I notice that most of the top rated places in Luxor are English or European with the Lantern, Puddleduck etc.
Personally English food would be the very last thing on my agenda on an overseas trip but each to their own, I guess. Certain people like their home comforts I suppose.
However, Luxor's proliferation of English places does seem to have a whiff of the Costas about it which I hadn't expected in a city which surely attracts tourists for the history and culture.
And good Egyptian places do seem to be at a premium.
Can anyone explain this odd phenomenon (and recommend a godd Egyptian place) as our experience in Cairo has always been the opposite with visitors hungry (in every sense) to lap up the local culture. Even the Pavillon's restaurants appear to be western (one being Italian I believe?)
Many thanks guys.
