The Lantern restaurant: Great find!

This restaurant was recommended by regular British visitors to Luxor and was a great recommendation! The restaurant was opened by a British lady, but serves Egyptian, as well as British food. This food was such good value for money, eg soup was 0.50GBP and a main course, such as half a duck with apple sauce, roast potatoes and vegetables was only 2.80 GBP! Our whole bill for two courses each and four cokes came to less than 8 GBP.

Comparison: less expensive than average

Directions: walk alongside the St Joseph’s hotel until you reach the end of the road, turn right and the restaurant is immediately on the right.

Price: less than US$10

Reading the menu by torchlight! - Luxor

Aladdin restaurant - Sonesta St George hotel: Good Egyptian food

This restaurant is towards the back of the hotel, at pool level. You walk to the left of the pool and it is behind this. We sat outside and were given a torch to read the menu! It was delicious Egyptian food, such as lamb koftas, rice, special potatoes and a mezze tray - this bill came to just under 18GBP for the food for the two of us, which was not bad for a 5 star hotel!

Beban restaurant: Nice Italian restaurant

This is an Italian restaurant, located in the Sonesta St George hotel, on the lobby level. It has a nice atmosphere with a piano player. We were sat by big windows looking out onto the pool and Nile, it would have been nice to visit during the day as well, but we didn’t have time.

Comparison: more expensive than average

Price: US$21-30

Excellent Chinese restaurant - Luxor
Dragon: Excellent Chinese restaurant

This is an excellent restaurant! It is next to the Meridien hotel. We had soup for starters, a main course each and rice each, which came to less than 10 GBP! There was also a little show put on of a waiter serving burning Irish coffee, so the lights dim while he does his party trick!

Comparison: about average

Price: US$11-20
