This is an outstanding restaurant a safe haven for hungry travellers who are tired of the noisy and crowded streets in Luxor. The food is excellent, prices moderate, the waiters very accommodating and the environment perfect. In my opinion it is the best choice in Luxor and I recommend it to all travellers

We visited Luxor in mid November 2013 and were told by many to visit Sofra Restaurant. To go to Sofra was the right decision. The atmosphere is fantastic, the service was impeccable and the vegetables were bought for us straight from the market.
Unlike much Egyptian food we've had in the past two years we lived in Cairo not much oil and butter was used. The food was fresh, healthy and very affordable. We especially liked the lentil salad and the humus.
Luxor is suffering from the drawback in tourism, this made us very sad. It is a safe place that has so much to offer, mainly historically but now we know, also culinary.

Four of us had dinner here one evening and ate on the roof which is beautifully lit and tastefully decorated.

We ordered the 4 hot and cold mezzes to share which came in little bowls and then each ordered our main course along with our choice of rice.

There was only us dining at the time, but due to the FCO advice we have found this to be the case at most of the other restaurants we had visited.

Afterwards we were shown around the house which is lovely and I must comment on the toilet which was spotlessly clean.
