“Very Unimpressive”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

You have to pay 20,000 to go and see this, and i found it very boring, no real source, nothing impressive and just a load of people trying to sell you rubbish! really not worth going to see, when you can go further down the road and see a similar veiw from Mezzanine for free, and have a nice drink!

“Now called mezzanine”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

This is a tapas bar with a mezzanine floor
You can look over the NIle from the mazzanine or go on the ground floor if you wish to chill with a Nile,the local beer.
The food is excellent and the staff are very friendly and courteous
