“Sizzling Hot Egyptian food which is a joy to eat.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

We called again to see all our friends at Africa restaurant. Since the untimely death of Mr. Ali, the family have really continued all the values that he held, and the food although basic Egyptian, is both delicious and plentiful. We will certainly be visiting again when come in October.

“arghhh”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

We love local food, but expect it to be prepared with some care. The chicken was completely overcooked, the lamb was probably what they owners had for dinner that night, and the wine had been ruined by heat. Nice view onto the Nile, but the place was really filthy. You can do better and still enjoy local cuisine.

“Super.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

In Luxor with friends and this restaurant had been recommended as somewhere not to miss. A great experience. Went over by the Peoples's Ferry, and loved the atmosphere here. Up a couple of flights of stairs, sat "outside" looking over the Nile on a lovely warm evening - aren't they all? - and thoroughly enjoyed the set menu for about £5 each for 3 courses. Superb aubergines in batter, plus bread and dips, choice of gorgeous mains and a pud included. Leisurely stroll back, great evening, A must do.

“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

There is only a set menu at this restaurant but very good value - start with a mezze to share and then a choice of dishes - we both had fish in breadcrumbs finished by a dessert of semolina cake.

“Visit to the Africa Rooftop Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

We have visited this Restaurant probably the most since we moved to Luxor. The food is very good, with traditional Egyptian food on the menu, everything is cooked fresh that day. Mohamed and staff are also very good, giving a friendly and professional service. You can enjoy a drink of the local Stella beer also while you sit and relax, there are superb views of the Nile, and local street life. Possibly the best views after sunset. Specialty on the menu Duck a La Orange, we have had this and it was superb, with friends for our wedding anniversary. (You need to prebook this).
