After seeing the view at the top of the tower, I walked down two flights of stairs and took a table for one. The restaurant was very clean, red carpet, and the waiters were suited and booted. The tables are nicely laid out with Egyptian embroidered table cloths. The menu was rather restricting for me, as I am vegetarian, no... More

Went to see Cairo Tower and saw this wonderful restaurant there - proving 360 degrees of city view. I had lunch at the place and tried a few dishes. Was pleased with everything - the food as well as excellent service. The vie of the city slowly changes as the restaurant revolves so you get to see everything.

Service is slow, food a tad expensive, revolving restaurant is also quite slow, so why go? One main answer: the views! Fantastic! Also, you don't have to wait in the LONG line to go down after dinner in the elevator, a big plus. The view is worth paying for. The food is okay, if expensive.

I have not stayed at this hotel, but some years ago, when it was the Grand Hyatt, I had a meal at the Revolving Restaurant, which was good. The Rough Guide describes it as one of the best French restaurants in Cairo. For that reason, and based on my previous experience, I have just tried to book a table to... More

The Place: It's a lovely place, panoramic view of the Nile, at approximately the 40th floor or so, it's just amazing! It rotates really slowly, to cover the full 360 degrees it takes a little less than 2hours. It's worth visiting at least once, especially with a loved one as it's a really romantic place, with very calm lights. All... More
