Nice place in the day time

Yalla is a nice place to hang out during the day. Prices are not bad, food is fine (not wow but nice enough) the only bad thing I ate there was the apple crumble, so maybe not a place for sweets, but mains were fine.

I was staying with a group of 12 in Dahab for a diving holiday. We went to Yalla bar nearly every day after we finished our diving. It has a very chilled vibe and a great view across the Gulf to Saudi Arabia. There is usually something going on in beach area infront e.g.) watersports, diving etc which was entertaining... More

Beautiful setting, food and service. Visited Dahab on a recent trip to Egypt, we chose this restaurant because they had sunbeds right on the water, we stayed there most of the day going in and out of the sea and snorkelling, leaving our things by the sunbed we did not worry about things going missing. We had thickshakes which were... More

So laid back, good food, good prices, good staff, cold beer and good sheesha. A swim at the front of the restaurant followed by the Egypt breakfast was a nice way to start the day.

Yalla Bar is awesome! Went there every day after diving to relax while I was in Dahab, staff are super friendly. Great place for a drink and lunch and just relax in the sun with a book. They have sun beds you can lie on and an entrance to the water to go swimming. Really friendly place, will be there... More

Yalla Bar quickly became my home away from home. Its drink prices are great, its wifi the fastest I found in Dahab, its wait staff attentive, it's view quite nice, and lounge area very comfortable. The food is nothing special, but good enough. For beer drinkers accustomed to beer with flavor, I suggest the Sakkara Weizen, which is actually a... More

This place has the coldest beer on the promenade!! I didn't try the cocktails. I heard the food isn't all that good. I only tried the pizza so I don't know much about what else they serve. The pizza was fine. And the french fries/chips were good. It's a good spot to catch some sun, drink some beer, and snorkel.... More
