This time around in Dahab we dined at Shams twice, not counting the thick shakes etc. we got after diving. Even though the restaurant had a new chef since last time they still manage to keep a very high standard when it comes to the food. I recommend asking the staff if there is something recommendable, we did that both... More

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.

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.
