“Wow!!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

This oasis came recommended by a fellow traveller and what a fantastic find it was.
Fantastic food, freshly cooked and presented to a very high standard and at very reasonable prices. Ambience is wonderful and the service is second to none. The variety of food ranges from good old British grub, to local or regional specialities and staff will always try and meet any particular requirements.
Try it once and you will be smitten. Go on, spoil yourself.

“The best restaurant in Luxor - worth returning to Egypt for!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

There is only restaurant in Luxor that deserves top grades! Based on their service, positive and friendly atmosphere, beautifully decorated, wonderful and always tasteful food with daily specials as great addition to the already superb menu. For those who had enough of local Egyptian food, the Lantern provides not only the traditional English options, but also a variety of international dishes that can please any visitor. It is the little extras in everything that put this restaurant far higher up than any of the others!
Debs - the owner and hostess - with her kitchen and serving staff make every visit special and it is with great pleasure that we recommend everyone to pay them a visit - for sure, you will not regret it!

“Brilliant, fabulous, gorgeous - can`t wait to return.”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Debbie, Eileen and the staff are so welcoming and the food is out of this world. We love the Lantern for its extensive Egyptian, European and Middle Eastern Cuisine - you cannot go wrong. The specials on a daily basis are to die for - I think if you went every night for 1 month you would not eat the same thing twice. Debbie makes some fab desserts (if you have room for one) - she has given us a recipe which we will use in our new coffee/cake shop opening soon - it will be called the `Lantern Special` - thanks Debbie and Eileen you are stars.

“The best place in Luxor”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We have just finished our honeymoon in Luxor and what made this was the sevice and the food we had at this restaurant. Without a doubt this is the place to come if you want a nice meal. The onwer Debbie and the Service of Eileen could not be faulted service with a smile and as forn the food try the garlic prawns simply to die for. We would have know hesatation in spreading the word for this no1 restaurant in Luxor. I for one will be back here. It is wise to book your table here as it does get busy but the servise remains a1. Thanks for a great honeymoon with great food. Kevin & Carole.

“can't be beaten”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

This is DEFINATELY the best restaurant in Luxor. The menu is varied, all food home cooked and good English favourites offered. Good Sunday roast offered, and all staff friendly and professional. How Debbie wears her high heeled boots all night long fascinates me, they would kill me. Everyone comments on The Lantern favourably around the pool each year it just gets better! We miss the good cooking once we come home, long may The Lantern reign, it's the main attraction in Luxor, next come the historic attractions.
