Exelent staff, they try to do everything for you. They do not sell alkohol, but they put you wine in refrigerator and open for you, without charge. Good seafood, if I had not satisfied my lobster, the next day they served a new one as a gift! Very good fish, but the best are shrimps:)

We decided to eat here as the Forsha's was closed when we were in Dahab. The food portion sizes were huge (remember not to order a starter as they provide you with mezzes and bread). We ordered a chicken curry and a pizza.... quality of both was below average for the over price paid...

This is a place where the owners will hustle you at the door and promise you great things but forget all about you once you are seated and ordered your food. The worst fresh fish we had was at this restaurant, so tasteless and over priced. Would not recommend it to anyone.

The staff here is very welcoming and friendly. Definitely makes one feel comfortable and at home. As for the food, I do must say the food at Ali Baba's is one of the best in Dahab. The quality of the food is amazing. The service is great. Even the shisha man has the best shisha in Dahab.

The ambiance is a bit more posh than the other restaurants in the area, they are also a bit more expensive, but the food is very good and the portion is more than adequate. The service is good, you will be satisfied when leaving.

We used to visit Dahab regularly but haven't been for 3 years so we were happy to return after a long absence. We always ate at Ali Baba previously, so naturally we returned there. Unfortunately it was not as good value as it used to be, although the food was still excellent quality. They used to serve freshly baked bread... More
