The Nile Valley and Luxor Restaurants

Luxor is a busy tourist destination and has a wide range of restaurants; outside of Luxor, your choices are more limited, particularly in Al Minya. Alcohol is not served everywhere.

The variable city tax on restaurants, combined with service charges, can total as much as 26%. Check menus to verify how each restaurant operates. Unless you are in a major hotel, consider tipping even if a service charge is included in the bill: waiters are not well paid, and the courtesy will be appreciated. If service is not charged, 10% to 15% is a reasonable tip. As a rule, most hotel restaurants are open to the general public. Reservations are recommended at all hotel restaurants.
