    Penguin Village is a well known backpacker's haunt in Dahab. The staff are fun, the rooms are cheap and the location can't be beat. The biggest draw for me, however, is their rooftop restaurant. The restaurant is literally on the beach front. You can walk a few steps from your bedouin cushions and dip your toes in the Red Sea. The Rooftop affords great views and at night the lights around the property jazz up the atmosphere. They also allow you to see the fish swimming in the water closeby.

    Favorite Dish: Everything I had, from breakfast to dinner, was really tasty and well prepared. You will not be disappointed.

  • Rush Dahab: 7 star delicacies and best parties

    The food standard and cleanliness is much much higher than expected from a restaurant in a small desert resort. I have tasted food matching in quality the ones i had in Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton hotels. At night, when Rush throws it parties, no other venture in Dahab retains any crowd ! they maintain best mood, nicest music and party crowd.

    Favorite Dish: Rib-eye stake with wine sauce

    Fresh Seafood

    by Vabate Updated Jun 22, 2006

    Dahab Restaurant

    The manager at Monica's hotel recommended this seafood restaurant. Located on the next block, on the same side of the street at Monica's, this restuarant has it's menu located at stand next to it. Pick out your dinner - head, eyes and teeth staring straight at you - then the staff will seat you. Start with soup (fish broth), salad and bread while your selected fish is being prepared. Next comes the main course with fresh greens. I finish with a Turkish coffee. Delicious, fresh and very statisfying. Table seating inside or outside. Back to my hotel for a quick shower and nap before my Sinai Tour hotel pick up at 11:00pm.

    Price: Set menu 20E + 5 for turkish coffee or US$5. Beer is available.

    It's so odd eating fish after a day of snorkelling or diving!

    In Dabah, I usually find the food are quite expensive. To my surprise, I loicated a very good price restaurant on the main road. It mainly serves locals but not English menu in front of the restaurant. A chicken set meal cost 13 EGP and Beef set meal cost 11 EGP (May 2006). The set has soup, salad, rice and bread.

    On the way to the Blue Hole

    We had lunch at the Dolphin Cafe on our second day in Dahab...unfortunately the food wasn't the best and the service wasn't close to that at the Nubian Lodge. We kicked ourselves afterwards because we had almost gone elsewhere.

    Our dinner!
    1 more image

    We ate here two nights in a row with our guide...he is Muslim and it was Ramadun when we were there so he asked us to join him at 'breakfast' (his 5:30 pm meal)... We had seafood the first night then all sorts of yummy things the second night. The staff were really nice and the restaurant was pretty cool.

    The only downside would be the little girls who kept trying to sell us things, although they were funny for the first 10 minutes or so they did tend to get a little annoying. I think that they go in to most of the restaurants in Dahab though so there's no escaping them...

    Al Capone

    Shrimp pizza

    Al Capone is one of the many restaurants along the beach in Assalah. I had a shrimp pizza and a juice and for that I paid 45 pounds. It was more expensive than other restaurants I tried, but I guess you also pay for the location. Away from the sea you will find the cheapest restaurants in Dahab.
    What is good in Dahab is that the price in the menu is acctually the price, and no 22% for service and taxes is added.

    Cats

    Cat by the Red Sea

    There are a lot of cats around the restaurants in Dahab and they can be a real annoyance. Many of the restaurants have cushions and low tables so the food comes close to the cats. You can be lucky and eat without cats, but another time when you come back to the same restaurant the cats will not leave you alone, and you have to watch your food all the time. Sometimes the restaurants give you water to spray on the cats.

    Tarboush: Our favourite breakfast spot

    by Philippa_M Written Mar 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View from Tarboush towards the Eel Garden

    Small, chilled-out restaurant on the north end of the bay (Asla district), right next to the Eel Garden dive spot. Feels more open and remote than some of the other bustling establishments towards the centre of the bay, with the requisite shady khosha right on the beach giving a lovely view.

    Favorite Dish: We only had one thing to eat here - breakfast, almost every morning for our entire stay! Fresh green salad, pitta, hummous, garlicy fuul (delicious saucy, lemony bean dish), potato chips, boiled egg. Perfect for vegetarians, very filling, just the thing to start a full day of diving.
