Located on the fourth floor next to the swimming pool, Aura is a newly renovated restaurant in Cairo offering modern Shami (Syrian and Lebanese) flavours in an engaging and sophisticated ambiance. Unwind after a long day with a freshly squeezed vitamin cocktail at the back bar, and dine at the stylish high tables while taking in the beauty of the Nile. Aura buzzes with warmly decorated interiors, and nature's greatest canopy, the night sky, sets the stage for your dining experience. The restaurant serves both lunch and dinner in indoor and outdoor dining areas. SPECIALTIES Aura's menu offers an assortment of traditional hot and cold mezzahs, oriental grills and seafood delicacies, as well as signature Syrian and Lebanese homemade specialties such as chicken fetta, with a vast array of grills, freshly baked bread and manaeesh from the unique brick oven and exquisite Oriental desserts like the original kunafa and cream, boasting a one-of-a-kind medley of 35 hot and cold mezzes and salads.

Aura at the Four Seasons First Residence was a welcome sight for weary travelers. The food was very good, the drinks were cold, and the shisha burned sweetly. Couple that with Four Seasons service and you have a winner.

Most drinks are available, it is not usually that crowded, call the hotel and they will transfer you to Aura.

The restaurant area rarely fills up anyway. Call the Four Seasons to book as this place is within the hotel
