“Poor service in great surroundings”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

We booked for dinner and in spite of the fact that we dressed smartly the Reception insisted on charging 150LE deposit even though the meal cost 900LE. It left a bad taste even before we entered the restaurant. The service throughout the hotel was best described as average, especially as we had already dined at the sister hotel, The Old Cataract at Aswan, where the service was of a much higher standard.

“worth a visit”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

They suggest it is Silver service in here, which they do try to offer, but its not totally successful. But you can overlook this as the food is excellent and they are very attentive. Can be a little pricey so choose wisely, I always make a booking in here for a meal just for the atmosphere alone its worth it, the waiters where traditional Egyptian "death on the Nile" style attire great feel to the evening

“Old winter palace”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

Everyone should visit the Old Winter Palace, it is an old hotel, but has lots of old fashioned character. Food is excellent albeit a little expensive, but definitely worth it.

“Very High End Dining”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

Located inside the grand Old Winter Palace Hotel this luxurious restaurant is a must for distinguished palates. We where made to feel very welcome by the host and seated at a full silver service meal with all the glamour and luxury of a meal from a Jane Austin novel. The food itself was beautiful European style dining cooked to perfection. The top price range of the area at about 1200le for two people but well worth it.
