“New owner from April here to make a mark”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

New Brazilian owner started working in April and has redesigned the dishes and ensuring good service and food is always given. It is slightly away from the main strip, which makes it more relaxed and cheaper than the majority of restaurants.

“Best Egyptian food in Dahab”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

I spent over a week in Dahab and this restaurant has the best food in town!! Good atmosphere near the beach with a chill out area and a huge terrace!! I had the privilege to personally meet the Chef who is enthusiastic with Egyptian food, there's also fresh pasta and pizza in the menu for the less adventurous. Unmissable is the fresh fish they offer every day. I do personally recommend the Ramses chicken pot and the Baklava for dessert!! The staff is really friendly and kind. I already recommended this place to my friends and I will return for sure!

“One of the best restaurants in Dahab”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We had dinner at the Penguin restaurant a few times during our vacation and liked it a lot. Located towards the quietest part of Dahab. They offer a great variety of delicious and well presented typical egyptian food. In addition, you will be surrounded by a good vibe and really kind staff.
If you are looking for a good place to eat proper egyptian food at a good price, this is your place!!
