This is an extremely friendly place to eat. The seafood dish, especially prepared for us was served in a spectacular arrangement and tasted as good as it looked. I'd happily recommend this place to anyone - but beware, in common with most other restaurants here, you will be plagued by feral cats. Don't feed them, shoo them away with the... More

All the staff were extremely accommodating. The food was excellent and plentiful. We had a shared starter between 4 of us, which was nice, the main courses were massive, followed by a nice little taster of a sweet and then a shisha to top it all off. Great place, and in expensive. 10/10

Really enjoyed this restaurant - don't let the name put you off. Usual cat problem, but water spray provided. Best food I had in Dahab.

I found this place my first day in Dahab and I ended up coming here almost every day afterwards. The food is just amazing - try the okra! - and the service couldn't be friendlier or better. A perfect place for both dinner or an afternoon chill out.

Friends is a lovely restaurant with a great atmosphere and really friendly staff. The staff are attentive without making you feel uncomfortable. The food is nice and reasonable. The rooftop terrace is nice too. Well worth a visit for an evening meal, lunch or just a drink.

Very friendly restaurant and staff, including for our kids. Warm atmosphere, nice view on the sea (you can sit literally on the shore). Meat dishes are not especially top ones but you can find an excellent fish. Have been thee in 2009 and now in 2015. Same ambiance. Happy to see more tourists in Dahab too...

I feel so sad that Dahab is so quiet now. We were the only tourists rattling around. We ventured into Friends because we were so sick of the western food being served at our resort. Friends did not disappoint. The food was amazing.

Dahab hosts many restaurants similar to Friends (similar menu, similar decor), but Friends distinguishes itself by its friendliness. Less aggressive than some of its neighbours and a fine place to relax and enjoy a meal. The food is of good quality, a large selection of meals to choose from. I especially love the fried calamari and their fresh fruit juices.... More
