Wonderful crepes, wonderful milkshakes, great burgers and wraps. You can eat traditional Egyptian food too!

Service is great always with a smile. Food is great too and varied! There is traditional Egyptian food and British food. Iftari on the beach during Ramadan was special.

This restaurant provides fresh, locally sourced and delicious food. I was more than happy to eat here during my diving holiday. The service is excellent and I was overwhelmed by just how beautiful the scenery is: only 4-5 metres away are the crystal clear waters of the Red Sea and, in the hazy distance, the mountains of Saudi Arabia call...

We ate here a couple of times during our stay at Dive Urge. If you are looking for a stroll outside of the main bay, it is worth visiting Food Urge, as they have a great chef there. We had a seafood platter on two nights which was amazing! The seafood was cooked to perfection and I couldn't get enough... More

Just north of downtown Dahab, you get a peaceful setting, direct access to the beach, overlooking the Eel Garden (so bring your togs and snorkelling gear). The food is excellent with a good variety of local fare and typical western food - highly recommend the Egyptian Breakfast and lunchtime wraps. The staff (Mesimi in particular) will make you feel welcome,... More

I stayed at Dive Urge and ate in and at other places. As in my review for Dive Urge the entire experience is relaxing and chilled. Staff are perceptive....seem to be around when you want them but not hovering when you don't want them. Food is lovely and the chef takes a pride in what he does...so its good and... More

I don't what it is about Dahab but the quality of the flatbread is uniformly superb. this means that as well as traditional Egyptian bread, the pizzas, wraps and pancakes are really really good. I include Food-Urge in this, some of the best pizza I've had outside of Italy. I also became addicted to the Food-Urge rice which is cooked... More

All the food is good, especially after a day diving but its the breakfast which is particularly good. Fruit pancakes are a must but the team at Food Urge will do whatever you fancy.
