“Delicious Egyptian Food with a Fabulous View!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

I visit Luxor quite often and usually eat at Moon Valley at least once during each visit. The food is delicious and the welcome is always warm and friendly. I tend to visit for an early dinner and the views across the West Bank of Luxor at sunset add to the experience. Highly recommended.

Excellent food in brilliant surroundings with a view of Hatshepsut's temple while you eat. Fresh, well prepared and very tasty and good clean facilities with a friendly host. Very recommended.

“Gem of a restaurant on the West Bank, with great roof top views.”
Reviewed 28 March 2013

I have been visiting Luxor for many years and for the last few years I have been coming to this restaurant with my guide, to have a really lovely breakfast - traditional falafal, foul, sizzling omelette, feta cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers and the wonderful Egyptian bread. I also went across to the West Bank in the evening to have a meal at this restaurant.

If you are happy to climb the stairs, it is lovely to sit in the roof top restaurant - in the morning you have the lovely view across the fields and the local traffic of donkeys pulling the farmers' produce and the general hub bub of local people going about their business. If you sit upstairs in the evening, you will have the fantastic vista of the hills above the Valley of Kings being lit up (at 7pm) - magical!

There is a wide variety of the traditional Egyptian food to choose from, all wonderfully cooked by the chef, Ali, who always has a great wide smile - you will receive a very warm welcome from him and his assistant/waiter Taha.

This is an ideal restaurant to visit on the return from a morning of visiting Tombs and Temples on the West bank. Just down the road are the wonderful Colossi of Memnon, which are visited by all tourists, so DO PLEASE STOP at this restaurant.

Luxor is suffering from the lack of tourists and all businesses need support and this is a very worthy restaurant to visit. Many people may not be aware of this restaurant, so I hope this review will help advertise it.

“A great place for lunch after West Bank tours”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

I had visited a number of tombs and temples the other day. On the way back to the ferry my driver wanted to know if I wanted to have lunch before crossing the river. I suggested a restaurant I had visited before. He suggested that I trip Moon Valley Restaurant. I agreed and was pleasantly surprised. The Egyptian food was very good, the staff was friendly and helpful. They have a nice roof with a great view of the farms in the area. Price was very reasonable. I can highly recommend Moon Valley
