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.

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

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!

I had two breakfast and two meals in Penguin Camp restaurant. The ambience is very good, the sitting is excellent and facing the Gulf of Aqaba, the Saudi Arabia is just 17KM across the Gulf. The prices are reasonable for tourist. Each plate cost 20 EGP. (May 2006). See pics of all dishes. Enjoy your meal.

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.

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.

On our first day in Dahab we had lunch at the Beduion Lodge just a little way down from our hotel... It was really good food and the staff were very nice!! Their mangoe lassie drink was fantastic too! We should have gone back for a second visit...

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 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.
