Also the service is perfect, very much looking after but not too sticky. Amazing variety of food and until now always great quality and freshness. The meat is great and they do know how to cook it on demand. Always a good choice to go there

Currently staying in Sofitel beside this restaurant and have now been so often that my husband is calling it our 'canteen'! Service and food is consistently good. Staff are eager to please and always on hand without being intrusive. If you require something altered on the menu then it is no hassle to the chef. Very reasonably priced and always good quality.

I have been there twice recently. I tried the beef filet with chocolate sauce that was very good. Also the desserts are very good.
Shame for the service: when you have eaten half of your meal they will start to come to your table every 2 minutes to take your plate.
Also the restaurant is BYO so you can take you bottles of whine. The lasta time they wanted to charge us the equivalent of 20 EUR as corkage fee for just two bottle. You would not even pay such an amount in London or Paris.
I might come back eventually.

First went to the Blackstone in November 2011, when visiting Cairo on a business/pleasure trip. There were 5 of us. We decided to go here as one of our group recommended it as she had been before and was raving about how good it was. And she was right. The food, the service, the atmosphere, all perfect. The owner even introduced himself and you could see he took pride in his restaurant, and rightly so! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the meal. So much so that when I moved to Cairo in January 2012 i could not wait to get back to the Blackstone. We even brought more people with is this time so they could enjoy it. And they defiantly did. We can not wait to go back again. Best in Cairo!

We dined here several times on a recent visit to Cairo. The restaurant is located in an untidy back street behind to Sofitel Hotel but was itself clean and well-presented. The efficient staff were unfailingly courteous.

The menu is fairly limited by Western standards but the food is good quality, nicely presented and tasty - especially their own soups and bread.

Not fine dining but a good quality, reliable restaurant at sensible prices.
