First of all, it is far from downtown, you'll have to take a 20LE taxi, and it isn't very easy to find a taxi back since it was located on a remote part of the Corniche, a deserted part. Second, it is a neo-modern restaurant that is trying too hard to mimic those restaurants in Cairo for example. First tell... More

The menu had plenty of choice. I went for something traditionally Egyptian, my wife had pasta and the vegetarian in our party felt she had plenty of choice. We can be quite fussy bug had nothing at all to complain about.

The food was very nice, the menu had a lot of... More

Modernly decorated restaurant could be described as "new Egyptian" and "Italian" food. Food 80%, but made up for by the view (go around sunset), service and clean and cool environment. Worth the trip a bit north from downtown Aswan, the Nile is not very cluttered here.
