We ate here on our first night after making a e-mail res.
Our host Laura was friendly and made us welcome.
The meals we had were all different and we all enjoyed them.we only ate here once due to Laura taking her holiday and closing.will definitely return and recommend.
Laura also arranged for us to take a caleche out to ace,the drivers were excellent as we're the horses so could recommend this if you are unsure about trying a caleche as I was.
During the day the secret garden cafe also ran by Laura is excellent mmm egg+chips.

Having been to Luxor many items (and there are plenty of good resturants) I found the Jewel to have a good and varied menu and at a fair price.

The qualtiy of good and service was excellent and the hosts were more than friendly. A restaurant where you could get a drink if you wanted (not all restaurants serve alochol).

It is the type of place where you will always received a warm welcome, well worth a visit and once you have been I am sure yo will return time and time again

Sadly, I'm a procrastinator when it comes to my reviews but thanks to my handy notes I can still RAVE about how wonderful this dining experience was during my time in Luxor.

First off, how nice are the owners? They're wonderful.

I had the Chicken Tagen (lovely!) and the Lentil Soup (I wanted to lick my bowl)

Please visit if you're in Luxor. You will not be disappointed.
