“Beautiful spot with great seafood and service”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

We were recommended to eat here by a dutch friend who now lives in Dahab and eats here regularly.
It was exactly as she said: fantastic seafood: we shared a calamari and king prawn platter.
Service was great and dips and lovely bread came out to start and the staff insisted we tried an Egyptian dessert on them and some Bedouin tea to finish off. All really good.
Highly recommend: will be back - thanks

“Great welcome and great seafood”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Have enjoyed many good evenings at El Fanar where Mohamed AlI, Sinbad and the rest of the staff do everything to make one feel welcome. The fish and seafood is excellent and they are very honest about their pricing. With starters, water and dessert thrown in, they will happily open your own wine or beer, no corkage charge! You can see the crystal clear sea from your table and, on chilly evenings, enjoy the warmth of the fire.

“OK”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Found the service a bit frosty when we got there but the food was good and the staff friendlier but didn't like filling out a customer service questionaire with the waiter sitting next to us !
