With interior décor inspired by Fatimid Cairo, intricate calligraphic designs overlapping on the walls, highlighted by large windows overlooking the colorful hues of the sunset, and an endless panoramic view of the Nile and Cairo’s skyline to watch all through the night – everything about Zitouni at The Four Seasons Hotel Cairo creates a local Egyptian ambiance found nowhere else.

Whether you opt to feast on the lavish buffet that orchestrates dishes from every corner in Egypt, or decide to make a specific order a-la-carte; you’re bound to have a culinary experience that will take you all over Egypt and back in one night.

Start off with some cooked-to-perfection homemade authentic Mezzas. Freshly made eggplant “Mousaka” drizzled with ripe tomato sauce, Chicken liver seasoned with a touch of garlic, and the traditional crisp “Baladi Salad” to name a few – will get your senses warmed up and your cravings entertained. All the local favorites of Egyptian cuisine, served at world-class standards of Four Seasons.
