My husband and I ended up coming here more than any other of the restaurants on the beachfront. The service was very good (especially a very young boy of around 10 years old who was very smiley and enthusiastic!) and the fresh seafood platters were delicious. And as with other restaurants here, there was free bread with local dips, as... More

Seafood soup is good. Rich and tasty. The staff is really friendly, I had my running shoe torn and I was so upset about it, but the waiter offered me his kind help, I just left my shoe for him at the counter and next day I received it perfectly fixed! Really saved me tons of nerves! Here you're treated... More

Place: very nicely decorated by the beach, relaxing atmosphere Food: seafood rice is very tasty. fresh fish and shrimps cooked the way you like. Price: for 2 pax we paid 500 Egyptian pound, I found it a little bit pricy Service: very good and friendly Negative point: Many cats around and under tables, its very common in Dahab.

We arrived about 7-8 minutes late (due to Egyptian transport) to be told that after 5... More

At this point the cats began arriving. Nothing can stop them. After battling through the majority of the excellent fish, one cat, despite being sprayed, pushed and hit... More
