Good place to just enjoy

I’ve been to Dahab in October for the first time and back for a second time.
I really like the food and I think it’s simple but good and healthy. I’m not so much into deep fried stuff, so I enjoy their fresh smoothies and actually everything else on the menu. Tea is tasty as well and they sell sustainable water bottles including 4 weeks free refills (that was in Oct, not sure if they still do).

Healthy comfort food in a peaceful setting

Came with a non-vegan friend for breakfast and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. We tried the almond latte, banana smoothie bowl and raw brownie (115 EGP total), which were all very tasty and filling. A little pricey at first glance but very reasonable considering the quality and ingredients (some places in the area charge more than 30 pounds for a simple espresso, here you can get an almond milk latte for 25!). Everything is freshly made and served in a very quiet, peaceful and cozy setting. Note that you have to order at the counter.

A positive experience all around. Will definitely come here again!

Beautiful and delicious!

Such a serene place, with local organically sourced items, presented beautifully and that taste yummy!!
Today I had the lunch plate with brown rice and sesame seeds, purslane salad, walnut and sun dried tomato pâté and also the herbed cashew cream. Waiting a while and then had their raw orange cacao cake (delish!) and tasted my friends snickers ice cream - it was really good too!
Can’t wait to try their whole menu!
Prices are reasonable and the staff is lovely :)

Pros: beautiful location

amazing healthy food

beautiful place with peaceful atmosphere. really healthy food :) tasty desserts. a wonderful place!

Pros: really healthy, lovely atmosphere/ambience, supports sea shepherd

Cons: expensive compared to local prices


20 Apr 2018

Thanks for your review, our prices are completely inline with other local restaurants.
Falafels are still super cheap but given we use high end imported cacao, coconut oil, spirulina etc I feel we give excellent value for money.

What a gem!

I coud easily live in Dahab because of this place. The snickers nice cream was the best vegan dessert ive had in my whole life. I didnt try the breakfast because i dont like sweet stuff in the morning. The lunches and wraps were healthy and well priced considering you could pay double in the west. The highlight was desserts for sure.
Go up to order! ( they need a sign) I sat for almost 45 min waiting to be served before i went up.....

Pros: supports seashepherd, good location , good eco initiatives

Cons: no savoury breakfast options., no table service


20 Apr 2018

Thanks for your review. Yes we will put up a sign about the hatch for orders.
We have savoury food all day.
Hummus wraps for breakfast.

Haven in the Desert

What a dream to find a vegan cafe in this part of Egypt.!! Delicious & nutritionally balanced, every mouthful is appreciated. High-end vegan food in an area where food resources are scarce & most of the food available in this region is 'tampered' with chemicals & EDTA (check it out on line-not good)...if it wasn't for this cafe i would have left Egypt much sooner! Bravo!! X

Had To Restrain Myself !

Once I discovered this fabulous vegan/ raw restaurant in Dahab's funkiest location I couldn't stop; I was there 2 x a day sometimes.

The stunning food is absolutely to die for, for a start, it looks like it should be framed and hung on a wall the presentation is so exquisite; and after eating you leave feel fantastically alive and glowing.

The Mexican Special on Saturdays was a particular delight; love that chilli oil running over my fingers as I stuffed the bean burrito, the 100% raw vegan 'sour cream' was perfection and it was all topped off with a sublime guacamole.

Of the lunches i got stuck on the 'Toona' and 'Sundried Tomato with Mountain Herbs' options, but the others were great too. I especially loved the salads with real flowers in them and the blended-in-house herbal and floralteas were a great night cap; to be enjoyed on a cushion watching shooting stars..and I had at least one raw cake every day of my stay..

In summary it's a hard call but I think the 'Choc fudge' was my fave menu item.

Sad to leave (Dahab and) Marine Garden's Cafe; am craving these gorgeous treats already!

P.S. I heard they now have some amazing new smoothies on the menu; I think I will have to return as soon as possible ;-)

Pros: Delicioous, Nutritious, Ethical

Cons: Too far from my homeland!

What a great addition to the Dahab food scene - a beautiful restaurant, with gorgeous beach views, but most importantly: serving amazingly fresh & tasty food, which will definitely have you feeling good!

Great sustainable vegan food

Eating at Sheila's place is a delight for all the senses: close to the ocean, a nice breeze (or more), always interesting people to talk to even when you're alone, jokes with Sheila (sometimes in need of some explanation when you're not English...)
and oh yes, super delicious food from morning till evening, always looking forward to the next meal or next dessert.
The place to be to enjoy vegan food from a great creative cook!

Pros: Friendly and funny team, local sustainable vegan food, always in for a joke

Cons: nowhere to go on closing days...

Sheila is the best and her crew too

There's feel-good food, delicious home-made tea's, funny and kind staff, beautiful view, healthy no-guilt desserts and amazing smoothies. We love to hang out there for a whole day, just with a smoothie and a book and wait till the time passes by till it's finally time to eat again :D

When you have "belly-bugs", ask Sheila for her special garlic tea ( it's the only disgusting thing she makes )

Pros: Sheila, Green Smoothies , DESSERTS!!

Cons: I have to be honest, the wifi isn't the best ;), but that's not necessary anyway, enjoy the view,, food and company in stead
