Nile city is a complex of different restaurants on an old big boat anchored on the Nile. We tried 2 of the restaurants, one Italian for dinner and one seafood at lunch. The Italian one had very good food in enormous portions. We took starters and main course but after the starters we were already full, pity as the quality... More

Nice place directly at the Nile with different opportunities for having a good diner. I had dinner on the upper terrace and enjoyed the evening.

Nothing fancy, the place was clean, I was at Studio Masr, not the best Kabab ever but it was OK, the view was great, the place was tight.

A little bit expensive but there are few choices of familiar restaurants to eat at. They have restaurants that offer seafoods, arabic & western dishes. Al fresco dining is the best. One downside was most of the staffs cant speak much in english but still they are very accommodating and really tries hard to give a very good service. We... More

Very good place. Parking is challenging though but if you're looking for a good time on the Nile bank, then this is the best place to be. Consider Halaket El Samak, a good fish restaurant, you won't go wrong!

Had an evening meal here with a group of 10 people we were surprised at the number of people eating here as it was very busy for a Cairo restaurant. There is outside seating overlooking the Nile as well as a pleasant interior. Service was good as was the meal, we enjoyed a meat dish. I would recommend this restaurant

The location of the restaurant on the boat by the river Nile and the Egyptian style together with the tasty food, makes it a good choice for lunch and dinner in Cairo.
