When we inquired about the food, we were informed that we had a choice of fresh sushi, appetisers and main courses. Again, the waiter verbally bombarded us with a list of food. Admittedly, it was impressive that he could remember so much, but we would have rather been able to take our time in contemplating the food over a written list.
We ordered the dishes that stood out to us; beef in pepper sauce (150LE) and shrimp spring rolls (90LE). A large basket of fresh, complimentary bread rolls was delivered to our table. Both starters arrived soon afterwards and were absolutely flawless. The beef was tender and cooked in whole black peppercorns and cut into bite sized chunks which, made it easy to share. The spring rolls were hot, crispy, incredibly fresh and served with two chilli sauces – one much spicier than the other.
Whilst we were toe tapping along to the chilled dance music, we noticed that, although the breeze was nicely refreshing, it is likely to get significantly colder over the winter months. Luckily, the bar is surrounded by sliding glass which will allow the venue to keep its rooftop charm even when it needs to be enclosed.
In our opinion The Roof Bar would be near the top of our list for nights out at the weekend or an impressive – albeit expensive – choice for a first date; it’s definitely worth the money.
