All Food and Drink


Though the poolside views of the city and the smell of fresh bread baking in the brick oven are enticing, the real star of Aura is the modern Shami cuisine, a delightful mix of Lebanese and Syrian flavours, best enjoyed at night, when the lights reflect off the water and cast a beautiful glow.

Tea Lounge

Sink into a couch beneath the mesmerizing, circular, stained-glass window and enjoy colourful, handmade macaroons and Valrhona chocolates or fresh salads and sandwiches. Our pianist provides the perfect ambience in our third-floor lounge.

La Gourmandise

Stop in for a light, pre- or post-shopping meal in our contemporary French brasserie located within First Mall, where brick-oven pizzas, quiches and puff-pastry specialties are perfect for a quick lunch.

The First Bar

Contemporary and classic, our sophisticated bar combines world-class wines, refined classics and locally inspired cocktails crafted by creative mixologists.

Char Bar

Dine with family or friends at our casual yet trendy bar, serving hot-off-the-grill gourmet burgers with an international flair. Enjoy paired with a cold beer or shake while your favourite match entertains on our flat-screen TVs.


On the First Nile Boat’s upper deck, our all-day Greek-inspired restaurant is the perfect spot to take in sweeping views of Cairo.
