“WOW!!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

This place blew me away.
A friend took me there for a drink and its amazing, absolutly wicked decor, a pool,camels, horse and ostriches in the back garden oh and 2 massive great danes who wander between customers to say hello.
It was fab, the staff were great so i took my family for a meal there and the food was out of this world,probably the best steak iv ever had and it even came with a little candle inside a tomato on the plate. My dad was happy because they were also showing the football on a wide screen tv aswell.
Would definatly recomend this place to anyone especially if you have children. A definate gem in luxor and very reasonable prices.

“TOTALLY UNIQUE!!!!!!”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

where do i start??? Genesis pub & restaurant is a totally unique place to eat & drink. the food is 1st class (the portions are hugh so you certainly don't leave feeling hungry). the steak melts in your mouth, the food is well presented and is fresh. Julia & Gamal (the owners) are excellent hosts and both are very knowledgable in the history of ancient and modern egypt. they will both make you feel at home and treat you like you are family. they have 2 gorgeous children, their son Adam & daughter Mackenzie, along with 2 great danes ( Elvis & Chelsea), 2 ostriches, a camal, a horse, 2 peacocks, a cat ( Prince) and an assortment of fish. on your first ever visit to Genesis one of the family will give you a guided tour where you will find their mini zoo (which is where you will see the animals, which are all well looked after) and also the indoor swimming pool. like i say this place is unique because i have never before been to a pub/restaurant with an indoor pool & mini zoo. my husband and i ate here 10 times during our 14 day holiday and we even took people staying at our hotel with us on 2 occassions and they all feel in love with the place. we would fully recommend the Genesis for both food and hospitality. thank you Julia, Gamal, Adam & Mackenzie (plus all of your staff) for making us feel so welcome.

“Fab food at good prices!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Genesis is in the Karnak area of Luxor and provides a wide choice of food. It is very popular with English tourists in particular but everyone is made very welcome. It also has a pool and Great Danes, fish and loads of other animals. Julia is an excellent hostess and will make you feel very welcome.
