several times. The place is very nice because it's outdoors and from there you can enjoy an amazing view of the city and the Nile. The food is very good, maybe too expensive for a restaurant in Cairo. In my opinion it is not the best restaurant in town.

“Simply delicious!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Great setting, awesome food, service could be improved.

Delightful freshly baked bread and devine mezze. Superb hummus!

Mixed grill (which is served on its own mini barbecue) was delicious. Eat up, or the meat dries out on the coals!

Love the lime with everything.

Service is hit and miss. Ate here 2 nights in a row. Some of the waiters were very friendly, others not so much.

Do yourself a favour if you're visiting Cairo!
