A friendly, welcoming family owned business located in one of the best spots Dahab can offer, right on the sea front at Eel Garden Dive and Snorkelling site. We offer you tasty, freshly prepared food all day long, from light snacks to full evening meals prepared to order; including Egyptian Cuisine. If it’s not on the menu, ask us for your favourite dish and we will do our best to rustle something special up for you. If you’re just looking for a place to sip a few cold drinks and spend the day chilling we also offer a variety of refreshing hot and cold drinks, freshly squeezed fruit juices and tasty Smoothies. Enjoy our comfortable, Egyptian/Bedouin style low seated dining area, dedicated sun lounging section with plenty of beds to laze on and soak up some rays, and a little chill out zone on our roof terrace offering the most amazing panoramic views as far as the eyes can see across the red sea to the rusty coloured mountains of Arabia.
