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.

I would say Ali Baba is one of the best restaurants in Dahab (only behind Shark). The breads/dips and the rest of the food was very tasty and particularly the seafood. The staff were all very friendly, if not a little pushy for us to go every night we were there. Note that all restaurants in Dahab are bring your... More

The food was so fresh and tasty, great portion sizes. Very fast and friendly service. The restaurant is right on the beautiful Red Sea, a lovely way to spend the evening.

I loved the place and the food was amazing. When you go look at the plates and the soup bowls they are really amazing, in addition to the grill that is placed on your table. After you eat, they bring you a big brass plate and a brass pot to wash your hands while you are still in your place... More

Even though we were staying all inclusive at Tropitel Dahab oasis, we decided to eat out a couple of times and chose Ali Baba's due to the good reviews. We weren't disappointed. All the staff looked after us so well, the food was the best I have ever tasted and great value for money too. They do not have an... More

We had many lovely evenings in and afternoons in this restaurant. The views were brilliant and the food is so tasty and very good value for what you get! If your a meat or fish fan then the mixed grill and seafood platter is the meal for you but you might want to share it because the portions are large... More
