What could be wrong with a cool drink in a shady garden after the bustle and heat of Luxor? Plenty when the friendly little café is neglected to the point that the garden is overgrown, the tables and chars filthy and broken and the place...More

What a great place. Don't be put off by appearances, although Sindbad's may be looking a little run down just now, the service is as wonderful as ever. The staff could not be friendlier or the beer cheaper - E£10 for a bottle of Stella....More

Didn't eat here this visit but went most evenings for a few drinks despite being all inclusive at a hotel close by. The beer is ice cold and very very cheap, the sisha is amasing and the view fantastic. It is really relaxing sitting in...More
