Was recommended by our friendly taxi driver and did not disappoint. Owner recommend what to try and we left him to it, soup, grilled chicken, beef in tomatoes & rice. All very tasty.

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
