We revisited El Fanar this year, and the food was so much tastier than before! The service was good, as usual, and the setting as idyllic as it gets in Dahab. Very impressed- we will go back, which is more than I can say for many of the shore-front restaurants- they are all much the same price, menu and setting.... More

Food both times has been good, especially the prawn coconut curry. Service is very slow but all the restaurants in Dahab seem to be the same. We will be back.

Tip for anyone who wants to go to this place. These people smile drawn on the lips just a view to cheat you. Simply because they are fake people. Because their deeds under the ladder .. fake. Swear by God is the truth. Even with the workers do not give them their reward monthly or daily. Only for greed and... More

We came here for breakfast. The atmosphere is nice. First of all the food took so long for a pancake and continental breakfast. The pancake was so terrible and tasteless that I refused the food and made them take it back! Then the continental was suppose to have plain toast. What we received were two buns that had huge lumps... More

This was a lunch stop as part of a tour to St.Katherines monastery. We pre-ordered our meals, whilst on the coach and, presumably, the guide phoned the orders in to the restaurant. We had a choice of meat, pasta or pizza. I ordered the meat and to say it was very well done was an understatement - it was burnt.... More

Don't try it, very bad food, very small portions, over promising staff, very expensive, bad service. It's a waste of money.

Had a blast there, the mood, food and service were awesome. Ask for Adel to help you out. Seafood is a must there.
