The English owner rather thinks that she runs The Savoy Grill when in reality the best-or worst- she serves is Egg and Chips. AVOID. AVOID AND THEN AVOID AGAIN

This place is as I stated, an oasis of peace in crazy Luxor. Laura is a fabulous hostess who will give you a warm welcome, and inside info on anything you need to know about the local area. Food is great, particularly the millionaires cupcakes. Wifi is free, with an excellent signal which is an added bonus.

A really good meeting place to meet and chat with friends over coffee and light meals, fabulously clean, and very relaxed. A good range of food for breakfast and lunch at keen prices. If you have never visited the Secret Garden you do not know what you are missing. You will always find Laura and Mahmoud helpful if you require... More
