“Recommend blue cheese & peppercorn steaks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

We were recommended this place by our dive instructor who has worked in Dahab for 5yrs and claimed it did the best steaks. We ordered one fillet steak and one veal (as they run out of regular steak) one with blue cheese sauce and one with peppercorn sauce. I was a bit apprehensive about the veal as not had it before but i thought it tasted nicer than the regular one. I agree with other comments that service is slower here than other places and a little more pricey but if you are not in a rush it's food It's very good quality. Our steaks were 140 Egyptian pounds each but that included free starters and some fruit to finish. There are plenty of other things on the menu at a cheaper price but would recommend the steak!
