Several visits and the place remains the best place you can eat at in Dahab. The food is always fresh and tasty. Try their tasty pizza with cold beer. Friendly staff and fast service. It is very nice environment by the sea.

Stretching your feet among the pillows, drinking tea and watching the sea. We also had breakfasts here and one dinner - fresh fish - was superb.

Went for a beer after being super hassled by the guys outside and were so glad we weren't there for dinner as we were the only ones in there... Shame as they tried hard... We guess it's more happening during the day?
