the food was good in porto sono restaurant , but the drinks was expensive there, they have two drinks menu one for Egyptian and another for tourists, and its big different between both lists. the tourists menu is almost three times of the Egyptian prices. l think this is unfair.

We had a lovely BBQ chicken lunch. The salads bar was minimal., but the chicken was more then enough.

Uninspired cooking, but it didn't make us sick. Have a small, but nice salad bar. Had grilled, rather flavorless fish. I suspect that this is predominantly visited by tourists. As always try to order off the menu versus what your tour allows you to get. That way you can try different things while getting a credit for the standard meal.

Good food, more expensive than most other restaurants in Aswan, but it's clean, and the food is tasty, and it has a beautiful view of the Nile

I visited the restaurant with my family, we got our launch there. We ordered a traditional Egyptian food ( Okra, Molokhia and rice ). It was really delicious. The staff are helpful and polite. The salad were fresh and variable. In addition to the traditional Egyptian kitchen, they have Italian food but I didn't ask for any of it. They... More

The cafe and restaurant are located on the Cornish street around 7 minutes drive by car. The cafe on the ground floor doesn't see the Nike, yet the view from the restaurant is quite nice. The food and drinks are a moderate quality yet it is probably the best you can get outside a hotel in Aswan. The value for... More

Really enjoyed the food here. we had continental food and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Some of us tried their vegetarian buffet which had a variety of salads. Worth a try.

Thanks for making my kids the best pasta dish since we have been travelling. We've been away almost a month now. The dust in the air has made us all sick. The kids have been fussy and we have all not been feeling like eating. Our driver called ahead with the order of Neapolitan spaghetti and when we arrived it... More

Even though they offer a'la carte dinner and lunch, I would rather recommend the open buffet. A good choice of fish, beef and chicken along with several vegetable, rice and pasta dishes. Mostly fresh and quite tasty. A nice salad bar but a not so good choice of desserts. The price of LE 75.00 per person must be considered as... More
