“best fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Best tasting fish of all the restaurants we visited on the strip, came on the bone and fileted in front of us so we know it was the one we had chosen. Shellfish was better as well. Starters here not as good as the others though.

“Good food, fantastic servce”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Really enjoyed our meal here (so much so that we recommended it to an Irish couple on our dive boat, and we saw them in there that night!). Nice food, really really good service and great value for money. Try the lamb chops, they were great.

Massive portions though!

“Wonderful food and lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

A really pretty little restaurant right on the sea. The food was great, with the best egyptian bread and dips to start. The service was really good, particular the waiter Sendbad... overall a great evening and my favourite of the Dahab restaurants!

“Very happy to recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Living in Taba, we've tried out most of the restaurants in Dahab, and chose El Fanar as a good spot to bring some friends for a little Egyptian Hospitality.They were delighted with the quality of the food, and the personal attention throughout the meal. I'd be delighted to recommend the El Fanar to anyone visiting Dahab - the location is great, and a wonderful evening is pretty much guaranteed
