“Best on the whole front”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

The staff were very kind and accommodating (as were all along the parade) but this place stood apart for the quality of the food and that little extra special touches.
There are so many little restaurants and cafes along the pedestrian street in Dahab offering excellent choice of places to eat & shops to browse but Sharks is an absolute must early on in your stay because you'll want to go back for the atmosphere and huge choice on the menu.
Not for feline-phobics though as there are a few under the tables cruising around.

“Best Restaurants in Dahab”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Great food, great services, very clean. You are able to choose fresh fish of the day, which is exceptionally well prepared and cooked. As soon as you sit down, you are given hand cleans to clean your hands, then after the meal traditional Egyptian hand wash at the table. We had two great meals here. I had fish both times but Friends had meat the second time and all meals were excellent. Only down side is you have to remember to buy your alcoholic drinks before you go in as it is a dry restaurant but the do not charge corkage and dispose of the empties for you.

No hesitation to return when I return to Dahab.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Perfect food, service.
This place is the best in Dahab.
In general its not cheap but much cheaper than other (not good) restaurants in Dahab.

The only drawback is the number of cats passing by while you eat, there must be a way to limit this (dahab problem)...

“OJ.”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Very clean. Squirt of hand gel given on arrival. They have fish on ice outside but go and choose your own and make sure you know how to spot a fresh fish. Portions as in all restaurants in Egypt are HUGE! The orange juice! Best I have had in many years!

“Excellent service, big portions”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

One of a large number of choices along the promenade. Firstly, the rapport with the man outside trying to persuade you to come in was very warm. No hard sell, just professional and friendly. From leaning your hands at the start of the meal, through attentive service (including helping you clear off the cats!), the staff are excellent.

Nice meals, v large portions, and a good choice if you're spending a few days here.
