Me and my boyfriend went there to have dinner and we were happily surprised. Not only the food was good in quality and quantity, but the service was excellent. The waiter that helped us did an outstanding job foreseeing our needs. We would definitely go back when in Luxor.

We visited here whilst on a recent visit to Luxor on the recommendation of our taxi driver, Handy . We were welcomed by Axel and Julie like long lost friends and the food was amazing - especially the home made steak and kidney pie which was served with mash and vegetables. The band with Axel on the keyboard were excellent... More

On our first trip to Luxor I researched a list of places to visit in the evenings and went to JJ's first as it was closest to our hotel. It took us until our fourth trip to make it to the second place on the list and that was only because JJ's was shut! It is fair to say that... More

This is a great place to just hang out, though the food is fully recommended as well. Axel and Julie are fantastic hosts. It was great, as a woman on her own to know there was a safe and friendly place to go outside of the hotel.

The owners are incredible, funny and talented - Romany the bartender is incredible and it's simply just a great place to hang out. The food is great, the upstairs restaurant is a must-see. You will not be disappointed at all.
