If I had reviewed it after my first visit, it would have been a 4 star.

I went for lunch with my family. We were the only ones in the place but we still needed to flag down a waiter to get our digital menu. However, once we recieved our drinks and food it was amazing. The view is also breathtaking.

We then decided to go back for a late dinner (8:30pm ish) again, we had to flag down a waiter. This time it took over 15 minutes. We ordered. It took over 2 hours to get our food. I honestly believe we only got it because we threatened to walk out. My order came wrong.

Pro:
Location
Price is decent (not cheap but not expensive)
View
Atmosphere
Food quality
Free WiFi
Fresh juices

Cons:
Attentiveness of staff
Wait time for food
Missing essential for items such as guacamole and sour cream

The place has a spectacular location on the sea, cozy atmosphere with friendly and professionally trained staff. Menu has wide variety of Mexican delicious food. As a coffee-addict person, I can say that their coffee is out of this world. Lemon cake dessert is a must try. If you're in Dahab, this place is worth visiting

I guess this place is the most beautifull place in dahab. Location is brilliant in the center of the promenade, directly on the sea with a very creative and unique decoration. Staff is very helpfull and polite and not pushy at all. About food we tried most of the menu, dipping sauces are heavenly tasty. Main plates and appetizers unfortunetely not as good as we expected concerning taste and portions putting in consideration that prices are very expensive especially in a foodie moderately priced destination like Dahab. They dont sell alcohol but you are allowed to get from outside.

When going to visit this restaurant, be sure that you will be welcome here, and you will be properly serviced and they will take care of you and your food. We all know that the most important thing for a restaurant is the work of the kitchen. I was lucky to see the backstage kitchen of the restaurant Jekis. I like the team work of the staff and their passion and love for cooking. The menu was developed on two different systems of traditional Mexican and mixed American-Mexican.
Here you will find real dishes that you can rarely meet outside of Mexico, they also have American burgers and tex-mex dishes on their menu.
If you are in Dahab you can not pass by this delightful place.
By the fact that it is also distinguished by its creative modern design. Everything is made of wood, leather and natural materials. Even the straws for drinks are glass. Do not worry, I checked they wash them thoroughly, and before filing barista sterilize each separately)
