First class service and very friendly staff. The food was amazing and we ate there both nights of our stay. A mix of traditonal and comfort food and excellent prices! Looking forward to eating there again :)

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...

The Red Cat is without a shadow of a doubt the best restaurant in town : a welcoming place where you'll find delicate flavours & healthy food. Either you're a meat lover or a veggie, you'll love the place. A stay in Dahab without, believe me, one dinner at the Red Cat would be a massive mistake !

What a lovely place! These people don't spare any effort in delivering true quality food, all fresh and beautifully served! I've tried all sorts of places all across Egypt and it's rare to find something so uniquely lovely. They really care and are genuinely pleased to serve you. They even go the extra mile and prepare things that aren't on... More

The place where so many Freedivers have late lunch or dinner. Enough said! Plus Mariana and her staff are so nice. Highly recommended

Red Cat offers an excellent meal for a decent price. I enjoyed every bite of it, and I am looking forward to trying pretty much everything else they have on their rather diversified menu.
