Superb - an oasis in the desert.

We've been to Dakhla a couple of times (kitesurfing) and we pratically ate all our dinners at the Villa Dakhla. The place is nice and cosy, the staff very kind and swift and the food is amazing. We had pratically all the dishes and my favorite was the camel. The wifi works nicely. The prices make... read more

This place is surprisingly quiet and peaceful. a superb view on the ocean. you feel like you are miles away from the town. service impeccable by smiling and friendly people. The food is delicious... definitely worth a visit.

Definitely sit on the terrace!!! The view is lovely and peaceful...at least it was at lunch! From an array of seafood, I chose the grilled lobster or rather langouste which came cooked to perfection...i really enjoyed it as well as the chat with the owner Jocelyne! The seafood in Dakhla is superior and my langouste was sweet and very fresh....must... More

I went for lunch and had the grilled lobster...nothing too fancy however it needs to be well cooked, and it was! Veeeery nice! Sitting on the terrace with a superb view just made the meal so very enjoyable...yes I would come again!

We had high expectations. The service was good.The menu had a large variety with very high prices but unfortunately the quality of the food did not live up to the expectation. The fish soup was tinned, the salad was tasteless. The risotto was acceptable. The desert was nice. Overall, disappointing and expensive.

Food: The best in Dakhla. Perfectly cooked shrimp and fish. Flavors in the prawn avocado salad were perfectly balanced. The seafood stew had a unique mix of spice, garlic and moroccan flavors. Fresh baked bread that was rich and crusty. I often try to stay away from bread and I ate the whole thing here with the olive spread. Dessert:... More

Well, that's a fact. There just ain't too many restaurants in town. But the food was really good and the seating area on the seaside is really nice. Service is excellent, everybody speaks at least 3 if not 4 languages (Arabic, French, English and Spanish). Choice of seafood is excellent and the preparation of the food is no worse than... More
