Was coaxed in by the owner just because Forsha's was closed, unfortunately the food, although being edible, wasn't as tasty as Forsha's next door.

Had many fabulous meals and excellent service at El Mundo, Dahab. Food always super fresh and so tasty. Clean restaurant, excellent friendly staff who are very helpful and will get anything you ask for including a bottle of local wine, which is nice as most restaurants in Dahab do not serve wine. Prices are very good for the quality of... More

Fabulous food and friendly service. The seafood, especially the prawns are amazing! Ignore the other reviews we were given a fair price and the food was always fresh and delicious. The staff are very friendly and helpful and will go out for wine for you and not charge ridiculous prices. Lovely setting on the waterfront and nice chilled out music.... More

Just returned from a week in dahab. Ate here several times. The fish and seafood were excellent. The fish is weighed and a price agreed before it is cooked.The staff are very welcoming. Wine is obtainable which is a great plus. The location is fabulous right beside the sea. Can't recommend highly enough.

It's rare to have a bad experience at any of the restaurants on the main Dahab promenade, but this certainly was one of them. I ordered the the coconut curry (which sounded good on their menu and was reasonably priced ) but didn't stay to taste it. The table looked dirty so I wiped it with some Kleenex which turned...

What started out as a smiling sweet service industry ended up with food we didn't order. We are easy people, if someone messes up and order, we will take it, minor details. Life is too short. However, this place was an exception. They pushed food on us we didn't want and said that we ordered it. They brought it to... More

Tourists stay away from this place. I was talked into going there by the nice guy on the front who showed me the menu which had reasonable prices all around 90 Egyptian pounds. I ordered my food with 5 starters (included) I was then asked if I wanted one type of fish or a mixed platter I decided for the... More

We were taken to El Mundo in Dahab by our tour guide after a trip to St Catherines Monastery - a wonderful trip so we expected somewhere decent to eat..... We were taken into Dahab via a filthy back street, rubbish and dumped stuff everywhere - when we got to El Muno we were absolutely dismayed - the floor was... More

This place used to be very good and I can see why it might have had some good reviews but I would advise not coming here. Some friends of mine came here this week and got completly ripped off. They ordered fish of the menu, which should have cost about 150 le at most but were charged over 750 le... More
