We had a delicious meal served in a family friendly atmosphere, which was excellent value. A point to note, the written address on TripAdvisor is correct but the map location has not been updated since its move to the new location in town, so use...the address to locate the restaurant. Well worth a visit for good Egyptian food.More

I went for takeaway lunch here a couple of times and the owner was really helpfil giving info on the menu. We also chatted a while before I left and he was a very genuine and nice person. So the food... Wow! The kofta was...extremely good and savory! Also they make the best Om Ali bread pudding. It was all very fairly priced too. A must try if you're in Luxor.More

We took a chance to leave the Hilton for dinner tonight and took a cab to Gerda's Garden. We though the food was like home cooking and a break from the menu at the hotels we stayed at over the last week. The meatloaf and...german fried potatoes were more than I could finish. Wife had the Goulash. Nice night out. Taxi R/T 160 LE plus 40 LE for a tip.More

I must admit first that I lived two minutes walk from this restaurant for 10 years. Also that the owners were and still are personal friends. However I am sure that the guests coming through during those years wouldn't disagree with me when I praise...this family run establishment. It truly is like a home from home for many of the guests that return time after time for the warm friendly welcome of the Egyptian owner and his German wife. Add to this the excellent international food produced in the quite small kitchen. A real gem of a place situated opposite the entrance to the Hilton Hotel at Karnak.More

Definitely recommend coming here for lunch or dinner to enjoy some fantastic food (western and Egyptian) at non touristy prices. The owners were brilliant at ensuring dishes for my daughter were free of nuts and sesame due to her allergies. My family and I went...a couple of times as the food was very tasty.More

Amazing food and service, probably my best meal in Egypt so far. Be aware that the restaurant changed location recently. It’s not near Karnak anymore but at Ali Ibn Abi Taleb, Gazirat Al Awameyah, Luxor, Luxor Governorate

NEW ADRESS! Check at Googlemaps! TripAdvisor has the old adress near Hilton. Super service, super friendly (they speak German if that‘s helpful for you), very good food, very original, good prices, very honest! We loved it and will come again!

We had dinner here one night during our stay in Luxor and only did not come back because it was our last night. We wish we had bumped into this place earlier in our stay as it is better in quality and more affordable than...other "famous" restaurants in town. The food was really delicious (best kafta we had, perfectly crunchy french fries), staff was nice and friendly and the ambiance is nice as well. Obs.: the address in Tripadvisor is wrong - they already requested it to be changed, but still no response. Just google "Gerda's Garden" to see the new location. Don't miss it :)More

This is my #1 favorite place to eat in Luxor. All food is prepared to order - fresh. The menu is extensive. No matter what you order, it will be prepared fresh for you at that moment. This takes a while to get to the...table, of course, but it’s always worth the wait! The hosts are always kind and helpful as well. I love this place.More
