What can I say. We have been to Luxor 4 times and each time we go for dinner at the Winter Palace 1886. It's usually for my daughters bday. The room is sumptuous and grand and if only the walls could speak so much history soaked in there. The food is amazing looks small amount but boy tastes good. Service... More

We booked for dinner and in spite of the fact that we dressed smartly the Reception insisted on charging 150LE deposit even though the meal cost 900LE. It left a bad taste even before we entered the restaurant. The service throughout the hotel was best described as average, especially as we had already dined at the sister hotel, The Old... More

They suggest it is Silver service in here, which they do try to offer, but its not totally successful. But you can overlook this as the food is excellent and they are very attentive. Can be a little pricey so choose wisely, I always make a booking in here for a meal just for the atmosphere alone its worth it,... More

Everyone should visit the Old Winter Palace, it is an old hotel, but has lots of old fashioned character. Food is excellent albeit a little expensive, but definitely worth it.

Located inside the grand Old Winter Palace Hotel this luxurious restaurant is a must for distinguished palates. We where made to feel very welcome by the host and seated at a full silver service meal with all the glamour and luxury of a meal from a Jane Austin novel. The food itself was beautiful European style dining cooked to perfection.... More

This French style restaurant had first class attentive service and all the trimmings. The ambiance was delightful despite the lack of other diners. The restaurant is in the old winter palace grand rooms and is a great place for a celebratory meal.

We had both dined here before, in previous incarnations but this was our first visit together. We chose this restaurant as it was a 'special' birthday for me and we wanted some luxurious indulgence. So, cocktails and canapés in the bar, a real relic of a bygone age. I almost expected to see Sir Winston Churchill and Noel Coward enjoying... More
