Fodor's Review

Play lord or lady of the manor beneath the Venetian crystal chandeliers of this dining room. Candlelight is reflected on the heavy silver plates and thick linens. Twenty-three-foot-tall windows open onto a garden. In massive gilt mirrors, you can observe yourself or the other diners struggling with a gigantic menu bearing complicated French names that sound terribly pedestrian in their English translations. White-gloved waiters are a bit over the top, but the food is fine, if overpriced for Egypt. Dress up and go for the ambience.
