“Rip off , beware , never again ”
1 of 5 bubbles Review of Sea Bride

Sea Bride
Ranked #75 of 107 Restaurants in Dahab
Cuisines: Seafood, Mediterranean, Egyptian
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Good for: Groups, Child-friendly
Dining options: Lunch, Dinner, After-hours, Reservations, Seating, Waitstaff
Description: Off the main drag in Dahab, but well worth a visit. You select your fish at the ice counter, and pay by weight. Much fresher, and much better value than the seafront restaurants. Rice, fries, vegetables, soup and mezze starter are all thrown in for the cost of the fish, so excellent value. Well worth a visit!

“Rip off , beware , never again ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014 via mobile

This place was recommended , but it seems if your not Egyptian then the sky's the limit on prices , I was given a menu with no prices on , I ordered carefully avoiding lobster of red snapper , the waiters were intrusive and rude , the food no more than average , but the bill ! What a joke , it worked out at @£25 per head , no drinks , very very pricey ,
I spoke to two locals who heard about my food , they both agreed that £10-15 would have been quite a lot .
Don't waste your money !
Never again

“Totally Over-rated”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

Our dive master recommended it, and our guide book recommended it, so we were looking forward to eating at Sea Bride. My how we were disappointed.

The first and most unforgivable offence was the seafood soup. Some of the seafood soups down by the waterside are sublime, but here we were treated to two bowls of water with some stock in it. Awful! I don't know how they could get away with calling it "seafood" soup.

We'd certainly lowered our expectations by the time our main meals came round, and the Sea Bride didn't surprise us with something amazing. The food was over-cooked and tasteless.

Couldn't have been more disappointed.

“Recommended by our dive master this is a real gem about 250 m off the main strip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

Great sea food at half the price you would pay on the main drag . The fish was all excellent with the Calamari being the high point. Pretty basic surroundings and dodgy Egyptian TOTP playing on the TV but the only seafood restaurant where you see the locals eating alongside tourists like us who have been told where to go for the best value.

“Excellent fish, great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

You pick your fish from the counter outside and let them know how much you want. It is weighed and then you are shown inside to a table. A very nice variety of salads, dips and fresh handmade flatbread is brought out to you with your prepared fish.
The meal was lovely and we were shocked at how reasonable the price was including drinks, and the three of us were stuffed.
The restaurant is less decorated than the others but this is how they keep the prices down.
An excellent place for those who love fish and are on a budjet.
