We were recommended the restaurant by a friend who said it was a good place to have lunch, so we took his recommendation. When we arrived we were shown onto the terrace, in a shaded area. We had a fantastic view right down the park, in the distance you could see the Citadel perched on top of the hill. We... More

This is a wonderful place to have lunch and take a rest from touring. The food is great authentic Egyptian food and the views of the city and the Citadel are amazing

This place offers great views and ambience. Definitely worth visiting for that. In terms of food we only had deserts because we had lunch elsewhere. I ordered a tantalising looking desert called "Kashtaleya with Honey". However, the flavours were not great but more significantly the main ingredient (which was in the name of the dish) was missing, honey...this was why... More

The place is indeed beautiful. It looks to be in Alhambra. The food at Studio average if not mediocre (We had to order a mixed fish grill for two, despite that they bring two grills). We went for dinner and it was empty. Waiters were sleepy, and could not speak good english nor explain the plates. While I was still... More

Great view and an open air atmosphere. Good food. Not so expensive. The best thing I liked was its atmosphere which is so lively! Gotta go again, should try it!

A very disappointing experience. Having read other (favourable) reviews we made the trip out to the Citadel View restaurant. Firstly, we had to pay an admission fee to the local garden in which the restaurant is located, despite arrival at nearly 10pm the gardens being invisible in the dark (unlit) and the gate attendant being told in Arabic by an...

The sweets are very well done The price is a bit too much (with Egyptian standads) There is no seating looking at the citadel, except stone seats in an open balcony that does not fin in Summer at all.

This place offers the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of busy Cairo, just a 15-20 minute drive from Khan El Khalili. This building is home to both Alain Le Notre and Studio Misr. Studio Misr offers diners outdoor dining with a stunning view of Al Azhar Park as well as the pretty glinting lights of Cairo's many mosques... More
