Lovely peaceful place on the beach, just on the northern edge of town. The food is really good and I ended up eating there every day - I recommend the Sinai Chicken!

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

We love that you enjoyed the unique vibe that we have , being at the end of the promenade...we should say European dishes really, but we do also do more traditional Egyptian meals upon request. Defo worth the 10 minute stroll and gives you time to 'walk it off' afterwards. :) 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

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
