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

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
