Food Urge is the place to eat if you enjoy sitting directly by the sea in a beautiful and peaceful setting and eating delicious Egyptian and English-style dishes (although, beeing a German guest, I loved the Egytian hint the “English”-dishes had, since I really prefer to eat local food when I am abroad). Food Urge is worth the 10minute stroll... More

great place for breakfast on the beach, or a chicken wrap at lunch, or a great cup of tea after a days diving.

Food Urge is the restaurant of the Dive Urge dive resort. A beautiful location directly on the beach. During my stay there I had breakfast every morning in my favourite chair, looking out to sea, and also various other meals and drinks. Particularly recommend the breakfast fruit pancakes and superb mango juice and mango lassi. Thanks to Nesimi for taking... More

Service is great always with a smile. Food is great too and varied! There is traditional Egyptian food and British food. Iftari on the beach during Ramadan was special.

This restaurant provides fresh, locally sourced and delicious food. I was more than happy to eat here during my diving holiday. The service is excellent and I was overwhelmed by just how beautiful the scenery is: only 4-5 metres away are the crystal clear waters of the Red Sea and, in the hazy distance, the mountains of Saudi Arabia call...

We ate here a couple of times during our stay at Dive Urge. If you are looking for a stroll outside of the main bay, it is worth visiting Food Urge, as they have a great chef there. We had a seafood platter on two nights which was amazing! The seafood was cooked to perfection and I couldn't get enough... More

Just north of downtown Dahab, you get a peaceful setting, direct access to the beach, overlooking the Eel Garden (so bring your togs and snorkelling gear). The food is excellent with a good variety of local fare and typical western food - highly recommend the Egyptian Breakfast and lunchtime wraps. The staff (Mesimi in particular) will make you feel welcome,... More

I stayed at Dive Urge and ate in and at other places. As in my review for Dive Urge the entire experience is relaxing and chilled. Staff are perceptive....seem to be around when you want them but not hovering when you don't want them. Food is lovely and the chef takes a pride in what he does...so its good and... More
