We went to the Shark several times during our trip to Dahab because it was simply so good. Great steaks, seafood and my favourite: chicken curry. The fresh mangojuice and the cold karkade are the best! The starters are generous and delicious. Location excellent. The kitchen and the restaurant are very clean so its also a very safe place to...

This is my first time in Dahab. Shark is very clean and the kebab was wonderful. Recommended, specially in cold/windy days.

Eating at the Shark restaurant Dahab is a very pleasant thing to do! The kitchen is great, the view too. The men working there do their job with a lot of joy and friendlyness.

Great appeal from the moment of entering the restaurant to ordering, eating, & leaving. Good variety of items on the menu, but I have to recommend any seafood being this close to the Red Sea. Service exceeded expectations.

Shark is the best Egyptian restaurant in Dahab. There is no contest. Nothing even close. I ate at 6 restaurants along the strip and none compared to Shark. The wait staff are professional, attentive beyond courtesy, fun, pleasant, and efficient. The decor is warm, the background music (damn whomever invented music while dining out) not too loud and conducive to... More

We went once during our trip to dahab and honestly it's not bad for dahab but we expected it to be better from what we heard. If you're used to good Egyptian fish restaurants you won't be very impressed with their sea food. I hated the way they served all the food in one big platter. However, it's not that... More

After taking dive courses for two weeks, we wanted to take our instructors/hosts out for dinner and this is the restaurant they recommended. It's on the Lighthouse strip in Dahab, which means lots of people and lots of begging cats. Shark is laid out like most other restaurants on the strip - outdoors with traditional low seating on the water... More
