Description: Restaurant situated in Sofitel Cairo El Gezirah hotel. Mostly patronised by locals and VIPs.
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

The place is located inside the Sofitel, there is a beautiful terrace outside, unfortunately weather was too cold to stay there. Inside the light are too bright, the music is live Egyptian very cozy.
Food mezzes are good, and the best main dishes are lamb chops or half grilled chicken or shish taouk. Desserts are not exceptional, they are average. Forget the fruit salad, it is made of apples and cantaloupe melon... That's it. Another think we did not like, around 11 pm the restaurant guy at the terrace put back the terrace cushions on our window blocking the view... Place to come but watch out for the service.

Reserve ahead for a ringside seat near the Nile and enjoy watching the disco boats with neon-flashing palm trees whisk by! Excellent Middle-Eastern food which inevitably is too much for Westerners - so under-order if you, like me, are uncomfortable with waste in a city with many living without.

When you finish your meal, take the time to wander through the Sofitel Hotel, there may well be a world-class free pianist or quartet playing in the foyer which you can enjoy for free.

Food was not cooked well and even the taste was off, we returned it and they brought it back worse than before, really bad experience.... It used to be a good restaurant

Sit on the edge of the nile and enjoy excellent salads, dips and grill meats. The Mixed grill is excellent and it is brought still cooking to your table. Great freshly baked Pita bread is outstanding.

What a restaurant. if you like grills this is the place to be. Located on a island on the nile it also has one of the best locations in Cairo. First time in my life I tried pigeon meat and it was awesome. Ordered for seconds. I would say this restaurant is a must try for anyone visiting Cairo. You will come back for more trust me.
