JUST WOW

This place shocked me, as always they are out the front enticing you in. Our dive center H2O Divers Dahab suggested dining there. Now to say the service is excellent is an understatement! I run a fine dining restaurant in England and the service was madly on par with us. Was not what I expected and... read more

We had a fantastic seafood platter here, with some starters and a dessert thrown in too. We chose a few different items from the fish counter and the chef prepared us a delicious seafood platter. I can't recommend the prawns enough (they are huge!) and the mussels were cooked to perfection. Even though there are many good restaurants in Dahab... More

We were persuaded to have the special fish deal for two, a large snapper, huge prawns and calamari with lots of different vegetables. The meal included a range of mezes as starters, tea and a dessert. Fish beautifully cooked. Only downside the cats which descend on you when your food arrives. You are provided with a spray to deter them... More

The review title says it all. There are many very good restaurants in Dahab but none of them came close to this place. The service was everything you would expect and a lot more. The staff were all smartly dressed and took their job seriously. They really wanted to make sure you had a nice evening with them. The food... More

Dahab is very quiet at the moment, but this was one of the few places gat always seemed busy, had a good atmosphere and the food always excellent. The prawn curry was amazing Must gave been good in our two weeks here I think my dad dragged me (although no kicking or screaming) back for a total of 5 meals.... More

I'm just back from a 12 night stay in dahab and we ate at shark twice. Definitely the best around and such friendly staff with great free extras (water, welcome canapé, Egyptian bread and dips, tea and a small cake at the end). All this and a great view. What more could you want!

Well as soon as you go there you start feeling happy and relaxed because of helpful and cheerful staff, who may do whatever to please you, the food may be a bit overpriced, but at the service you get, you never feel that...

Close to the lighthouse you'll get the best food in dahab. The fish and the meat is allways fresh and very delicious. The service is great. We spent some great evenings here.

Simply very good. Not the cheapest restaurant but very good value for money. Clean, good staff, good food, nice menu. Good atmosphere. When you are in Dahab, you must al least eat here once.
