Good clean decent food in an A/C restaurant.

This is the best atmosphered, A/C'ed, modern restaurant in Aswan. It's a little ways off of the main Corniche north, but any taxi will know if you tell them

The concierge at the hotel and the guide both pointed to this restaurant and off we went there for dinner. If this is what one of their best restaurant had to offer, then I'm glad we spent just two nights in Aswan. But then the sights made up for the average dining options.
