Good choice in Aswan

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

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
