Been to Dahab a few times and this has always been my favourite place. So first night I went, was left so disappointed, took ages to order, 90 minutes for food to arrive, there was only 2 tables in. Thought they may be having an off night so tried again for lunch, again disappointing. Food was ok, but nothing special.... More

This is the perfect place for a relaxed snorkeling day. It's located in a quiet area and has an easy entrance to the (amazing!) Eel Garden snorkeling site. Also has Wi-Fi. Service is a bit slow, but the food is well worth the wait. Nice sandwiches, possibly the best fries I had in Dahab, well topped pizzas, and the mixed... More

This is a very special place, the staff are friendly and helpful, the food is fantastic, my sons love the pizza and milkshakes especially! The fresh fruit juices are second to none and we had a wonderful traditional Egyptian feast of BBQ chicken, rice, salads and harub and sobia to drink. We have returned here many times and look forward... More

... this is a great place to relax, have breakfast/lunch/dinner before or after a swim in the lovely eel garden... they have a convenient shower for post-swim... and the staff is really nice. I never once felt rushed when I was there.

Good food, amazing location and nice staff! Perfect place to snorkel, relax or do some work (good free wifi). Try the tuna salad (no mayonaise and lots of herbs) and their great tahina!

Our local dive buddy recommended this place and it was really nice place to go. There's a really nice reef in front of the restaurant, there's also a shower, food was good and the staff was really friendly. Nice place to be in between the dives or just hang around.

We used eel garden stars as a place to leave our towels etc when snorkelling then had a couple of juices on return. They were really nice guys, no pushy hard sell and are happy for you to sunbath or snooze all day if you buy an occasional drink. I also had an egyptian breakfast, delicious.

Great food, great location, great staff, great atmosphere. Mohamed was always smiley and entertaining, if a little overzealous on that front coming to sit with us while we ate! We tried to vary where we frequented for dinner, always to our disappointment so we always came back to eel gardens where the food was top notch at affordable prices. One... More
