Staying at the hotel, the main restaurant was unexpectedly closed, and out of laziness I decided to eat here despite the reviews. It served me right. Although I was the sole guest, service was nonchalant and the food was bad. I had the mixed grill, and the only thing I thought was good in it were the vegetables. I.e., the... More

The food was overpriced, dry and tasteless. The service was slow even though the restaurant was practically empty. On top of that…the bill was LE300 but when we checked the credit card slip they charged USD300. If my friend’s wife didn’t notice that it was in dollars we would have walked out being charged LE1500 more that the meal actually... More

This restaurant was in the pavilion in the winter palace,used it a few times,so was confused that it is now in the Nile palace both hotels are in the same hotel group, so I can only imagine that they have moved the brand name El Tarbouse as it was very good when it was in the winter palace.

As we were staying in the lovely Nile Palace Hotel we chose to eat here on our first evening because we were tired. The service is pretty good, albeit a little claustrophobic. The food is acceptable but nothing special. I have certainly had better for the same price in local Lebanese diners back home. It's really nothing special but it... More

lovely setting in the Sofitel nile palace. We love to have a selection of starters for our main meal. Slightly higher prices than local restaurants but great service and well worth the extra cost. Price about £12-15 a head when the exchange rate is 9le to £1.
