Nestling just off the bank of the Nile on Main St, this unimposing looking restaurant, like many of its class, hides it’s true best features.... the GREAT FOOD. Recommended by our driver Hassan, this open balcony roof garden restaurant brings you a great view and atmosphere to go along with their really delicious food. Our lunch time visit was alas... More

Located on the west bank, near the ferry terminal,Africa is a most enjoyable place. They have a set menu which includes starters, salads and your choice of chicken, beef, etc. It was really great. Add a cold Stella or two with a view of the Nile, and you could be in paradise. Don't miss it.

Africa restaurant offers you a set menu where you can choice the main dish. Limited choice means that the food is fresh.... a real plus in a city where most restaurants do not see as much affluence as before. The food is simple but tasty.

Food here is nothing special but it has a nice view. With little money you get a set meal, which includes salad, some starters, bread and the main course you chose.

This place offers good food, not complicated and very tasty. The set menu offer good choices. Located on the less touristy west bank, with a nice view of the Nile and the east bank. We stayed in Luxor for 3 days and came here for dinner everyday. The manager Tayeb, who's our friend now, was an awesome host and we... More

The food here was delicious and I was so glad that our guide recommended here! All we had to pay for was drinks so I think it was part of our package. This was a lovely meal and I would come here again

Came here for dinner our first night in Luxor.. Has a great view. The service was good but the food lacked taste. We each ordered. Schwarzwald,me beef my son had chicken.. Neither had any real taste, both were bland. The tahini was watery. The only dish with any taste was the tomato based soup for starters.

We were in a large group (11) and dined here one night after touring. The food was delicious and the staff is very attentive. We all enjoyed our meals and the night air of Luxor as we dined on the outdoor deck area (although you might prefer to be indoors if it's a busy night and more noisy).

We were shown this rooftop restaurant by our local hotel and not only did we have a lovely meal we enjoyed the fabulous views of the Nile. A must if you are staying on the West Bank. I had the fish and my husband the chicken. Great service although a tad expensive in comparison to other restaurants but the views... More
