Restaurant details
Reviewed February 9, 2016 via mobile

We stayed on the West bank of Luxor and stumbled across Nile View where we stopped for lunch. With its laid back atmosphere and incredible views over the Nile and Luxor temple we didn't think it could get any better until we tasted the food, all lovingly grown and prepared on site by the lovely Mohamed and his family we were blown away. Normally we like to try different places to eat out when on holiday but we were so impressed we had to go back for a second taste. Thank you for your hospitality Mohamed and good luck with the school! Leah & Matt

Aptly named as you sit close to the Nile with a view to Luxor Temple and the east bank. Wide choice of food - omelette, fish , chicken, salads, fries, delicious onion soup.Sadan has a great sense of humour. I enjoy lemonade when it is hot or Nescafe with milk when it is cool in the evening. Reasonable prices.

Only had salad and dips but excellent quality. Loved to sit here and watch the sunset drinking mint tea, Staff very welcoming and friendly but not overbearing. If you are in Luxor you must take the trip over to the West Bank and visit this restaurant

A ferry ride over to the West bank one evening, and we enjoyed the best meal here of our week's stay. We were the only customers, as tourists are currently few and far between, but we had attentive service and excellent food. Good selection of mezzes, then a delicious lamb tagine, fluffy rice and pickled vegetables. Lovely setting, with Luxor temple just across the Nile, lit up at night. Fireworks are also very popular at weddings in Luxor city, and we were treated to 3 different displays during the meal! Even watched a kingfisher sitting on a boat mast nearby.

Tip: - getting the ferry back, don't believe the touts who tell you the ferries have finished and you need to hire a private boat! At the time of our visit the ferries were running 24 hours a day, although I believe sometimes they finish around 11pm. The ferry is an experience in itself and a bargain at 1 LE, approximately 10p., just be prepared for a bit of clambering over other ferries to get off.

Service was slow and irritating and something was wrong with the food as both of us were ill within a couple of hours of eating. Not recommended for susceptible tummies.
