I have been several times to this exclusive cruising restaurant. They call it in Egypt A Must See. From entertainment, to food , to service ....nothing to compare. Food taste is amaizing. Belly dancing is an art.the folkloric show is incredible with the Tannoura darwish rounds. Not to be missed.

so apparently 9 friends having few drinks and some food are expected to pay off menu prices only because they've had few to drink....the manager's excuse was "sorry, we have a system glitch" to me this is not acceptable. stella menu price 55 LE. cheque price 65 LE. etc etc

We went on a Saturday night, which I believe is the end of their weekend, so the place was not even half full. Most people were locals, although there were some tourists as well. The boat left the dock a little after dinner was served. You don’t travel very far but it’s nice to see the bright lights go by.... More

Although very heavy decorated it is exactly what you are expecting to see in such places. The show was amazing. Belly dancing, local Arabic music, dancers... More
