Relaxing place, great vibe, no hassle

A rare place that never has anyone approach you on the Dahab corniche, Jay's is a very welcoming cafe that we went to a number of times during our stay in Dahab. You can grab a tea and look over the sea at Saudi Arabia for hours.

Enjoyed an afternoon light bite here and found the service friendly and relaxed. Nice outdoor area with a cool looking indoor seating space too.

Back here a couple of times for lunch. The service isn't fast because they prepare the food to order. Not a huge variation in the menu but taste is good and each meal is freshly prepared. While waiting, just lean back, look out to sea and enjoy the beautiful warm temperatures (unless you've picked one of the couple of days... More

Prompt service by a really friendly and not sleazy waiter who's been there for a good while now; which is a plus in my book. Also he's not out there dragging you in off the street and hassling you for custom. Whether they have a new chef or not, I do not know but, regardless the food has improved a... More

Came here regularly for a drink and to relax. Jay's is very chilled out as are all the staff. Great place to drift off and mesmerise while listening to the good tunes.

Loved this place and came here every day for a week. Tried almost everything on the menu but tuna salad was my favorite. Good service and really nice place to hang out during the daytime.

So pace is very nice, I usually go there in the evening to relax and use the Wifi while drinking tea and smoking shisa. Very nice place during the day as well if you want to relax on the sun beds. The staff and the owner are very friendly, and the atmosphere and music very good.

we spent several evenings here drinking coffee and having Shisha just relaxing we also had several lovely lunches and spent the whole day on the sunbeds and having the very helpful and friendly Yassar bring us great lunches and lovely fresh juice drinks. One of my favourite places in Dahab.
