I just tried to have what should have been a leisurely lunch by the Nile in this restaurant. I ended up leaving because of the appalling service.

The staff were downright rude and refused to bring me what I ordered. It all just seemed like too much trouble for them to bother serving me.

It may seem to them that I am foreign and therefore passing trade so it doesn't matter how they treat people like me. However I am one of the thousands of foreigners who live here in Cairo and I shall not be going to this restaurant again.

Its such an amazing place by the nile. I went there with my husband and friends and we were impressed by the desigm and the atmosphere of the place. Very cozy and relaxing. We ordered desserts and coffee and they were very tasty. Definitely would go there more often.

Nestled below the walls on the side of the street at the Northern tipp of Zamalek lies this very nicely designed and friendly bistrot. We had heard about it but did not really know where it was. We only discovered it by chance while actually wanting to go to Sequoia next door.

The place is very nice, the staff is friendly, the pastries are great, the food was quite good. The atmosphere is great, especially when you get to sit outside by the Nile. There is also a playground for the kids!

This is a delightful french style cafe on the banks of the Nile. It is clean, modern and well run. The chef is French and serves delicious pastries and desserts as well as snacks and meals. It is not expensive and is really worth a vist!
There is a variety of comfortable seating to suit all tastes and a good selection of newspapers and books to browse through whilst enjoying a good coffee. I can recommend the Eggs Benedict. This cafe puts a lot of the 5 star hotel cafes to shame. Well done, Benoir.
