“Bad service and bad behaviour of the waiters...”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

WORST CHOICE EVER! The service was terrible; there was no contact to the waiters and it took for ages to order; we did not have the opportunity for desert and it was imposible to get the bill. In addition the food was only half cooked. We did not argue with the waiters but only decided not to leave a tip. Afterwards, the waiters were yelling at us on the street and gave us the f* hand when we passed by. It was the most horrible and immature behaviour I have ever met in Egypt.
So if you're looking for a nice and cosy dinner in Dahab choose another restaurant - there are so many with nice service, chatting and smiling waiters.

“Friendly, good service, reasonably priced”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

The Yalla bar is a relaxed, bedouin style restaurant, on the sea front in Dahab. It's much like many of the other restaurants and bars in Dahab. The noticeable differences are that it serves alcohol, which not all restaurants in Dahab do, and the service is friendly and more attentive.

The menu is good, with a mix of offerings - steaks, burgers, fajitas, stir frys, kebabs. It all sounds a bit americanised but actually it's got a definite Egyptian slant to it.

I do think some bars and restaurants in Dahab take liberties on pricing - but The Yalla feels a bit fairer. Most mains being between 40 and 80 Egyptian pounds. A local beer being 15 E£ and a cocktail about E£ 30-40.

“Good 'hang out' spot”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

I'm a regular visitor to Dahab and often use Yalla Bar to relax during the day. You can either sit at a table (in the sun or shade) or relax on the deck chairs in the sun. They have steps leading down the sea so you can go for a swim to cool off without even having to leave the bar. There is always a nice atmosphere about the place and staff are very friendly. It's just nice being able to relax in the sun and doing a bit of swimming whilst being waited on for food and drinks. I'm going back in April and will certainly use this place to hang out.
