Great easy-going alfresco restaurant in the lane running between the souq and the street to the Karnak temples. Fresh and well-prepared Egyptian dishes like fiteer (flaky pizza) and tagen (stew cooked in earthenware pots) are served alongside good pizzas and salads, although the chef is constantly expanding his range: look out for the new camel with couscous.

The young staff are both friendly and efficient and the terrace is a great place to watch the world go by, or relax after shopping in the souq. The same menu is served on the hotel’s rooftop terrace, which has great views over Luxor Temple and the Thebes mountains, both floodlit at night.
