We came here during our three day tour of Egypt and it was a welcome stop from the heat. Although it is an open topped restaurant it has full shade and some form of air con to keep you cool. The service was very friendly and there was loads of food that kept coming out, more than we could and... More

We went to a couple of places in the West Bank. The other was the Crocodile. The Africa restaurant was clearly the better of the two. The curried chicken was very good. The other main dishes were good. Side salads were average. Quantities were huge (We only ordered 3 plates for 5 of us and still had leftovers). The food... More

The spot is nice and the food is exceptional for the price. The menu is pretty limited and you basically end up ordering the same roasted chicken dish that you can get at every other spot. The spot will not be crowded due to the lack of tourists so seating will not be a problem. You will get full from... More

Ash, our guide at YourEgyptTours.com, knew of this restaurant and took us there. It is upstairs, open air, with a roof over us and a swamp cooler blowing cool air. It was on our way back from The Valley of the Kings. They brought lots of food, different dishes, and lemonade. We ate it all! It has a view of... More

The position of this restaurant makes me want to like it as it is handy to sit in whilst waiting for ferry crossings and a good location to meet up with old friends. Weakened by the heat we decided to give it another try as it has been some time since eating here. Decided to go for a drink and... More

Perfect spot to relax with a cold drink after visiting the Valley of the Kings. Great view of the Nile, nice atmosphere and great service. Relax and recharge at this roof top restaurant. Sadly didn't try the food, will have to before I leave Luxor

Another restaurant close to the Nile on the West Bank with perfectly acceptable food, decent prices and cold beer. Would definitely visit again.

As with most meals in Egypt there was a lot of food (additional to your order they bring out dips, bread and salads). We found this restaurant was good value for money, and had tasty food. We went with the recommendation on the menu and it didn't disappoint. The restaurant is slightly back from the Nile on the West Bank... More

Beautiful views over looking the east bank of the Nile. Tranquil restaurant with comfortable seating. First class service and the set menu is a wonderful array of Egyptian food that feels you up after all that walking touring the sites on the West Bank.

We visited here twice, as the food was so good. However, we were the only guests, which was such a shame. Africa is just a short walk from the ferry so it's easy to get to from the East Bank too. Eating on the roof top is a special treat, as the views over the river are amazing. It's definitely... More
