“great chuncky chips!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

One of the few places in Dahab that serves alcohol, and there are no cats indoor! British comfort food, with options of steaks, salads, and gratinated tortilla chips as some of the options. very friendly staff!

“Very good dishes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

Very good food and brilliant value for money (approximately 30 GBP for 2 for 1 starter, 2 main courses, 1 dessert). Only 1 menu (the lunchtime menu) is available on a Saturday night.

“best option for none egyption food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

We visited here on two occasions during our visit and it was superb on both occasions! Would reccomend the steak, mouth watering! I was in a group of 4 and not one of us had a bad word to say about the place.
Staff friendly and helpful and very reasonable prices!
its one of the few places you can eat here without being harassed by cats and they also serve alcohol!

“best non egyptian food in Dahab”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

The Chef or Chefs are amazing, owner super sweet and friendly. All the things I ate there were just perfect. Pizza outstanding... salads...mind blowing.. and the main courses.. a dream. I would be even more happy if on the menu we could find some of the egyptian dishes... The Essence restaurant is a place were standards are very high that is why I think it would be a great idea for the amazing egyptian cusine. I am sure we would love it. The only minus was the waiting time..for the waiter to come and take the order. I always recommend the place to my friends and always coming back.
