Description: Soho Square introduces a new and unique style of cuisine to Egypt The Caligula nightclub has been re-launched with a new entertainments concept. The hot rock dining and ballroom dancing! A piece of volcanic rock is heated for over several hours before being brought directly to your table. You then have the pleasure of being able to cook a dinner of your own choosing from a large and varied menu. Ancient cultures have been using this method for thousands of years, it is also very healthy as no oil or fat is used during the process, all the nutrients are sealed within. Hot rock dining is a very relaxed and sociable way to eat. There are no lengthy pauses in conversation when the plates of food are served and everybody "tucks in" as you cook the food at your own pace. This ensures that every last piece is hot and fresh. The whole method of dining becomes more leisurely and slower, where everybody tends to pause for conversation far more frequently. Only the freshet cuts of meat and fish are selected, you can choose from such sumptuous delights as Australian loin of lamb, black Angus beef ribs, Cajun salmon steaks, prawn and calamari skewers, plus much more.

“Hot rock is the theme - you cook on it”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

The atmosphere is great and the overall experience is less conventional but thoroughly enjoyable. The fondue as a starter is excellent if you are into cheese.

“ok but watch for the chicken”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

You cook your own meat on a hot platter - beef and seafood would be ok but we had chicken - raw chicken near the vegetables etc bit of a health warning.

“In the depths of The Savoy”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

Very comfortable. Fantastic meal. Good service. A great experience...but very expensive.
Don't forget to wear shoes as sandals are not acceptable. They have a stock of shoes that you can borrow, but the only ones left were like boats on my feet!

“Great rocks!”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

Part of the Savoy Hotel, themed Roman restaurant. Attentive service, excellent food. Either meat/fish which is bought to the table raw and your cook it to taste on a superheated lump of granite or oil fondue. Very tasty.
