Over the years, I dined here with my family or with my work guests, perhaps, hundreds of times.

This is our favorite restaurant in Egypt. Service here is always top notch and the chefs are wonderful.

I would definitely recommend this place for anyone who wants to have an excellent meal.

This is a fantastic place to have real Egyptian food with a breathtaking view albeit with a decent price tag!
While they have an open buffet option for lunch I opted for a'la carte and chose a typical egyptian dish for appetizers called Hawawshi. This is essentially minced spiced beef in traditional Egyptian bread and for mains ordered molokheya, again another Egyptian dish served with chicken and white rice.

After placing my order, I was served complementary vegetable soup on the house while i wait for the appetizer which i was a nice touch from the restaurant, the soup was superb. The Hawawshi was fantastic with the bread being very crisp and the portion quite large!

The main was also fantastic and served in a decent portion.

What i liked:
*The service
*The food
*The view

What i disliked:
*The food is quite expensive, especially when you take into consideration that you can get the same dishes outside for a fraction of the price, however that is expected when you decide to dine at the four seasons.
