The restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide. What a fantastic meal we had, the best fish and chips I've eaten. Great menu, stunning ambience and decor. The owner is always there and is an accommodating and friendly host making one feel like part of the family. The prices are very reasonable and beer was 25 Egyptian pounds... More

We have eaten in The Lantern a number of times over the years, most recently June 2016. Service is impeccable, and you are warmly greeted by Debbie, your English host. Food is varied - local Egyptian specialities sit side by side with good English grub such as steak and onion pie and lemon meringue pie. There are always daily specials,... More

What a wonderful restaurant, everything from the decor to the welcome, to the lovely staff, the superb menu and food, the prices and of course the hostess Debbie. I would so recommend. I went with Mr Anthony, a regular visitor and he was right when he said that this is a reason to visit Luxor- which quite honestly people should... More

There is no question that the Lantern Room has the best food in Luxor I have had the pleasure to have so far. I wanted a respite from the Egyptian cuisine and was told this was the place to go. I was really surprised at the Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura starter dish followed by very yummy Lemon Meringue pie. My... More

The aura and great food surely make the Lantern Restaurant a great place to eat. The owners are a husband wife team and he is the chef, his lovely wife your host. The food we had was wonderful and perfectly cooked and served beautifully. I ordered the Prawns and vegetable tempura and my friend had the chicken kebab. For desert... More

The restaurant was small, well decorated, in good order with a pleasant ambience. We immediately met Debbie the owner who was able to see to our every need with pleasant... More

Add in the terrific prices and there you have it. I went with my friends Raymond and Anthony and wow we were so... More

My wife and I have just returned from a relaxing two week holiday in Luxor which was much enhanced by the excellent meals enjoyed each evening at the Lantern Room restaurant. This was no surprise since for each of the past ten years we have had the same pleasure, now enhanced by the excellent service provided by a new waiter,... More
