Reviewed 1 June 2014

Amazing value for tasty food.
Awesome service and the waiters are very friendly.
Menu is diverse and it has a good view of the Nile.
It is the best restaurant in Aswan.
Definitely would visit again next time I'm in Aswan

“Not worth it”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

First of all, it is far from downtown, you'll have to take a 20LE taxi, and it isn't very easy to find a taxi back since it was located on a remote part of the Corniche, a deserted part.

Second, it is a neo-modern restaurant that is trying too hard to mimic those restaurants in Cairo for example. First tell tale sign, there is a minimum charge. The food is unreasonably overpriced for Aswan, unless you stick to pizza and pasta.

There is an open-buffet in addition to the menu, we haven't tried it.

Shortly, it has nothing to do with Aswan, and has no authenticity at all. Just avoid it, it is not worth it.

“amazing”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

i can never imagine that a restaurant like this is found in aswan, it is amazing in everything starting from the location, the view, the place itself, the type and quality of food served, plus all this is provided in cheap prices.from my own point of view food quality is better than other restaurants in cairo. All what you may think of is avaliable in the menu.
Seafood soup, pasta, and many other.

“A very pleasant place to eat”
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.”
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.
