I found it a bit too stuffy, but the food and ambiance was wonderful. Its in the winter palace which is of course wonderful. The service is great - just make sure you want to have a formal dinner while on a holiday. You have to dress up etc

My husband and I stayed at this lovely hotel and had dinner in this restaurant and were delighted with the quality and ambiance! My starter was Foie Gras and my husband had Lobster Bisque. Both excellent! The lamb cutlets were fabulous! A lovely elegant restaurant with an excellent staff!

The menu offers interesting combinations of ingredients in most of the dishes but unfortunately they don't work. The lobster soup with asparagus, mushroom ravioli and dainty pieces of sole had a rich , creamy bisque flavour but was let down by tasteless mushroom ravioli and no sign of asparagus, not that a bisque should require it. My pressed duck main... More

Our first trip to this restaurant was in 2011, and we made sure to stop at this restaurant on our 2nd visit to Luxor. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, and the service is outstanding. Due to the low volume of tourists, we had the restaurant nearly to ourselves both times which added to a magical experience. The menu seems to... More

Beautiful ambience with great service and a good menu. The food and variety are well above average but go there for the atmosphere and service.
