You should try it

In your visit to Dahab, you must try the fresh red sea fishes. Grilled fresh fish in a very tasty marinate + the grilled shrimps + the sea food soup their collection of salads will take you in a good journey around Egypt while you still on you seat. I love it very much.

We ate here twice during our short stay in Dahab, mostly because the waitstaff were so kind. Our waiter helped us choose a grilled fish that was superb and came with lots of little side mezzes. There are many, many cats in Dahab, which we don't mind, but others might. However the staff at Ali Baba are armed with spray... More

This is the best restaurant in Dahab, with a great view in front of the sea, nice decorations, and the most important: GOD FOOD! We tried egyptian (lebanese) food and sea food which was excellent, tasteful, with adequate price. Also drinks are great, they served a mix of fresh juices. The services was great and the staff very friendly. Highly... More

It's not exactly a great find, there's only really one road through Dahab and this is one of the biggest restaurants on it. But the food is lovely, the waiting staff are great and although the restaurant is dry, you can bring your own wine.
