“This is the place to eat”
Reviewed 21 February 2013

if you have deep pockets. Charming and attentive staff - we decided to eat out on the terrace on a rather chilly evening but were provided with pashminas etc. The quality of the good is excellent. It does, however, come at a price - around £60 for two courses for the two of us - but it's worth it

“Best Nile View in Egypt”
Reviewed 15 January 2013

This restaurant is located on the terrace of the Sofitel Old Cataract Hotel. Perfect for lunch or afternoon drink/tea. The view of the Nile won't ever get better than this!

“Best (and probably most expensive) place in town”
Reviewed 28 December 2012 via mobile

We had dinner with a family of four. Given the cold outside temperature, we stayed inside ( same kitchen). The quality of the food is splendid. The service pretty good. When we finished our white wine, we asked for a second bottle, it took a little while to come up. The waiter (in a traditional Egyptian outfit) did not check the temperature, did not ask us to taste the wine, but simply filled up our glasses as if it was lemonade :). This was the only flaw. This is a real recommend if you are in for a quality evening with a nice ambience and an outstanding kitchen. It does come at a price though. We paid close to € 300 for 4 people. Tip, try the Marquiz (Egyptian) white wine, excellent choice.

“Magnificent, tasteful, utterly friendly”
Reviewed 16 December 2012

If you can afford 40-60 euro, this is a no-brainer.  Must see & must do. Beautiful place, utterly friendly staff and well prepaired food. Don't think twice.
