Food and service was good ..the only thing is there is a minimum charge to sit for each person which is 260 Egyptian pounds ..and there is really no need for that as it is a normal cafe with DG you dont have to pay all this to stay in a cafe while your are almost full and cant eat

Lousy service and average food & drinks. It took almost 30 minutes for the waiter to take the order although it wasn't really crowded, the order took more than 1 hour . We almost forgot we ordered some stuff.

It's a beautiful location, you can sit and watch the sunset on the Nile, enjoying the drink and shisha, and I think that's all. Food is nothing special, small portions, slow service. Ice-cream not bad if you are lucky enough not to have it melted. Sometimes too many noisy kids allover the place.

I went there last April. No doubt the place by the Nile is attractive but the food served there was awful. We ordered some soft drinks at first which were just average for the money paid, then we ordered some sandwiches with fries, sandwiches were cold, filled with salad, you can see barely chicken meat inside and the bread was...

Nice place with a great view and above average service. we tried the Oriental breakfast (the only breakfast they have) it was very good. it was Friday morning (10 11 A.M) so it was not crowded. staff was "trying" to be friendly sometimes slow but they are still above average. I'll try it again.

Nice place with a great view and above average service. Beverages are very good and food is not bad. If weather permits, try to take a table by the river side.
