Food Urge is the place to eat if you enjoy sitting directly by the sea in a beautiful and peaceful setting and eating delicious Egyptian and English-style dishes (although, beeing a German guest, I loved the Egytian hint the “English”-dishes had, since I really prefer to eat local food when I am abroad). Food Urge is worth the 10minute stroll from the center of Dahab, and easy to find, since the “promenade” ends there –which doesn’t mean you can’t continue on along the beach in the same direction after enjoying a great meal! Highly recommended!
Food Urge is the place to be (and eat or just drink something and chill and relax...) and the place I spent most of the time of my holiday while staying at Dive Urge, of course only whenever I wasn’t diving ;-)

We love that you enjoyed the unique vibe that we have , being at the end of the promenade...we should say European dishes really, but we do also do more traditional Egyptian meals upon request. Defo worth the 10 minute stroll and gives you time to 'walk it off' afterwards. :)

great place for breakfast on the beach, or a chicken wrap at lunch, or a great cup of tea after a days diving.

Food Urge is the restaurant of the Dive Urge dive resort. A beautiful location directly on the beach. During my stay there I had breakfast every morning in my favourite chair, looking out to sea, and also various other meals and drinks.
Particularly recommend the breakfast fruit pancakes and superb mango juice and mango lassi.
Thanks to Nesimi for taking care of me.

Thank Carl J

Service is great always with a smile. Food is great too and varied! There is traditional Egyptian food and British food. Iftari on the beach during Ramadan was special.

This restaurant provides fresh, locally sourced and delicious food. I was more than happy to eat here during my diving holiday. The service is excellent and I was overwhelmed by just how beautiful the scenery is: only 4-5 metres away are the crystal clear waters of the Red Sea and, in the hazy distance, the mountains of Saudi Arabia call out to you. A meal here is a delight to be savoured. Thank you!
