Easily the best restaurant we went to when we were on holiday in Dahab. The dips and pitas were out of this world and everything else was fresh, delicious and flavourful. Awesome service to boot.

An ordinary place to eat. A bit expensive. Touristic level of food quality. Located by the sea in the heart of Dahab

There are dozens of options for seafood in Dahab but Ali Baba is the best. There is a wide variety of fresh fish and many different delicious preparations. There are good vegetarian and non-seafood options as well. The service is excellent (they give you a bowl of water with lemon to keep your fingers clean as you devour your fish... More

This restaurant is the best in Dahab. The most elegant and clean among all in the restaurants area, they provide very high quality fresh food. The owners of the place are always there moving among the tables taking feedback from all customers. They price is slightly high compared to others but quality worth it. It is in an amazing location... More

This was my 'must come back to' restaurant from last years trip but unfortunately didn't live up to expectations. The waiters are still attentive, and they have the nice hand washing ritual but we didn't get any of the complimentary dips we had last time and whilst the pizzas were nice they were nothing special. I have long thought this... More
