Poor management and lousy service for a restaurant on Nile maxim. Rotana cafe had been much more lively and the team was way more professional. The place is disappointing in terms of food quality, service and atmosphere. Outdoors can be nice but the surrounding Nile area is dirty and there can be bugs and flies. Not recommended at all.

The restaurant was excellent. Very authentic and traditional. We used this restaurant on a number of occasions during our stay. Great service, good food which was reasonably priced.

Great experience to have dinner on this cruise over river Nile. The cruise is for 2 hours and includes a finger licking dinner and equally great performances by the hosts which will keep you at the tip of your chairs.

Being on the upper deck of the Maxim complex, we enjoyed the scenic view on the Zamalek buildings and the Nile river maritime traffic. The cold and hot mezze are really tasty. The service is efficient, discreet... More

Visited this restaurant with my wife and children but it was empty, we were the only guest there however the food is very tasty but with small portions and high prices. Anyways it was a good trial especially for the good view of the nile.
