Nice place, cook ok but expensive for Louxor. As we did not come with a guide, we were left for a long time waiting whereas local people where served immediately.

I had a very nice meal at Sofra on my last trip to Luxor. The restaurant is off the usual tourist path, and I missed it completely the first time I set out to find it. It's well worth a visit for the fresh juices and delicious shakshuka. Prices are beyond reasonable and the ambiance is perfection. I look forward... More

Tasty food in a nice restaurant with gorgeous furniture and a beautiful terrace. They made every typical Egyptian dish much better than anywhere else in Luxor and most of Egypt. Large selection of mezze. Prices are fair. Vegans (and vegetarians) will find here a large selection of soups, mezze (like Tahini, Hummus, Vegetables in olive oil) and some casserole type... More

Went there with our family. We had a 3 course dinner for a very reasonable price. The place looks really nice as you sit in fact on the fully covered terrace on the first floor. Furniture is authentic in old style, but well maintained. The food is real egyptian and tastes wonderfull. All is fresh made. I especially recommend the... More

We came here for a dinner, suggested by the tour agency we travelled with. Even there were only tourists besides us, we had a truly great time here. This place had a great charm, beautiful design, a calm and relaxed atmosphere, great food and kind service. We had some authentic egyiption food, that was delicious. The restaurant is hidden in...

We put our tour guide on the spot for a lunch recommendation in Luxor and he really came through. We found this restaurant to be in a class by itself. The menu was expansive and we ended up coming back several times for lunch and dinner to try the broad range of dishes. We couldn't find a bad one! The... More

This restaurant was a terrific recommendation from the hotel we were staying at. It was easy to find, and so worth the short walk from the Nile. We were absolutely delighted by the delicious local food that we enjoyed, and kept ordering more and more. The price was totally reasonable for such an elegant atmosphere and tasty food. I highly...

It was our second visit to Sofra. What a disappointment! Last year, although the service was slow, we found the food tasty. This year, it was so bad that my wife could not eat her dish.... it was simply not fresh. Sofra should adapt to a world with few tourists. I would recommend that they limit themselves to a limited...
