I ate at Aswan Moon twice, the first time because I had read about it on tripadvisor and the second time because I was tired and desperate and not in the mood to look for a new restaurant and this restaurant was located close to my hotel (The Mövenpick) .The service is painfully slow at this restaurant- it takes about...

It is a nice place but dinner was disappointment. It's more a cafeteria than a restaurant and you could see it since the beginning, none of the locals eating but drinking tea and smoking shishas. It's more a meeting place for them, for the fresh kids in town. Which is nice too, I love to experience this when I travel.... More

We came here for dinner and didn't enjoy it so much. It was hard to get the waiters' attention, and the service was slow (although not terrible for Egypt). The food was not great, and there wasn't much either for the price. The juices were delicious though. The view is very nice, and the place is obviously popular with locals,... More

We were worried about the slow service people mentioned previously here, but our food came within 20 minutes on two separate experiences - one at a busy night and one at an half-full afternoon. The lentil soup is very delicious of a generous portion. The grilled chicken, served with rice/chips at your choice, is juicy and tender. The Musaka (without... More

Food takes a while anywhere in Egypt but here, on a quiet afternoon, it took a good 40 minutes to make a pizza and a mixed grill. The view was nice if you are sitting directly next to the river, but it's not enough to distract you from the sub par food. We ordered a margarita pizza but it came... More

The food here isn't great, and the service is not wonderful, but it's not absolutely terrible either. The Aswan Moon appears to be pretty much the only pleasant riverside restaurant still operating in Aswan. It's nice to sit there in the afternoon, and they don't mind if you only have drinks. There's a wide range of cuisines on offer, and... More

Poor for its waiting time and dishonesty. We went here because it was next to our hotel. We arrived around 8pm when the restaurant was half full with most of the people ordering drinks and watching football. However, we had to wait 45 mins for a Syrian meatball and Mousska. After 30 mins the waiter told us food will arrive... More

The Tripadvisor map shows the wrong location. The restaurant/cafe is at the waterfront- not near the mosque. We were only with 6 and seamed the only group that actualy ordered food. We had to wait an 'egyptian' 30 minutes= an hour. The soup OK, pizza was OK, but the fried fish more a childrens portion. The ordered souflaki...taste was good,... More
