Even though they offer a'la carte dinner and lunch, I would rather recommend the open buffet. A good choice of fish, beef and chicken along with several vegetable, rice and pasta dishes. Mostly fresh and quite tasty. A nice salad bar but a not so good choice of desserts. The price of LE 75.00 per person must be considered as... More

The place is quiet and comfortable, the sunset view is superb don't miss it. Free WiFi available. They offer different cuisines (Oriental, Italian...etc). I ordered seafood pizza (medium size) it was tasty. The prices are reasonable and they accept the Credit Card.

The Porto Sono is a great choice if you are looking a place with decent food and a nice view. The buffet option is great, with a large variety of dishes. The place is clean, the food is fresh and the service was really good. Overall, highly recommended

After seeing Porto Sono on Tripadvisor we decided to get in a taxi and head from our hotel. When we arrived the first impression is good. Clean and modern restaurant interior with lovely views of the Nile. After waiting over 10 minutes to be spoken to by any waiter (who were not busy at the time) we finally got a... More

When my sister and I go home to Aswan we treat our friends and family to Porto Sono all the time! We love the service, we love the food and we love scenic views! Will continue to go there as much as we can. It's also very affordable!

This is the best atmosphered, A/C'ed, modern restaurant in Aswan. It's a little ways off of the main Corniche north, but any taxi will know if you tell them
