A must go in Dahab

This was the first place we stopped to have a meal when we got to Dahab - and it turned out to be our local.. a definite home from home! There's always a great atmosphere, no matter what part of the restaurant you're in, you feel cozy and always welcome. Food is served the whole afternoon and... read more

have not had a chance to try all the dishes yet, but so far it was a pure joy for my taste buds and cosy environment for my soul. Thanks to all the staff for their friendly attitude and top service. This is the one of the restourants that you can trust your tummy to. The only thing you have... More

Coming to Dahab again for the third time, it's great to know where to go for a fresh, nutritious, and comforting meal. We discovered Red Cat, with it's friendly owner Mariana and all the Dahab regulars last year, and were so happy for having done so. Let's face it- eating out in Egypt isn't always satisfying. But i have never... More

Red Cat is the best place for a meal in Dahab, and returning after getting hooked on the unique atmosphere and amazing food last year, the only disappointment was the limited opening hours. But that was due to moving the restaurant to a bigger space across the street which makes perfect sense; upgraded locales to match the quality of the... More

Red Cat restaurant in Dahab. The welcoming atmosphere is what hits you first followed by the wonderful aroma of freshly cooking food there but not overpowering. The Restaurant itself is light but not bright. Seating near but not too close to others dinning. The service is attentive yet not rushed. Then the food itself first you look a delight to... More

The best place to chat and spend good time with friends during the long evenings in Dahab. The food is very tasty and fresh, I particularly recommend the guacamole and a variety of soups. Here you will meet a lot of nice and interesting people and want to return next time. We even visited an evening of poetry in the... More

Small and most time fully crowded, so need to book or befriend with the owner (it's easy). Healthy meals made of high quality ingredients. Very acceptable price for complex meal (aka business lunch)))) what business?!?!) — three meals lunch. Some things for the dinner very unique like meat leg cooked in vine on a slow fire. Few very traditional nicely... More

I could strongly recommend to every Russian and other who like russian cuisine to find some time and try "borsch" there. It is permanent problem for me while travel abroad to find food that my children (son and daughter) will eat - with Red Cat in Dahab it wasn't a problem - they ate faster than me, competing to each...

I'm so grateful to my friend that introduced me to RedCat. Food is incredibly tasty and so healthy. Marianna is beautiful in every way, thank you so much for the RedCat experience, very sad to be leaving! I will miss your Borsch and home cooked bread!

During my last trip to Dahab I visited Red Cat restaurant several times. Food was always excellent and also optically appealing presented. Ingredients are really fresh and hygiene standards on high level; I never had any problems what unfortunately does not apply to some other restaurants in Dahab. Thanks to Marianna and her team for great service.
