Best bedwein tea you can drink in Dahab and it was complementary. And at the end they serve a fruit salad with ice cream free... More

Ordered broccoli soup which was tasty and for 32le along with spaghetti for 30le, and grilled chicken for 60le. The starters were ok and the pasta was a bit salty. The check cam... More

Not so much of good deal. Ow you no longer get free water and fruit skewers, although towels provided for the 60 Le entrance fee. Too many people standing on the coral and no one stopping them, so won't be long before it will loose its rating as one of the best snorkelling / dive sites in Sharm

Average flavor. Annoying waiters. Owner offers great discounts, but in the end the dishes were included. Poor value for money.

Not long back from Dahab and El Fanar was one of our regular Lunch and Dinner restaurants. All the staff were very attentive and the service was second to none. Great food choices and reasonable prices. And the view was just breath taking. I would definitely recommend you visit El Fanar. Looking forward to visiting again soon!! :)

I visited Dahab for the third time this year and was pleased to revisit my favourite restaurant which again has lived up to all my expectations. The welcoming service and choice of food at all times of the day was excellent. On the night of my birthday I was presented with a beautiful and tasty birthday cake and to finish... More
