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).

I had the fish and my husband the chicken. Great service although a tad expensive in comparison to other restaurants but the views... More

The dining choices on the West Bank are limited. Africa affords great views from its rooftop terrace, and the food is solid. I had a beef tangine, which came with various accompaniments. It could have used a bit more spice to my taste, but otherwise was a decent choice on this side of the river. The total meal came under... More

We came here during our three day tour of Egypt and it was a welcome stop from the heat. Although it is an open topped restaurant it has full shade and some form of air con to keep you cool. The service was very friendly and there was loads of food that kept coming out, more than we could and... More

We went to a couple of places in the West Bank. The other was the Crocodile. The Africa restaurant was clearly the better of the two. The curried chicken was very good. The other main dishes were good. Side salads were average. Quantities were huge (We only ordered 3 plates for 5 of us and still had leftovers). The food... More
