“Extraordinary Hospitality”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

What we loved about this restaurant and made us stay for three houres each time we stopped by was the combination of a solid, technical proper cuisine with fresh ingredients (spiced lightly for every stomach to enjoy) and the great service provided by Gerda and Wael, the utmost lovely german-egyptian couple running Gerda's Garden. Rather unusal are the low prices (same for Egypts and Tourists ;) and the possiblity to drink beer and good (!) wine. After meal you can sit down in the couch area and chat with whoever's sitting there, stuffed and happy. It's a very relaxing island: if you are more or less stressed cause still need to adapt to country and culture visiting this place might help you to overcome it and open up a little.

Stayed at the hilton in Feb/Mar and at the hotel entrance visiting Gerta's Garden several nights for a drink or meal enjoying the hospitality of the friendly owners Gerda and Wael
Met a few locals which with Gertas/ Waels help greatly assisted in visiting Luxors sights
Highly recommend and look forward to visiting again

“The most divine goulash in the world”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

I only discovered this restaurant (through friends) the day before my holiday was over. Such a shame, but when I come back to Luxor I think I'm going to become a goulash groupie - it was simply the best I'd ever eaten, and so good with chips!

“home away from home”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

we stayed in karnak over the christmas period and had a great 10 days full of adventure but one of the highlights of our trip was gerda,s garden on hilton street
every night gerda would welcome us on our entrance to her reataurant with a warm smile and make us feel so at home
gerda's has a first class menu with an amazing selection of egyption and german dishs to choose from at extremely reasonable prices
we also were lucky to be invited to gerdas christmas feast where we were served a beautiful six course meal and champagne.
thank you again gerda we will defo be coming back soon

“Coming home from adventures”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

We went to gerdas garden on our third day. And each and every day after that. For us ( first time in egypt ) it was like returning home in the evening after a day full of adventures. Especially we enjoyed the freshness of the food compared to the mass buffet feeding in our 4.5 star hotel.
But the best of gerdas are the things you cant pay for: you will meet very nice and interesting people and the friendly family atmosphere will have you chat with then like old friend before the main dish is served. Every evening we met someone new. Each time we made a new friend.
Gerda and Wael ( the owners ) will go great lenghts to help you with requests or questions you might have.
If you look for plain but quality food, prefer freshness before fanciness, gerdas garden is the place for you.
Especially i recommend the wines, i found no better than there.
