This restaurant is obviously run with both competence in the kitchen and a lot of love from the owners. I have the echo what other reviewers have said about the Red Cat because we went to this place three times during the six days we were in Dahab. It's a clean, relaxed atmosphere in the dining area and you can... More

Russian owned and inspired menu, super fresh, clean and healthy modern meals. Highly recommend the cold beetroot soup & the cold kefir & veg soup.... After a hot day on the beach nothing better! A foodie highlight in Egypt!

Russian Salad is a must! Everything is freshly prepared and of high quality. Unique in its kind in Dahab. Though the location at Lighthouse is better, the interior is nice but lacks of the former coziness. Still: Not to be missed!

This place is great, lovely food, a great and super friendly hostess helping the non-Russian visitors with the menu. Everything had a nice homemade touch, especially the ginger lemonade and the oat cookies. The ingredients were all fresh and the dishes very tasty, an absolute must for everyone who wants to try something new (definitely for those not familiar with... More

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 is simply amazing... 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
