That is a nice place for friends gathering. It provides a good range of food and beverages but the prices are a bit expensive.

Actually I tried the fondue once in Switzerland as it's the popular dish there. Once I found it in Egypt, I decided to try it and it's actually great. Same taste with more varieties. The stuff is friendly. The place is clean and cozy.
