We stayed on the West Bank for a few days and just wanted to have dinner overlooking the Nile once. Africa turned out to be the perfect choice. The staff was really welcoming and helpful. We had a lovely meal for 60 LE per person, which is unbelievable considering the location. I really enjoyed my cold beer and they even... More

I went to this restaurant with ny tour guide as part of a private tour to Luxor from Hurghada as the initial itinerary was to take a speedboat to banana island and have lunch there, but I wanted to take a felucca ride in the Nile instead and so we came to this restaurant. There is a set menu of... More

Have eaten here several times on our current visit. The food is delicious and its 80 LE per person. (More expensive then it was but the price of food has gone up astronomically here). It is a set menu but you choose the main dish. You get a dip, bread, salad (cucumber, tomato and grated carrot), fried aubergine, rice and... More

Three of us ate here after visiting the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. The food was incredible. Jessica and Niels had chicken and beef which we phoned ahead and ordered on the way to Africa Restaurant so it was ready on arrival. I had the vegetarian option which was vegetables in a tasty tomato-ey sauce... More

Eating at this restaurant reminds one of the actual location of Luxor. It is in Africa. The food is unpretentious and the service is swift. Yet you can still sit and relax enjoying the full view of the Nike river and the partial view of the nearby monuments. The vegetable and potato stews come hot, freshly made from the local... More

A nice stop for classic African food. Spinach, potatoes, chicken, rice, cucumber and tomatoes...yum! All well prepared and spicy and certainly the real deal! Try the lemon drink with mint--very refreshing! I would come here again.

I go there almost every night I stay on the West Bank in Luxor, and it is worth the quick water taxi ride over to eat there. The menu has a local flare (try the fried eggplant - AMAZING) but also will cook whatever you like over and above the menu, and with 6 of us we got out of... More
