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.

This is the Food side of Dive Urge and continues the experience. Breakfast is always amazing and the wonderful Simi greets you with a big smile and open order book. Whether it is "normal" pancakes (with fruit, honey, sugar and lemon or swathed in chocolate) scrambled eggs or the full Egyptian (my personal favourite) it is always good and the... More

Nothing too special about this place. Seemed a little expensive for what you could get on the promenade. This restaurant is located in the quieter part of Dahab. Eel Garden is very beautiful area to snorkel in though.

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
