A really nice evening was spent here. Gerda & her family made us feel extremely welcome and invited us to sit with them following our meal. The menu has a mixture of dishes including Egyptian, German, and Italian. The food is homemade and tastes good.

Gerda's Garden is a great place for an informal evening. Gerda and Wael are lovely hosts and make everyone very welcome. The food is brilliant and very reasonable. The 'fillet ' steak is one of the best I have had even comparing to top restaurants !!! It is a proper fillet not like in some restaurants. We dined there many... More

Went to Gerda's after seeing it recommended. It made a nice change and we had a lovely evening. Tried some German dishes and really enjoyed the food. Gerda and her husband are charming people and they went out of their way to be welcoming. Very handy from the Hilton hotel.

We stayed in Egypt for two weeks and we thoroughly enjoyed our time. We booked all inclusive which at the time we thought was a good idea however we were mistaken. The food was a slight let down and we much preferred going out to traditional Egyptian restaurants, on the last week of the trip Gerda's Garden was recommended to... More

Gerda's Garden was recommended to us a few years ago, but we only just got around to visiting. We had a lovely meal of soup, chicken and lamb shank with a tasty gravy and delicious mash. The restaurant was nice to sit in and the owner could not have been more helpful or charming. All in all, a very enjoyable... More

Good simple food - we loved the Egyptian food chicken tawek especially good, as was mousakka and falafel - and the service was very friendly and kind. Made a lovely break from getting a... More

I've been here a few times and always intended to write a review but didn't get round to it (apologies Gerda's Garden) This little place is worth the visit! If you're in the Hilton then go here for you meals; it's close and it's some of the best food in Luxor! If you're staying anywhere in Luxor go here at... More
