After 4 days on the Nile cruise with pretty much tasteless food this was a welcome treat! Perfectly cooked steak, peppercorn sauce, broccoli and chips. As well as Thai red chicken curry. Small and doesn't look much from the outside but I would definitely recommend. Two main meals with desert and 5 glasses of wine were around 470e£. Bargain

Another of our favourite restaurants, particularly Thai chicken and fish and chips. This is a small restaurant with an open kitchen so that food preparation can be seen. Baracat the chef and his two kitchen assistants along with Armada the waiter are welcoming and provide good friendly service. However on this occasion there didn't appear to be the same friendly...

Revisited Deans after a two year break. It remains a charming little restaurant with a very friendly host. You can watch your food being cooked in the open kitchen and the steaks we had were superb and other family members thoroughly enjoyed the soups and puddings. The staff go out of their way to please and are very welcoming. Like... More

The place is cozy but not classy even the tableware looks cheap. Waiters were friendly. But food wasn't tasty and overpriced, plus the quantity was not sufficient.

Sadly Dean has moved on to pastures new but the new Egyptian owner has the same chef who is great ... I had the classic fish and chips .. The fish was fresh and well presented although the mushy pies where a bit too liquidised all in all a good meal plus the apple pie and custard was excellent but... More

After an evening visit to Luxor Temple we walked past the place, when our tourguide wanted to bring us to a 'local restaurant' , 10 minutes away- what was 20 minutes and the only dish appeared to be roasted chicken. Since the menu outside Deans looked inviting, with 3 we went back and all ordered the beef curry with rice... More

Under new management, owners name Barakat. Excellent food, alcohol served, friendly, polite service and prices reasonable. Mother has mobility issues and the staff were very helpful and made her feel very welcome. Well worth a visit.
