went here for new years eve and had a fabulous evening. They couldn't do enough for us, bringing complimentary starter of gorgeous warm bread and many dips and complimentary dessert and tea. We had steak and seafood moussaka for our main and both were delicious.

Great sea food! Take grilled calamari and expect a great taste being not worse that in restaurants of Cannes or Nice or any other famous resort. Not cheap as per the Egypt rates but it is definitely worth it!

Service is great and the food tastes even better. Well dressed waiters bring you fish and fresh meat on platters for you to pick.

Ali Baba at night is stunningly beautiful. The lights, the setting and the fish swimming in the sea next to your table are things you should experience. The food is always good and the staff fantastic. One of the restaurants in Dahab we went back to many, many times.

Dahab is very quiet at the moment, I visited the restraunt on this trip and found the food very poor, the service average but the price still at the top of the local range. It appears that the management have cut back on costs to maintain profit but at the detriment to quality and service.
