Decent fresh seafood restaurant. Great location. Fab fresh baked bread and dips. We also tried the spinach pasta tagliatelle. It was okay but missed some taste like garlic and saffron as they mentioned in their menu but it wasn't there.

The food, the service, and the view are all unbeatable in my opinion. You sit on a deck with waves of the red sea crashing beneath your feet.

We visited this restaurant in Dahab and it was a great disappointment. He offered 20% off the menu but when we asked for steak, he said it would only be 10%.

I went there with a friend. The food was delicious, and the service was marvellous. My only complaint was that prices are a bit more expensive than other restaurants in the area.

Myself and my partner came from Sharm to Dahab for one reason and it was to visit this restaurant and it was outstanding. The service is the best I have received in Egypt and I have eaten out and tried many places. The food is delicious. We had soups to start (tomato & seafood) and then shrimps and the steak.... More
