A wide range of nicely prepared food, the service is good; attentive, friendly and welcoming, and the setting is attractive. At times can get unpleasantly loud and uncomfortable - book early if you want a peaceful meal.

Blackstone used to be one of our favorite spots every Friday/Saturday, we have breakfast/brunch/lunch, depending on the mood. Yet suddenly a few months ago, things have changed, it started with: 1. No coffee because the coffee machine is broken; 2. No Orange juice because it's finished; 3. We don't have hash browns anymore, they are finished; 4. This and this... More

Good gourmet cafe with a reasonable selection of choices. Service is efficient but the whole place lacks atmosphere. Kitchen smells through to the dining area.

My wife and I finally stopped in for dinner here after several recommendations. The restaurant boasts a pleasant, romantic dining experience. The clientele appeared to be a younger, affluent group.

Excellent poached eggs and great cinnamon toasts for a fair price. The interior is a bit on the dark side and the doorman hinges on slightly annoying. But it doesn't spoil the experience, very good!

Blackstone was one of my old favorite places in Cairo for its effortlessly delicious dishes. I was craving it a couple of days ago and decided to pay it a visit after almost a year from my last dinner there. I hadn't eaten since breakfast so we ordered soup, shared a flatbread as an appetizer, and I ordered BBQ Burger... More

I had a very tasty Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict there, my friend had Blackstone breakfast and loved it. The overall atmosphere is amazingly classy yet kind of overpriced. Will definitely go there again.
