This place probably has the best steaks in Dahab. The restaurant is brightly lit and the staff are very helpful. As someone else has posted no feral cats so it smells good unlike a lot of eateries in Dahab.

Eaten here 3 times now and their steaks are fantastic. You can either eat in the Brasserie or in the adjacent bar.

One of the few places in Dahab that serves alcohol, and there are no cats indoor! British comfort food, with options of steaks, salads, and gratinated tortilla chips as some of the options. very friendly staff!

Very good food and brilliant value for money (approximately 30 GBP for 2 for 1 starter, 2 main courses, 1 dessert). Only 1 menu (the lunchtime menu) is available on a Saturday night.
