We found the menu was great something for everyone, I particulary liked the wide range of egyptian food, Kofta was lovely.My hubby was happy with the european range and it was all good value and large portions. The drink prices were also very reasonable. Plus the fact it is in a lovely location right on the river side and very pictureque.

The recent visit of the French president (2010 or 2011) does not guarantee that one actually gets decent food. Of the varied menu only a few dishes were available..also only very few of the listed drinks were there and an orange jus took over 20 minutes to make and it hardly tasted like an orange. The quality of the food was extremely bad, probably straight from the freezer into the microwave and in a land full of great herbs, the cook only hit the chilipowder. The interior is rather depressing and so is the service...it may once have been a hot spot, now it is the worst place to choose for a meal and only a place for a quick and cheap kofta.....

The good news is—as the last reviewer said,—that the El Kababgy is indeed a great place to have a beer and watch the sunset. Unless they have had a change of heart in the last six weeks, however, the bad news is that it doesn’t serve beer anymore.
During the revolution of January/February, I was the only guest in my hotel and the only customer most afternoons in the El Kababgy. In June, I was one of its few customers. In October, beer was no more.
I have eaten there a couple of times in visits gone by. The service was good and food OK but rather pricey for what you get. In short, what really commends the place is the view; a great place for a quick coke or coffee but not necessarily a meal.
