I tried the smoked salmon salad, the vegetables were bad quality and did not taste fresh. In addition, when I payed the check they didn't gave me the correspondent amount of money back. When I asked for it I didn't even get an apology from the manager.

A nice place overlooking the Nile. The menu is filled with a wide range of dishes. I have visited Left Bank with friends and enjoyed some coffee and desserts. Unfortunately, the place was crammed with smoking teenagers. Ventilation could be immensely improved.

I like left bank. I went there many times. Their food is good and service is pleasant. Their breakfast is amazing and Their dinner too. I tried grilled chicken lately and it's perfect. All what I don't like their the noise because there are a lot of teenagers and the smell of smoke as it's not non smoking area even... More

A great place to have breakfast with a Nile view. Very nice outdoor terrace. The overall ambiance was relaxing, especially for an early breakfast before work. It also has a kids area.

A very popular place with locals, especially for breakfast. You are literally on the nile bank, the view is great, and the options of outdoor and indoor seating its really cool. the breakfast is good with a wide variety of pastries and great omelettes.

Nile view of restaurant is more than amazing. Staff & service is very nice and neat. Food presentation, plates are very good but portion is a kind of small. It is satisfactory for families or friends' gathering.

Love going here for brunch. They have the best hash browns in Cairo! I also love their lattes and cappuccinos. Each time we go, we're impressed by their service.

This is a great place with a nice, cozy atmosphere on Zamalek. I often go there to work and hang out. They have a really nice terrace right on the Nile, which makes the place something truly special. The servers are all really helpful and attentive, especially Ahmed, who helped me connect to the wifi when I left my phone... More
