After an evening visit to Luxor Temple we walked past the place, when our tourguide wanted to bring us to a 'local restaurant' , 10 minutes away- what was 20 minutes and the only dish appeared to be roasted chicken. Since the menu outside Deans looked inviting, with 3 we went back and all ordered the beef curry with rice... More

Under new management, owners name Barakat. Excellent food, alcohol served, friendly, polite service and prices reasonable. Mother has mobility issues and the staff were very helpful and made her feel very welcome. Well worth a visit.

Revisited Deans in March. My first review didn't knock the food but Dean's attitude. So glad I went back to his new premises apart from the excellent food the place is small but charming and very very clean. Dean treated us like royalty he did not remember us from a few years previous for which we were thankful. His attentive... More

This is a must restaurant if you are going to Luxor, the food here was outstanding, and very fresh as you could see them pre-paring it as you waited for it. The steak was cooked exactly how you asked and the sauces were lovely. We loved how there was a selection of deserts which were home made, the strawberry tart... More
