Sophisticated dining in Luxor. Formal dress code is a must (tie & suit) for gentlemen. Good variety of dishes. Very tasty. Professional & friendly staff.

Bring your formal attire and your appetite as you embark on a culinary trip from French to English to American and German foods. Some ingredients will look familiar to those who are used to European and American cuisine. Enjoy the food and the low prices.

The 1866 Restaurant is the best at the Winter Palace hotel. It offers a good menu based on classic French dishes. A jacket and/or tie are compulsory but the head waiter may lend you one!

The menu sounded promising but resulted on a succession of bland dishes cooked in an outdated way... It is a french restaurant that does not even have french wines on their list. On top of this, they have this ridicilous smart dress code policy forcing...More

The restaurant has a "dress code" requiring men to wear jackets. However, they supply a mediocre black jacket that you can place on the back of your chair. Pretentious? Yes. At 8:00pm, the place had only three tables with guests. The food was acceptable, but...More

No shorts etc You can enter without a tie but it is a nice place to dress up to go to. Also at the moment you may be the only people in the restaurant due to the lack of tourists in Luxor!
