We hadn't expected our favourite restaurant in Egypt to be an Italian one ! Absolutely delicious food. Pasta, gnocchi ,pizza, carpaccio and stria bread amongst some of the fare we sampled ! A bonus as well being able to wash it all down with some good wine ! We do agree with other reviews that it would be great if they served local beer.
Lovely location and really friendly service. Can't recommend it highly enough. Not the cheapest of restaurants in Dahab but worth every penny . Go and try it you will definitely not be disappointed.

The food was standard Italian, similar to that found in many major cities... so if you like Italian food or Pizza, you will appreciate this place... but it really is exceptional for the romantic, yet no-fuss atmosphere in the evening.. the lighting, the music, and the staff make it an ideal spot for a romantic date or a quiet meal with family and friends... for me, it was unforgettable to share an understated but beautiful evening on the shores of the Red Sea with someone special... (and we managed to sneak in our dog, which waited serenely for us under our table, too! But don't tell...)

El Dorado's food is excellent the service is good and the situation i.e. right on the beach, perfect. The only let down was that they only serve Heineken Beer - when my partner asked for the local beer they didn't have any - we also heard someone at the next table asking for Egyption beer too - Get some in!

Fantastic homemade Italian food, what a treaty nd a change from the usual food in Dahab. Aubergine parmiagani was as good as any I have ever had and great lasagne. Also a decent red by the glass.

El Dorado offers excellent Italian food in a relaxed and charming atmosphere right on the beach.

There is a great variety of real Italian food on offer including a wide variety fantastic fresh pasta. Better still, you can wash this down with a glass of wine, another rareity amongst Dahab's restaurants.

Whilst the prices are slightly more than usual for Dahab, it's very much worth it.
