I stayed at Hilton Luxor near from this property. During my stay once I took my dinner here. Fortunately it was a Irish Night so I could have Irish Stew, which I found very tasty. The property has two floors, of which the lower is a bar space, where you can eat also, and the upper is a restaurant. That... More

Me and my boyfriend went there to have dinner and we were happily surprised. Not only the food was good in quality and quantity, but the service was excellent. The waiter that helped us did an outstanding job foreseeing our needs. We would definitely go back when in Luxor.

We were welcomed by Axel and Julie like long lost friends and the food was amazing - especially the home made steak and kidney pie which was served with mash and vegetables. The band with Axel on the keyboard were excellent... More

On our first trip to Luxor I researched a list of places to visit in the evenings and went to JJ's first as it was closest to our hotel. It took us until our fourth trip to make it to the second place on the list and that was only because JJ's was shut! It is fair to say that... More
