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

Recently spent 10 days in Dahab and frequently ate at El Fanar. We first stopped here on a trip to St Katherine's from Sharm El Sheikh back in July and I will agree that the food served then wasn't the best but if you order from the main menu then the food is fantastic. The seafood soup is the best... More

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
