I visited Cairo at the end of February alone for 4 days and stayed at the Sofitel Cairo. I enjoyed THE most amazing vegetarian dinner and when I asked for suggestion both the Maître d' and the Chef came to my table to give suggestions. The food was so wonderful I almost didn't want to eat it. They say you... More

Judging by the fully booked restaurant when we arrived, this place seems to be quite trendy I had a couscous which I didn't like so much as I like the grain to be mixed with dried raisins which seemed to be impossible to obtain. My friend had the same and she enjoyed it. I sent the dish back ( but... More

I ate several meals here while at Sofitel. Fish was fantastic, the spices were unique and tasty. Service was good. I have several diners and one lunch, for lunch I had the Mongolian beef which was pricey and not great but okay. Wonderful views of the Nile from every table.

This is maybe just maybe one of the best restaurants for Cairo. The atmosphere, location, music, setting is just tailored made to the city. Cuisine is Moroccon, and it is good for dinner only. The food is served well and it all depends if you like Moroccon dishes. The location is just at Nile River offering you amazing view of... More

The appetizers are great, very fresh, lots to choice from, plus a sampler. The other meals are large, very authentic. Setting on the edge of the Nile, outdoors or indoor.

I'm a Sofitel addict, and have been like this for more than 3 years and in love with La Palmeraie, it's always my number 1 choice whenever I would like to hang out in a cozy and warm place by the Nile to listen to oriental music, eat Om-Ali, drink Tea and smoke shisha. Last Tuesday I can in at... More
