Get ready to celebrate love with their delicious dishes, including carefully selected prime cuts of meats, grilled pineapple, and a vast selection of authentic Brazilian appetisers and side orders that will make you feel as if you visited Brazil while enjoying the stunning view of the capital.

What better way to spark the romance other than with a Mediterranean-inspired set menu served with a marvellous view of The Nile? Whether you choose to dine indoors or outdoors, prepare to be amazed by the incredible view and fantastic service at the Greek taverna Zoé restaurant.
