It's a nice retreat from being constantly bombarded by all the hustlers & hagglers at the streets of Luxor. Tourist-friendly place and staffs. Nice ambience. Been here twice for dinner. Great food, although price seemed a bit too high.

The food was actually good. I suggest you order the duck because it was very delicious indeed. The pigeon was also good.

Egyptian restaurant where the food is freshly cooked and very tasty. I’m gluten free and this didn’t cause any problems. The moussaka was particularly good, though I don’t know if this is an Egyptian speciality

At the second floor with an ancient look, this place is just charming. No wall roadside so you can listen the outside noises like if you were on the steet. The service is friendly and the price are very low.
