Good Restaurant in Luxor, Egypt

Barking Mad | Jan 5, 2010 10:51 AM

We just ate at an excellent restaurant in Luxor named Maro. After two weeks of travel in Egypt, it's the best meal we've had. Maro has fantastic views; it is right on the Nile just north of the Mummification Museum on the east bank of the river. The "set menus" were reasonably priced (around $8 or 40EGP) and included an array of delicious appetizers including superb baba ganoush and tahini. Main courses included an excellent and delicate sea bass and a smoky chicken kebab. Maro was the first restaurant to present us with an accurate bill. As a plus, Maro has a Nubian waiter who's a dead ringer for a twenty-something Obama.
