Living here for 11 years I have tried various places for my Xmas dinner but yesterday was the very, very best. The food was gorgeous, I must say a special word for the brussel sprouts which were cooked to perfection, mine are either mush or raw but theirs were perfect. There was every traditional offering, my companion had turkey and... More

We have tried many of the restaurants in Luxor but always end up using The Lantern. The standard of food and exemplary service make it a 'must do' coupled with the many other local attractions.

For those who are not in the know, Luxor is more than just the place where long dead celebrity royals are buried in the sand. It's a loose and modern pick-up joint where Miss Marple boarded the Love Boat for a cruise on the Nile and ended up meeting Harry Potter (I'm sure Dumbledores are welcomed too). This charming little... More

My husband and I have just returned from two weeks holidays in Luxor. We had visited the Lantern on our previous visit three years ago. I emailed Debbie before leaving Northern Ireland to book a table for the evening after our arrival. I received a lovely reply saying that our table was booked no problem. We ate in the Lantern...

Went with a friend who highly recommended it. He wasn't wrong. We both had the streak with mash and veg. Have to say, it was probably the best piece of steak I've had in a very long time! Both had the lemon meringue to follow with home made ice cream. Yum yum. Not the cheapest place to eat in Luxor,... More

This restaurant is a great find. The time we visited we were a little saddened to know that we arrived a bit early and the restaurant was not open for business yet, but being the sweet lady that she is the owner let us come in and dine. She did warn that since we were early that some items on... More
