Gerda’s Garden information
Gerda is one half of a German-Egyptian couple whose restaurant has built a strong following with European residents and regular visitors to Luxor. The decor is homely provincial European bistro, but the menu features both Egyptian specials like kebab and delicious grilled pigeon, and very European comfort food for those slightly homesick, such as goulash and potato salad.
They also serve an excellent grilled duck (E£55), as well as fish when they can get it fresh from the Mediterranean (E£50-65).
