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).

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
