Went last year all ok we had an excellent meal with good service However in march we visited limited menu, went to order no fish no kebabs and no red wine so we left. The staff were in very short supply and had no idea of what they where doing. It's such a shame

We visit Luxor regularly and love crossing the Nile to eat at this top floor restaurant with its fabulous views of the East Bank. Get there by passenger ferry and walk couple of hundred yards (hassle free) or so or hire a boat from a West Bank hotel pontoon. Remember your torch. The Egyptian food served is always a bit... More

The food here is very good quality, and the service quick. Everything is freshly cooked, and nothing seems to be too much trouble. The fresh lemon juice with mint, in my opinion, is the best in Luxor, and have tried it at a few different places. Don't miss out, please try it ! Also the view over the Nile is... More

Four of us ate on this fabulous roof terrace overlooking the Nile. Such a shame there were no more diners but everyone is struggling at the moment. The view over the river is absolutely superb but the food was stunning. We had the most amazing Egyptian food that we chose to cross the river again later during our holiday to... More

Never stayed in the hotel, although it looks pretty fine for West Bank Luxor, but frequently visit it's top floor restaurant for lunch and dinners. Decoration is a bit funny and looks like a wedding cake:) but Nile view and Luxor temple directly across the river is amazing. Especially I like it in night time when lights and stars are... More

This restaurant has the best river views on the W bank from its high rooftop. Service is reasonably quick and efficient and the food is good. Recently the very long menu has been cut right down with pizzas and most of the Indian food removed. It's mainly Egyptian now, and not that wide a choice. Prices have shot up and... More

I highly recommend the west bank of Luxor. It is quiet and easy to get to, either by 1 pound ferry or 5 pound motorboat. Hotel El Mesala is relatively new, clean and comfortable. Wifi works only on rooftop, not in rooms. breakfast is good, and the staff can cope with requests. Pool is small and unheated but refreshing. I... More

This west bank restaurant and hotel has to be one of the best in Luxor. It is a few minutes walk from the local ferry (turn left and it is on the bank of the Nile-no hassle on the way from taxi /boat or Kalesh). The food is all freshly cooked and they are happy to discuss what you would... More

Can't believe no-one else has reviewed this place since our last visit here in April. Was so looking forward to eating here again, and we were not disappointed. Just take the ferry to the West Bank, follow the paved area on the left along the Nile, walking by motor boat touts, and a few taxi drivers. A smile and La... More

On our last night in Luxor we were undecided where to go. Decided to pop on the ferry, take a short walk to this restaurant, and it turned out to be the best meal we had all week. The panoramic view of the East Bank of the Nile was stunning. My husband ordered the mixed grill, and I chose the... More
