Reviewed 25 May 2017

This is one of Egypt's best fine dining/lounge/bar spots. It absolutely exceeded all expectation in terms of classy design, to the food quality and to the service.
The best thing about this place is the consistency in the quality of the food and the place as a whole (and this is considered Egypt's major problem, which is to have a new place with a consistent quality). if you have a business dinner, inviting A class foreign guest or going for a nice drink/cocktail, then that's where you would want to go.
I even invited a group for a private dinner and they arranged their VIP room specially for us with a separate bar as well. My favorite dishes are the vitello tonnato, beef carpaccio, beef with truffles, friend calamari & burrata salad for appetizers, and beef tenderloin, salmon steak, and sea food risotto for main courses.
The staff is very professional and they know most of the guests ad i asked why, they told me that they used to work there for a very long time, even the restaurant that was before U bistro, so they basically have the same guests from a very long time.

very nice restaurant, very nicely designed and beautiful craftsmanship. one of the nicer stand alone restaurants in Cairo.

Food is ok but could be better - ordered a Lamb rack, which was huge but cooked perfectly as per my request, the accompaniments to the dish though were not all balanced in flavour and presentation wasn't great.

One of my colleagues had the scallops and risotto which was very good.

Overall a nice restaurant.

Service was a little hit and miss - lacked consistency and attentiveness.

Location, You cannot recognize the bar if you are a new visitor, its located in a very old building without any signage, when you go in you will be shocked from the well designed atmosphere, the friendly staff, the great set up, the delicious food all of these can create you a wonderful dinning experience.. I will be back again definitely!!!

One of the best Egyptian night spots
if you want to go to a bar or a restaurant then you have both options here.
Food is very good, a bit over priced but portions are ok and the quality is amazing.

It was recommended to me so I went for an early dinner with a friend. It was hard to locate at first given it's on the second floor of a nondescript building with no signage. Lots was spent on the interior decor providing for a nice ambiance. The clientele is upscale and prices reflect that. The staff is attentive and polite. The problem is that every food selection from appetizer to main to desert was basically average! For the high prices charged, I expected much more of a culinary experience but it wasn't the case. It's a hip place where the crowd for now just wants to be seen! So it may all fizzle away if adjustments are not made!
