Many guests like to dine casually, but I feel this restaurant warrants 'dressing up' and that's what I like to do! There is a French chef and I do like the variety of dishes. It may be a little 'nouvelle cuisine', but I enjoy those size portions - you are surprisingly full afterwards! The presentation of the desserts is beautiful.

The 1886 Restaurant is one of the restaurants in the Old Winter Palace Hotel in Luxor. There was a group of 12 for dinner and we received excellent service. The food was quite good, although the menu seemed to be stuck somewhere around 1986! After dinner, there was a special cake for our group, which was delicious.

The 1886 restaurant offers a gourmet experience that is difficult to find in Egypt. The hotel is an extraordinary building with a great history and it is still attempting with some success to carry on the tradition in grand style. The bar for pre-dinner drinks is wonderful and includes a fireplace, surely rarely used! We will forgive the serving of... More

1886 Restaurant is located in the Winter Palace Hotel in Luxor, Egypt and was opened in 1886. As you are seated large silver chargers are at your place and the flatware is fine sterling. The menu was inventive, the quality of the food, superb. Attention to detail was really evident by the service staff.. This is definitely a special occasion... More

The menu is sumptious, but my pressed duck was surprisingly flavourless. The gorgeous cake served to our group was by contrast both beautiful and delicious.

If your in Luxor, like fine dining and superb surroundings then you simply must eat here. Spearheaded by famous French Chef Menad Berkani the food is wonderfully presented and is fresh and delicious. Love it there.

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
