Debbie , once again you and hubby made our stay in Luxor a good one . Your food never disappoints. We look forward to our social gatherings and our little tipples. Especially Baileys. The Lantern is the best in Luxor, what more can I say.

Whilst visiting Luxor last year I was recommended to visit The Lantern Room Restaurant. WOW! Everything from the décor to the food and the ambience and the service was faultless. The owner, Debbie from Englnd was a first class host and was very much in evidence each time I visited. I am returning to Luxor next month and I look... More

Restaurant was very busy and unfortunately our first choice of food had run out - our fault for visiting late on a Friday! Food took a little while to come out but the owner and staff both apologised and kept us informed. Our tagines when they arrived were delicious and served with a variety of Egyptian side dishes. Wine was... More

By reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I was sold. You are greeted like a welcoming friend. The food is freshly cooked, and their is a mix of european and middle east dishes. Do not leave Luxor without trying their fab lemon meringue, I have never tasted nicer, and to this day would go back especially for the dessert, but... More

Yet another 14 wonderful days in Luxor with the majority of them spent eating in The Lantern. I have been to this restaurant for at least the last 10 years and have NEVER had a bad meal! Debbies Lemon Meringue Pie has achieved Iconic status, but her Apple and Plum crumble is also coming up fast "on the rails". All... More

I agree with others. It is very clean! I ate lamb on egiptian style recommended by Debbie and raspberry cake as a dessert. Both were from micro wave very unpleasant heat ! Despite it worth to visit this place Krzysztof from Poland
