Location is very good but service was under expectation although there is some nice staff people , portions are small the 2 stars are for location and some nice people but not for food or quality or value

Nice place, atmospheric location on the Nile and perfect meet... Try shis kebab, shis tauk and kofta... and off course fresh hot Egyptian bread (pie) together with hummus and tabbouleh salad!! Highly recommended for meat lovers! Certainly a must visit when in Cairo!

This restaurant keeps the quality of their food. I've been visiting this place since 2010 and I keep coming back. The view of the Nile is amazing and the service is excellent.

We were staying at the Sofitel and this restaurant was recommended to us. We went there twice for dinner. There is an area where you can sit outside and eat but we ate inside. We still had a terrific view of the river. We started with hummus which was very tasty. We shared a chicken dish and another meat dish.... More

Not only is the food excellent, but the location cannot be beat, right on the Nile! Sit outside in the evening and watch the boats sail by and the beautiful lights of the city while you enjoy delicious grilled meats and seafoods.

The views, location and fell of the place is great. Service is superior, everyone is helpful, well mannered, professional. Food is fantastic, kebabs are as great as they can get. Bread is the best ever experienced in Egypt. Quiet times are best to enjoy the views and the food.

A beautiful setting looking over the Nile river serving delicious grilled food. The seafood grill was particularly tasty and the fresh bread they serve straight from the oven is the best by far. Our waiter Michael was friendly and professional ensuring we had all we needed. This place is worth a visit day or night to enjoy it's fantastic food... More

An excellent restaurant in the Sofitel hotel. All the dishes were perfect and most of all the bread baked this very time in the entrance in the oven. Don't miss it even if you dont stay at the hotel.

I had tried nearly all of the restaurants in this hotel, and in the local area. Many are very good, so don't be afraid to stray from the hotel. However, when you feel like an excellent and local meal, stay right there in the Sofitel and go to Kebabgy! The barbecue is about the nest i've ever had. The ambiance... More
