Shams is a nice restaurant few hundred meters from the centre right on the shore. The owner is very nice and ensures the guests' needs are well satisfied. The food is nice, beers are cold and atmosphere enjoyable. Once we even brought our own catch, which was very well cooked. Well-made shishas dot the I.

Shams resturant manages to create a peaceful and comfortable atmosphere. The resturant is really clean and well cared for. The food is pretty good too. The cushions are fresh and comfortable. The staff are attentive and friendly. I enjoyed a tangine listerning to the peddles rolling in the surf and a chill out mix at just the right level on... More

Really nice restaurant right next to the ocean. I found it quite relaxing watching the sea while waiting for my food which was very nice too.

I can really recommend eating at Shams. Good food and service - and if you ask, they might have some Egyptian speciality that are not found in the menu. As said - food is good, the atmosphere very relaxing and prices are very fair. Great place for groups as well :-)

Mohamed, Sameh and the guys were great. Food and drink was brilliant and someone was always ready to take an order. Sameh taught me to play backgammon the Egyption way. I even beat him once... with a little help )). Need some new cussions covers on the pillows would be good but otherwise.. the best. Thanks thanks thanks !!

Great atmosphere and great food, every time. Have visited several times for both lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed by either the food quality or the service. Highly recommended.

Went to Shams twice for lunch in a recent trip to Dahab. The food is good here, great range like the other Dahab restaurants. It's good value for money, nice food.
