As it suggests in the name, the very best thing about this new (Dec 2015) Restaurant is its view. So I highlight it in the scrolling panorama above.
Newly opened in December 2015, this restaurant offers excellent views over the Tombs of the Nobles and as far as the temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahri, as well as over the cultivation. It is about 200 metres from the Ramesseum Rest House, adjacent to the first pylon of the Mortuary Temple of Tuthmosis III which is currently being restored, and to the tombs at Khokha. The best views are from the 2nd floor roof terrace bar, and there are plenty of sockets for those needing to charge their electronic devices. The first floor restaurant has floor to ceiling windows giving good views as well as air conditioning for the summer months, and there are 3 letting rooms on the ground floor with a shared kitchen and bathroom (with full length bath!) and balcony.
The preliminary menu is shown in the slide show below. All the food is freshly prepared, not frozen. First sign sare that it is very good.
Alcoholic drinks are not served, but diners are invited to bring their own. Toilets on each floor are clean and modern. I hope that towels will soon be available!
As I visited in the late afternoon the sun was not really in the right position for photographs, unless one likes sunsets. So on a second visit I arrived around noon. It was on a Friday so there were no archaelogists working.
