I can not describe the food quality because me and my friends could not order at all, the service was very bad and the waiter was very rude. Lots of places have busy nights but that doesn't mean the waiter can simply treat guests this way, he kept ignoring our calls and I had to go to the counter twice... More

The back area of this shop is amazing. It's cozy and offers a good light meal from pastas to pizzas that don't hit you hard that you can't move for an hour. Having a kettle of bedouin tea with a piece of tiramisu will make you breathe a sigh of delightful satisfaction.......the prices are REALLY good too

Most cozy spot to eat at, in Dahab. Every time we visit dahab we have to go to Athanor. Must try the carbonara pasta and shrimp pizza. Thick shakes are a delight too!

Cozy, welcoming, beautiful coffee shop and restaurant, that roasts its own coffee beans and makes the best coffees ever, serves delicious milkshakes, bakes its pizzas in an Italian stove oven, offers generous servings of pasta dishes, and serves a super tasty homemade banana cake and tantalizing chocolate-banana pancakes - all this in a gorgeous backyard garden-terrace intimate atmosphere where you will really feel at home. (Take away and delivery also available).
