Lovely cosy restaurant on the seafront, lovely staff that are nearby but not intrusive, you get a complimentary bottle of mineral water when you sit down along with complimentary dips and hot bread. Main courses are very good, especially the steak and mixed grills. and you get free cake at the end, you can bring your own alcohol and they will provide an ice bucket for you, they also do good shiesa. Definitely the best restaurant in Dahab.

My husband and I had a lovely meal in Sharks Restaurant a couple of weeks ago. I had eaten there before on previous visits but this was the first for my husband. The setting is gorgeous with lovely sea views and good comfortable seating with cushions and furnishings in all colours. It is a very attractive place both by day and by night when the lanterns are all lit and the reflections of the fairy lights are twinkling on the sea.
We chose a combination of the beautiful fresh fish they had on offer and picked out exactly what we would like to eat. We had a combination of grouper, clams, squid and gorgeous prawn all lovely and fresh and cooked in the style I requested.
Whilst we were waiting for our main course, we were served complimentary fresh made pitta bread and dips. These are really good and filling so a starter is not needed especially if you are having as big a main course as we had chosen. A small bottle of mineral water is on your table when you arrive.
The main course seafood mix was spectacluar with everything tasting so fresh. We loved it and although it was an expensive choice as per their menu by UK prices it was good value. As they weighed out the fish, I asked how much it would cost and was told 375EGP. As it happened, even with an extra bottle of water, a complimentary chocolate cake dessert and the starter, the price stayed at 375EGP which we were really happy with. I know you can bargain down costs but in these quiet times, were were quite happy to pay this for such a high quality meal.
The staff were all lovely and very attentive. Hand gel is offered when you first arrive and then formal hand washing is offered at the end of your mail course with 'Arabian Nights' style copper jug of warm water and a bowl - it makes you feel very pampered.
The menu offered a good variety of foods and prices. The views across the sea were to die for and coupled with the brilliant customer service, the lovely setting, I would not hesitate to recommend Sharks to everyone for both day and night time dining and breaks.

I love this place!! Been a few times but this was one of the best evenings. Toby and Fi at Dahab Holidays https://www.facebook.com/groups/dahabholidays/ organised it - including getting someone to buy some beer/wine for us (the restaurant doesn't serve alcohol for obvious reasons) We had amazing service - and far too much food. I had prawns - four of them - and they were ENORMOUS!! And absolutely perfectly cooked. There are quite a few stray cats. But they generally don't bother you too much unless you feed them. So if you don't like them, don't feed them
