We had dinner in this restaurant 2 times. The first time we had moussaka, which was good and served with bread. Very good value for money. The second time we had grilled fish, which was very salty and not nice. Both times, the service was friendly, but sloooowwwwww......

Difficult to find but it is beside the Nile down some steps. Very nice view looking out over the river. I actually found it by accident just looking for an alternative walking route avoiding all the taxi driver, horse and carriage and Mohammed who was trying to sell me a felucca ride. (I spent so long talking to him and... More

Don't go here. This was my absolute worst experience in the whole of Egypt. It took them 2.5 hours to serve our soup. We were just about to leave when we finally got about 3 spoonfuls of tasteless soup. The waiting staff kept saying that the food was coming 'just now!' and it still didn't come. When it finally arrived,... More

It's a nice cafe by the Nile and it has a very nice view. Food and drinks are average but still ok compared to prices and location

This restaurant is right on the Nile and provides great views of the river, which is at its mightiest in Aswan. The food was decent and the shisha was quite good, which make this a very good place to visit, especially to watch the sunset

Long established restaurant / coffee shop on the Nile in the middle of town. Staff were friendly but food takes forever to come and is only average when it arrives. A better bet probably for a coffee or a juice, although they couldn't even make me an americano coffee as they were without electricity. Used to be one of the... More

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
