Had a really nice meal with friends. The restaurant was nicely decorated, the furniture comfy - a nice vibe. Our food was very nice, service was good. As with many restaurants in the area they don't serve alcohol, but they have no problem with you taking your own. There are off licences scattered about Dahab but we got wine and... More

We ate here three times during a six-night stay in Dahab - the staff were lovely, the fish and seafood were amazing and we found that the overall cost represented good value for the mountains of food we ate! It was beautiful to sit by the sea in the evening and eat. Only drawback is the maurading cats, but they... More

Our favourite of the places we ate. We went there a couple of times and the food and service were absolutely spot on. The Red Snapper I had was fantastic.

We only had afernoon tea here, but really enjoyed the friendliness and general ambience. There is a Bedouin fire at night and, with all the lanterns, this must be really pleasant. We didn't manage an evening visit, as time didn't allow.

We stopped at this restaurant on our way from the Sinai Desert after visiting St Katherine's Monastery as part of an arranged excursion by Cosmos. We were greeted by friendly staff and shown to our table overlooking the sea in the shady restaurant. We were served hit flatbread and dips before our main course. The meal was included in the...

I had the pleasure of having my birthday dinner there a couple of weeks ago while on a tour with a group with Intrepid. We had a fabulous dinner, starting with some of the best pita bread and dips. I order the stuffed pawns and they were huge and delicious. The service was very good and I was made to... More

We went to the "Ali Baba" with a group for lunch. As starter we had fresh backed bred with different dips. The main meal was grilled fish and calamaris – very tasty! The décor of the restaurant was typical Arabic and the service very fast and kind. Not to forget the great view to the Red Sea.
