Nothing negative except the value... It is too much expensive for no reason, it's around $100 per person. Tip: You can ask them to get you a couch. I like it more.

Atmosphere of the restaurant is very good, the view from the 41 floor is superb. The menu was not big, but had a lot of variety. As I was... More

Service was courteous and attentive. I ordered the endive salad as an app which was over-dressed and a little large. My main was a mixed seafood served with a tomato-based risotto side and... More

I visited this restaurant without having no clue of where I was going, well I know I'm going to eat somewhere... but not somewhere atop a high building in which the room is literally revolving.

The place is lovely and the view is amazing. The 2 hour rotation really makes a difference to your perspective of Cairo. The food is not that good for the price. You get better prepared food at GOUthe and Steakout for 1/3 of the price. The service a bit overbearing, but nice. Wouldnt miss it for the world though. Worth... More
