I must admit first that I lived two minutes walk from this restaurant for 10 years. Also that the owners were and still are personal friends. However I am sure that the guests coming through during those years wouldn't disagree with me when I praise...this family run establishment. It truly is like a home from home for many of the guests that return time after time for the warm friendly welcome of the Egyptian owner and his German wife. Add to this the excellent international food produced in the quite small kitchen. A real gem of a place situated opposite the entrance to the Hilton Hotel at Karnak.More

this food is special! We ordered a vegetarian dish and the seasoning was very good! The atmosphere is pleasant and decorated with books. The owner of the restaurant is a very attentive and intelligent person. thanks

Was recommended by our friendly taxi driver and did not disappoint. Owner recommend what to try and we left him to it, soup, grilled chicken, beef in tomatoes & rice. All very tasty.

Definitely recommend coming here for lunch or dinner to enjoy some fantastic food (western and Egyptian) at non touristy prices. The owners were brilliant at ensuring dishes for my daughter were free of nuts and sesame due to her allergies. My family and I went...a couple of times as the food was very tasty.More

Amazing food and service, probably my best meal in Egypt so far. Be aware that the restaurant changed location recently. It’s not near Karnak anymore but at Ali Ibn Abi Taleb, Gazirat Al Awameyah, Luxor, Luxor Governorate

NEW ADRESS! Check at Googlemaps! TripAdvisor has the old adress near Hilton. Super service, super friendly (they speak German if that‘s helpful for you), very good food, very original, good prices, very honest! We loved it and will come again!

We had dinner here one night during our stay in Luxor and only did not come back because it was our last night. We wish we had bumped into this place earlier in our stay as it is better in quality and more affordable than...other "famous" restaurants in town. The food was really delicious (best kafta we had, perfectly crunchy french fries), staff was nice and friendly and the ambiance is nice as well. Obs.: the address in Tripadvisor is wrong - they already requested it to be changed, but still no response. Just google "Gerda's Garden" to see the new location. Don't miss it :)More
