Fabulous Nile view and very relaxing atmosphere in which one can smell the peace and glory of the ancient times. Excellent service.. Food was very good but a bit expensive.. The place certainly worth another visit.

Lovely lunch here today with a great view. Needed the peaceful vibes. Club sandwich was refreshing and delightful. Enjoyed lounging for the afternoon after a morning of exploring temples. Nice wine and breads also.
