About Garden Promenade Café

Fun Facts

Stretching from the hotel's southern tower of Gezira to the northern tower of Zamalek, Garden Promenade Cafe offers a delightfully different take on dining here in downtown Cairo, Egypt. Enjoy scenic views of the lush garden, while savoring delicious international cuisine in the open air with family or friends. The statues in the surrounding gardens are the work of skilled French artists, commissioned by Khedive Ismail as gifts for Empress Eugenie and Emperor Napoleon III. Each statue was sculpted with one physical deficiency, as a means of expressing the imperfection of beauty (and the beauty of imperfection). In the northern part of the garden, guests will find a unique sculpture featuring four lions guarding a water fountain. This piece represents the Nile River, which is associated with life, fertility and development.

Khedive Ismail and his predecessors were keen to secure the Nile River sources; Ismail sent and lead several military expeditions to the southern areas in Sudan, to ensure that the Nile River continuously flowed through Egypt. It is worth mentioning that Khedive Ismail was fond of lion statues, as the lion was a symbol of the military triumphs he achieved during his rule.

A golden fountain on the southern part of the garden depicts a girl carrying a flowing bowl of water over her head. The palm trees in the garden are more than 100 years old, and are cared for by our dedicated hotel team of botanical specialists and gardeners.
