“A very pleasant place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2013

The menu had plenty of choice. I went for something traditionally Egyptian, my wife had pasta and the vegetarian in our party felt she had plenty of choice. We can be quite fussy bug had nothing at all to complain about.

“Good but i expected more.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2013

It is in a really beautiful place and have a very good panoramic view, and as it is one of the best Restaurants in Aswan, i found the service good but the quality of what i demanded was normal and not what i expected to be superb. I hope on my next visit i have better experience and that they increase the quality.

“Good food, great views.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012 via mobile

We stopped here for lunch while sightseeing and our guide took us here. From the outside it is nothing much to look at, but go up the stairs and through the doors and it's a lovely fresh airy restaurant with a very modern feel. We were made very welcome.
The food was very nice, the menu had a lot of choice and even our fussy kids were happy.
The toilets were very clean.
I would happily recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Great Escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2011

Modernly decorated restaurant could be described as "new Egyptian" and "Italian" food. Food 80%, but made up for by the view (go around sunset), service and clean and cool environment. Worth the trip a bit north from downtown Aswan, the Nile is not very cluttered here.
