“Great Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2013 via mobile

Went there for lunch. I had ravioli in a parmesan souce, followed by a grilled fish with rice. The ravioli would not have been any better in Italy. And the fish was delicious.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

The whole Boat is living off historical fame and reputation. It is not worth the prices they charge at all. Food is not that great, service is bearable, but food quality is far from being anything to dream of or for ... My husband and I do not go there anymore, as we were deceived too many times, by the food quality and the astronomical prices that do not commensurate with food standards and quality. Particularly that all chefs are local. Perhaps we used to go there at least twice a week. Once a year, because of being invited or so we end up going there....
Not recommended.

“Not worth the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

The view is good, the atmosphere is fine, the music can sometimes be too loud and you have to remind them. The food variety is large and you can even order from other restaurants on the boat three of which next door, on the same floor. The value for money is not there as the prices are as steep as if you went to the Four Seasons that have the foreign chefs to justify it, besides the sumptuous setting that the Pacha or Le Steak cannot compare themselves to. But aspire or claim to be superior. The matter that is to their advantage is that they have a variety of restaurants and are consistent on their food quality and standards.

“Best restaurant in Cairo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

Le Pacha 1901 has a wonderful setting, in a boat over the Nile, hosting several restaurants: international, French, asiatic, Italian, Egyptian local food, Indian...
The Steak has a wonderful view of the Nile, a warm decor and the food is just great. The Steak has an international cuisine that offers a large variety of dishes from entrees to main courses to desserts. The price is towards the high end but it will always be well spent as you get a very good value for your money.
Very well suited for business lunches or family/friends dinners.
