Relaxed dining in a cosy eatery

Good selection of both European and Egyptian dishes served with a smile. Limited selection of drinks as can be expected but, if you wish to bring your own - no problem.

Here i have eaten just an ordinary meal, which was ok, and nothing to negative to remark on, but on the other hand not special. Soup as a starter, then the usual salad, humus, bread,.... As a main i had grilled chicken, again a ok but not special (served with rice and fries).

stayed at Hilton Luxor and took dinner 3 times there during my 10 days stay. There are 7 or 8 set menus and each comprises of 3 kinds of salad or pickles, main dish and sweets. That is why I like this restaurant much besides the taste itself. The price is, including one drink and tax and service charges, around... More

Any driver or any tour guide who takes you here gets commission, so your bill is considerably higher because of this. Each meal was 85 then they add their own tip and tax. We payed over 350 for two meals and drinks and our driver got a nice chunk. The food however was very tasty, very Egyptian, and the service... More

We visited this restaurant for a late lunch and were not disappointed. We went for the set menu of sheesh kebabs and grilled fish. The portions were huge and delicious. The lentil soup was absolutely beautifully seasoned. We loved the pita, hummus and the different salads that came next. The service was good and people friendly. However, we were surprised... More

During our trip to Luxor we picked the oriental food option for lunch and we had it at EL Hussein. The guys are very friendly and smiling, the service and the food quality were very good. We had Sheish Kabab and it was very tasty.
