Day two lunch on our tour so the tour company arranged the stop. We had a great view up & down the river and a relaxing lunch. The food was good; lots of hummus & dips to try. The service was also friendly and attentive.

Nice place directly at the Nile with different opportunities for having a good diner. I had dinner on the upper terrace and enjoyed the evening.
