Gerda’s Garden

Egyptian in Luxor

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 (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 (LE55), and fish when they can get it fresh from the Mediterranean (LE50 to LE65).
