Cozy, welcoming, beautiful coffee shop and restaurant, that roasts its own coffee beans and makes the best coffees ever, serves delicious milkshakes, bakes its pizzas in an Italian stove oven, offers generous servings of pasta dishes, and serves a super tasty homemade banana cake and tantalizing chocolate-banana pancakes - all this in a gorgeous backyard garden-terrace intimate atmosphere where you will really feel at home.

I totally recommend this restaurant! The food is very tasty, good quality and inexpensive (you can't find cheapest), good shakes and coffee too, they have a nice chill-out garden, wonderful music, best internet connection that you are going to find in Dahab, people are very nice... all in all the best restaurant in town.

Found this place by accident and wish we had found it sooner. Food all fabulous but we hadn't time to sample the entire menu. The in house roasted coffee is amazing and would put barristas back home to shame. Very laid back relaxed atmosphere and very friendly staff. Remember to take a bottle of beer as they don't serve alchohol.... More

Ordered the chicken pizza and pepperoni pizza. The chicken was way over spiced with pepper it took away from the taste of anything else. The pepperoni was not pepperoni. It was cheap processed meat cut in long strips... nothing like an original pepperoni pizza. Very disappointing.

Finding an authentic Italian restaurant in Dahab was a special treat during our stay. Their menu selctions were superb and the quality of their meal exceeded their menu selection. Pizza and Pasta were exceptional. A guaranteed return visit when next in Dahab.

Their pizzas (four seasons and shrimp) was perfect while the pasta was lower than my expectations, it was a little bit oily and tastes old. The guys working there were extremely friendly and helpful.
