“Great food, great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2013

Very cheap with a birds' eye view of Luxor Temple, Stella at LE10 and the food is excellent. The atmosphere is relaxed (much like everywhere in Luxor) and the staff helpful... although they do get distracted if the football is on their small portable tv. A great little restaurant, behind Luxor Temple, upstairs next to Hamees restaurant.

“Good food, stunning view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013

Two menus - Egyptian and International. Prices OK - the potions of kebab (chicken) a bit small but very well and freshly cooked, hence the delay - so get a starter! French rather than traditional flat bread. Best value is Falafel or omelette. Great to hang out with friends, smoke and share a beer or even a bottle of wine (Omar Kayam LE85 - not bad for a restaurant).

“Food was OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2013

I thought this place would be better considering it was recommended to me. I noticed a number of westerners that live in Luxor visit. My wife and I found the food OK but could be better value and cleaner. The service was slow on our visit.

“Amazing view disappointing food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2013

This bar/cafe has amazing views of luxor temple but unfortunately the food was very disappointing.The plus points are obviously the view and the cheapest beer we had in Luxor.Do visit to have a beer and watch the hustle and bustle of the city at night but avoid eating here.

“Good restaurant in Luxor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2012

We ate here in December 2012, the vegetarian platter was great value and mostly very tasty! Staff was friendly, and the restaurant has a great view of Luxor Temple. Good value for money!
