We had been recommended to the Jewel of the Nile and we had an excellent meal on our visit but we were, for a while, the only diners there and there was no atmosphere. Perhaps, had we dined later, it would have been different and for cleanliness, quality of food and low price we could not fault it.

Laura and mahmoud were at hand to deliver an excellent meal and service at very reasonable price. We have been at the Jewel of the Nile many times previously and it is worth the walk in the dark lane to reach it. We found the restaurant atmosphere there to be the best in Luxor, very well done to Laura.

You can be sure of a really warm welcome from Laura and Mahmoud at The Jewel of the Nile in Luxor. They will both go out of their way to recommend and present dishes to suit your taste.
Laura is a mine of information about places to visit and is happy to help in any way she can.
We have been to Luxor a number of times and The Jewl is always on our list of restaurants to visit.

Lovely food, tried the Egyptian meal the first night we tried there. Then on the Sunday had the traditional Sunday roast, absolutely beautiful. Staff and Lara the english lady that runs it smashing people make you feel very welcome. Will diffinately be going back there if we go back again in September.
Lara as just opened a tea/coffee shop on the other side of the road (The Secret Garden), where you can get a decent cup of tea/coffee...cans....sandwiches.....snacks at very reasonable prices.
