A perfect place for bird-watching

With a small seating area by the water's edge, Blue Sky is the perfect spot for anyone interested in riverine bird-life. With views across the Nile to Luxor temple it is also a gentle place to relax. Interestingly when i was there a number of ex-pats who live permanently or semi-permanently in... read more

I wasn't that impressed with Blue Sky. I ate there twice just to give it a fair chance since it has such great reviews. The river view is nice, and it has a very relaxed atmosphere. It is by no means fancy, and consists of some basic tables and chairs scattered about a little riverside courtyard. The staff were friendly... More

A rustic cafe/restaurant right on the Nile - there are great views across the the temple of Luxor, and it's a lovely spot to watch the feluccas sailing at sunset. The menu is small, but the food is good and reasonably priced. Beer is available although it's not marked on the menu - just ask. Ahmed, the owner, was quiet,... More

We only drank here some coffee and other refreshments so I can't comment on food. The garden area in front of the restaurant is in very nice place though, amazing views to the Nile. The owner was really friendly, talking and telling about life in Egypt. He did not have oranges for juice so he went shopping them for us... More
