Lonely Planet review

This top-floor restaurant was the first one here on the riverside just south of the local ferry dock and it’s still going strong. Hagg Mahmoud was a former cook at one of the French archaeological missions, and he and his sons are still cooking excellent tagen s , duck à l’orange, chicken with rosemary and other good dishes. The food is served on the great rooftop terrace with views of the Nile. Very good vegetarian dishes.
