It is really difficult to find good food and with reasonable price in Dahab. But Baba Ali offers the best food and the most reasonable price in Dahab. This little restaurant is run by a wonderful cheerful chef named Baba Ali. He knows how to greet his customers and he shows a great passion in preparing his wonderful dishes. Diffidently i do recommend Baba Ali for a nice meal and very reasonable price.

The ambiance is nice and the food is pretty good. So are the portions. However, it is a bit more expensive than the rest of Dahab.

One of my favorite restaurants on the planet. Few things are perfect - but this little restaurant with three tables is. Good food, plenty of it and great care about guests, and the special fruit drink you get while food is prepared is magic. A very special atmosphere and decoration and no matter what mood you´re in when you arrive - you will soon feel happy and cared for. The price makes you want to pay the double - and it is still less than in many of the tourist places in central Dahab. Don´t miss it.

Many reviewers here are reviewing the more mainstream "Ali Baba" restaurant (I have also heard great things about this restaurant) BUT it's well worth a 15 minute walk away from the lighthouse towards the local village towards Baba Ali's.

He cooks just what he would cook himself but man, does he have skill in the kitchen. He doesn't even appear to know what an amazing experience he provided us with. It was just my family and Baba Ali in the restaurant at that time, the most intimate dining experience of my life but it was a home-cooked meal of perfection.

The only drawback is the heat. But the cold drinks and salads Baba Ali brought us (without adding them to the bill) more than made up for this. In total 3 of our meals came to 120LE (about £10 GBP!).

I had Bedouin chicken pizza. It's the way all pizza should be served. Not too cheesy, lots of vegetables and generous amount of chicken. I am definitely going back!

Very welcoming staff, varied menu, food was very good, both lamb and chicken dishes were very well prepared and presented. Main meal price covers starter and sweet as well. Bring your own wine/beer, great value
