The restaurant is now closed, and has been for some weeks. But good drinks, wifi, shisha and clean toilets can be found next door at Desert Rose cafeteria.

This restaurant is typical Egyptian, and nothing is too much trouble. Ask to go on the roof at sunset for some magical views (forget the electricity cables !). I have been here for lunch in March 2017 and was here for dinner in May and...More

If you're visiting Habu temple or village, I'd recommend the Hapy Habu restaurant. We visited twice, for an evening meal and then for tea the next morning. The manager Moussa was friendly and helpful, and the food was good - much better quality and value...More

After my tours in Luxor, my guide took me to Hapy Habu for lunch. It's within walking distance of Madinet Habu, which is where we went after lunch. I had Red Sea Fish with tajine (tagine), salad, tuna, and something that seemed like hummus to...More

Great place, great food, very cheap, but most importantly best bathroom facilities on westbank! Make sure you sit outside in the covered terrace area and enjoy the garden bit, lots of birds to see.

There's a shady outdoor terrace overlooking the temple as well as an indoor dining room. The menu is unsophisticated but the food we ordered (onion tart and meat-free moussaka) came piping hot - unusual for Egypt - and was clearly freshly made. There were lots...More
