As much as we're spoilt for choice in Harrogate, we often find ourselves going to the same restaurants again and again. To break the trend and try somewhere new, we opted for Blue Nile and will most certainly be going back! Tucked above the Blues...More

This is a lovely little restaurant tucked away on top of the Blues Bar in Harrogate. Run essentially as a one-man-band, the food is home-made by the head waiter and service is casual, but that doesn't mean it lacks! The food is so so tasty...More

With an interest in Egypt I was excited about eating here but it took 2 days of strolling around Harrogate until I spied the sign. It's not obvious as it's above Blues Bar. Even when inside the bar there's no indication that there's a restaurant...More

The location is great, above the excellent Blues Bar, but whilst the Bar was busy this place was empty apart from another couple. The food was great and very well priced, but the service was so slow, suspect the one waiter was also the chef!...More

I've been to the Blue Nile on a number of occasions and it's always near empty which I just can't understand! The food is absolutely lovely, authentic Egyptian. There's plenty of vegetarian options although it's probably not a place for fussy eaters! I'd definitely go...More

OK for starters, I think some reviewers are confusing the the lunch time food in the Blues Bar with The Blue Nile Restaurant upstairs. the Blues Bar is great for live music and ale, but no, you wouldn't eat there. The Blue Nile is a...More

Came across this place by accident and thought we'd give it a try as we don't come across a restaurant specialising in Egyptian cuisine every day of the week (well not in North Wales!). What a lovely change from the 'usual'! We were greeted very...More
