The room is huge with a very high dome but the lighting, the different levels, and the structured paintwork make it look intimate and luxurious. The formidable lady who is the maître d'hôtel runs the place like clockwork. We liked her a lot for her intelligence, her strong personality, and the fact she is a woman in power in a male-dominated society--congratulations to Accor for promoting her. There should be more like her. The food is good (we went there 4 times) and I particularly recommend the foie gras poêlé (worthy of a good French or Hungarian chef) and the duck magret (they will cook it rare if you ask) but the shrimps or sea bass are good too. We tried the menu once and liked it but we were hooked to the foie gras. The Egyptian wines, white and red, are more than acceptable and I recommend them because the French wines on offer are understandably expensive and must be affected by the climate and transport. Our one and only regret is the fact the dress code is not enforced as it should be (e.g. jeans, no jacket, no tie). We were in evening dress (tuxedo and ball gown respectively) and we felt a bit out of place. So PLEASE dress up if you go there otherwise go to the Oriental or the Terrace.
