This restaurant is a must while in Luxor. The owner even came in and checked on us numerous times during our meal and was lovely. The food was fabulous.. And the dessert was to die for! I don't think you could go wrong with any items on the menu!

My two granddaughters and I wanted dessert only as we had eaten earlier at another restaurant. The Lantern was empty but the outside menu showed English type puddings so we went in as it looked clean and smart. There was an English man who appeared to be in charge, he made it obvious he wasn't impressed that we were ordering... More

Every time I visit Luxor, I try to get to The Lantern as it is probably the best all-round value restaurant in the city. Food is consistently superb, service is outstanding - Debbie is a fantastic hostess and always remembers me (or does a good job pretending to!) The restaurant is quiet, clean and all staff are charming and friendly.... More

Not far from the Nile palace hotel, this place stands out. Debbie is always there being attentive and chatty with her customers and her waiter is excellent. This place provides good quality food at a competitive price with excellent customer service. Admit we went there three times in 9 days but it was well worth it for consistently good quality...

I had a few meals there and they were all delicious, I highly recommend the salmon with green butter. The place has no crazy service and tax charges that are very common in Egypt. The service was amazingly friendly, Debbie the host gave my friends and I free apple pie and custard when we went there. If you're in Luxor... More
