Still a superb Restaurant

It is ten years since I was last in Luxor and regularly ate here. Little has changed except we are all older. This lovely restaurant has just reopened after a short closure due to the lack of tourists. The service as usual was perfection, as was the food, which is a reasonable price. If you want... read more

The guy waiting our table was super friendly - though I felt sorry for him as he was the only person serving and the kitchen is on a different floor, so he kept having the run up and down stairs. The food was fine but uninspiring. A mix of Middle Eastern and European that seems clearly designed to cater for... More

Maxime is a lovely Restaurant with great food and friendly and warm-hearted service. I really liked the look of the building inside and out and the big choice of food, prices were good as well :)

Every time we visit Egypt (and that's regularly), we make time to eat here and have got to know the owners well. The food is delicious and excellent value for money. You'll get a taste of good Egyptian cuisine and the shish tawouk is really mouthwatering. Go for the Tahina as a starter - frankly, can't get enough of it!... More

Unimpressed with our hotel's lunch and dinner menu & wanting to spread our tourism dollars around Luxor, we decided to see what else we could find in the vicinity. We stumbled upon Maxime (it was one of the places open at 4pm during Ramadan) and are so glad that we did. We ate there three of four nights! Our favorite... More

My husband and I visited Maxime's last week. We had used this many times over the years. This year there were few visitors and we felt this had really affected the quality of the restaurant. Nasser is a charming fellow and did advise us on what to eat but we were very limited. This is a difficult time in Luxor... More
