Nice view over the Nile and average but decent food. Choice of salads and fish or chicken. Only down side was waiter thought everyone there should all sit together on long tables regardless of whether they were travelling together or not.

Amazing value for tasty food. Awesome service and the waiters are very friendly. Menu is diverse and it has a good view of the Nile. It is the best restaurant in Aswan. Definitely would visit again next time I'm in Aswan

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.

I hope on my next visit i have better experience and that they... More

We stopped here for lunch while sightseeing and our guide took us here. From the outside it is nothing much to look at, but go up the stairs and through the doors and it's a lovely fresh airy restaurant with a very modern feel. We were made very welcome. The food was very nice, the menu had a lot of... More
