“Delicious food, lovely staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

I stayed at Dive Urge for a week. I'm a real foodie and Food Urge was spot on. Generous and tasty, beautifully prepared food from sumptuous Egyptian breakfasts and enormous pancakes to delicate fish meals... You couldn't beat it! Gorgeous food, beach-shack-chic decor, lovely, friendly staff and all just twenty, sandy foot steps from one of the best bits of reef in town. I miss that place!

“Fresh food with great vegetarian choices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

Really great food here. I'm a fussy veggie and my husband a pescatarian and we were very impressed. The location is perfect, right on the waters edge and if its windy they also have a beautiful glass inside area. Food is freshly cooked, very well seasoned and the atmosphere is relaxed in a truly stunning location. The perfect place to enjoy a romantic meal but just as good for a hearty breakfast or lunch. Service spot on too. They also have Bedouin style seating areas and one of them has a fire pit which is rather lovely to sit round with an after dinner drink.

“Yummy, yummy, mish, mish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

From the incredible breakfasts, to sunset dinners food urge has got to be the best dining experience in Dahab. We have been staying at Dive Urge for two weeks, and haven't even bothered to try any of the other restaurants, not even the places within a few strides from here. Apart from the fact that the kitchen is absolutely spotless (not a fly to be seen) the restaurant itself is just so beautiful, relaxing, romantic and comfortable. Mohammed's energy seems to know no bounds, he is the most attentive person we've ever experienced, and attends to your every need without having to ask (ask him for a game of back gammon, but don't expect to win). All the food is fresh, tasty and beautifully presented, we have not had one meal that we've been disappointed with. Apart from the great dive urge experience, we consider ourselves to have found a perfect gem in Dahab and bless every minute of the relaxing, chilled out ambience of this not to be missed oasis.

“Superb restaurant on the sea edge!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

A varied menu but nothing too much trouble if you ask. Leaving hungry is not an option! The relaxed atmosphere with friendly and efficient service makes this a must when visiting Dahab.

Fruit pancakes make a great start to the day and a sa pick me up between dives!

A beach location, part of Dive Urge - great place to stay as well.

“always great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

staying at diveurge we are fortunate to have the lovely restaurent "food urge" at our disposal. a little out of the way in the northern end of dahab but away from the pestering and usual nonesense the main promenade brings.
The food is always great, I reccomend the Calamari tagine.

Breakfast lunch and dinner is always served with a smile. Clean kitchens, friendly crew and no nonsense.
