Three of us ate here after visiting the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. The food was incredible. Jessica and Niels had chicken and beef which we phoned ahead and ordered on the way to Africa Restaurant so it was ready on arrival. I had the vegetarian option which was vegetables in a tasty tomato-ey sauce... More

Eating at this restaurant reminds one of the actual location of Luxor. It is in Africa. The food is unpretentious and the service is swift. Yet you can still sit and relax enjoying the full view of the Nike river and the partial view of the nearby monuments. The vegetable and potato stews come hot, freshly made from the local... More

A nice stop for classic African food. Spinach, potatoes, chicken, rice, cucumber and tomatoes...yum! All well prepared and spicy and certainly the real deal! Try the lemon drink with mint--very refreshing! I would come here again.

I go there almost every night I stay on the West Bank in Luxor, and it is worth the quick water taxi ride over to eat there. The menu has a local flare (try the fried eggplant - AMAZING) but also will cook whatever you like over and above the menu, and with 6 of us we got out of... More

Nestling just off the bank of the Nile on Main St, this unimposing looking restaurant, like many of its class, hides it’s true best features.... the GREAT FOOD. Recommended by our driver Hassan, this open balcony roof garden restaurant brings you a great view and atmosphere to go along with their really delicious food. Our lunch time visit was alas... More

Located on the west bank, near the ferry terminal,Africa is a most enjoyable place. They have a set menu which includes starters, salads and your choice of chicken, beef, etc. It was really great. Add a cold Stella or two with a view of the Nile, and you could be in paradise. Don't miss it.

Africa restaurant offers you a set menu where you can choice the main dish. Limited choice means that the food is fresh.... a real plus in a city where most restaurants do not see as much affluence as before. The food is simple but tasty.
