I had a great experience in this restaurant despite the very slow service, but the food was very tasty. we choosed an indoor table because it was very cold outside it's not recommended to visit during the winter season I am looking forward to visit again in other season to enjoy the outdoor view

Stunning location on the Nile, we were lucky enough to also be treated to some fireworks from a nearby wedding. The bread is astonishingly good, great service, the grilled meat delicious. Live music also. Can't comment on price as I was being entertained here but a great experience all round.

Went there twice during our visit to Cairo. Sitting right by the Nile with a sheeshah and great Egyptian food and live music. Very enjoyable indeed.

Reputed to be the best lofty and kebab (Egyptian grill) in Cairo but add an amazing view on the Nile. Located on one of the five stars hotels sofitel you combine great delicious food with service. They have freshly baked bread that is exceptional and the Oriental salads are recommended. A must try on a visitor to Cairo

This restaurant has a beautiful view and great shisha and delicious dessert. Too bad it took the staff 45 minutes to even offer us menus. It seemed to be a common theme at the hotel during our stay - understaffed/or staff that were not interested in serving particular types of people.
