Nice place for Eastern European food. Borsch highly recommend! Staff friendly. Service good. Will certainly visit again. Food very tasty and clearly made with attention to detail. Not just thrown together.

A place that reflect the characteristic of the manager. Clean, organized, wide selection of food, healthy and cosy. Russian oriented cousine, here you can find probably the best Borsh soup in town. Quality price it s a winner, for take away or eat there, your belly will be happy !!!

The meal I had at the red cat was by FAR, the best meal I had on my trip. Everything from the appetizers to the desserts was impeccable. Marian (the owner) creates a cozy environment so much so that you really feel like she and her family are the ones cooking for you and she would get out of her... More

This place has just incredible good food! It was such a pleasure to find Ukrainian/Russian food far far away from Russia in hot Dahab. This restaurant is really clean, staff is nice and friendly, food is just excellent for very very good prices! Will eat there again and again, and recommend to everyone.

2 or 3 meals a day and you'll not get enough of this restaurant. They've mastered the art mixing flavours and how to present them. Mariana the owner, I believe, is behind all the recipes and always present and pleasant, Luba a great smiling and helpful host. All in all a feast for your tung, nose and eyes. Can't recommend...
