This is one of the better restaurants along the beach-front in Dahab. Their prices are quite a bit higher than the others, but you get a hefty starter, dessert and tea included in it. Definitely come here only on an empty stomach!

Great restaurant, great food, authentic decor. Friendly staff. In the week we were in Dahab we ate here 5 times. The food is fresh tasty and lots of it. They have a very varied menu, great Italian, seafood and the best juices and milkshakes. It's on the waterfront so there's a lovely cool breeze and lots of fish to look... More

The place is spacious with colorful ornaments and decorations. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food we ordered was really good, the main course the side dish and the salads. There was only one dish that had under-cooked fish but the staff apologized for this mistake. It was an overall good experience and I recommend it for sea food... More

Just been there for a dinner meal. The location is fabulous, taste of the bread, salads and main dish is delicious, staff working there is so so friendly and helpful. The only thing to hint is the price, yes it is for some extent expansive to ordinary middle class Egyptians, people above that class will be so pleased as they... More

We were enticed into this restaurant by the friendly guy outside who promised us 5 things... I can't remember them all but they included quality, quantity and service, all of which were certainly met. He also claimed we'd come out as fat as him, we almost did, the portions were great and we were stuffed. The food- especially fish-is excellent... More
