Difficult to find, it is tucked away at the far end of the pathway along the Dahab 'strip'. My first visit certainly met expectations and the food delicious. The restaurant had a lot to live up to as friends had said it was the best Italian in Egypt! My only quibble, if anything, would be on the portion size (not... More

We attended this restaurant and were shocked at the appalling service. It took over 20 minutes to receive the wine, the food was average although vastly overpriced. We eat much better pasta at Jays restaurant and it was a lot cheaper. At Dai Pescatori we were served a tiny portion of pasta which was rapidly going cold and no cutlery... More

I was amazed to find a restaurant with this kind of quality Italian food in Dahab. Definitely worth a try! The restaurant is not located at the main boulevard, but it is only a short 5-10 min walk from Lighthouse; you can follow the boulevard around the corner towards the Eel Garden dive site. The restaurant is a bit further.

Dahab hosts many fine, relaxing places to eat, but Dai Pescatori is one of the only true restaurants. It's a bit of a walk from the main tourist 'centre', but well worth the stroll. The food tastes truly Italian, is fresh and very tasty. The menu has something to offer everyone, definitely worth visiting at least once during your time... More

This restaurant has a good atmosphere,tasty food, good customer service and while you eat you can see a lovely view of the sea. I just think more fish variety should be on the menu and prices are a little expensive but overall this place is definitely worth a visit and munch :)

We ate here several times and loved the pizza here. The hand made pasta was excellent too. We also ate apple pie with icecream here. The food and espresso were excellent! It is worth the walk to this restaurant since it is located about 10 minutes from the main promenade.
