Pancakes! Lemon and sugar! Banana and chocolate! Savory! Whatever you want you won;t be disappointed. My 14 year son and I ate at Food urge for over a week and loved every meal we had. there is plenty of food and it is all freshly cooked and delicious. Of course you don't have to have pancakes for breakfast you can... More

Located opposite Eel Garden in Dahab, Food Urge isn't located in the main lighthouse bay area of town along with the other main restaurants and therefore doesn't necessarily get it's fair share of passing trade. In fact had I not been staying at Dive Urge, who operate the restaurant, I may never have ventured to this part of town...and that... More

It true, that as we are at the end of the promenade, we are out of the main stream, but definitely worth the visit. Find us near Eel Garden. More

A lovely building, right on the seashore where the staff are very hospitable. The food was very good, freshly cooked to order (which is the norm in Dahab) The restaurant is past Eel Garden, so therefore a bit off the beaten track, which means it may not get the patronage it deserves. Food was very highly salted, too much for... More

Food urge is a wee walk from the lighthouse but the walk is worth it for anyone not staying at Dive Urge itself. Fab brunch - fruit juices, porridge, banana pancakes etc. Superb fresh fish dishes from grouper, to prawns to calamari. Presentation of their dishes were really colourful and different each time. The staff great you with a smile... More

Food Urge is a great restaurant with a beautiful location over-looking the Eel Garden reef. It has a broad menu offering meals made from scratch, using only fresh food, the chefs create delicious dishes that are attractive and generous. If you fancy something not on the menu, ask, and I am sure they will try their best to oblige. The... More

We spent a really good five days at Dive Urge and only ate at Food Urge. We've been to Dahab before and have tried several other restaurants, but Food Urge is definitely our top choice now. The breakfasts are legendary - fresh juice, filter coffee, multigrain toast, fruit pancakes with yoghurt and honey - yummy! And it's a great place... More

I stayed at Dive Urge for a week. I'm a real foodie and Food Urge was spot on. Generous and tasty, beautifully prepared food from sumptuous Egyptian breakfasts and enormous pancakes to delicate fish meals... You couldn't beat it! Gorgeous food, beach-shack-chic decor, lovely, friendly staff and all just twenty, sandy foot steps from one of the best bits of... More

Really great food here. I'm a fussy veggie and my husband a pescatarian and we were very impressed. The location is perfect, right on the waters edge and if its windy they also have a beautiful glass inside area. Food is freshly cooked, very well seasoned and the atmosphere is relaxed in a truly stunning location. The perfect place to... More

From the incredible breakfasts, to sunset dinners food urge has got to be the best dining experience in Dahab. We have been staying at Dive Urge for two weeks, and haven't even bothered to try any of the other restaurants, not even the places within a few strides from here. Apart from the fact that the kitchen is absolutely spotless... More
