Not much to say than: It is a must! After some days you hardly find much variety in dahabs restaurants. But Baba Ali (not Ali Baba, which is a restaurant at the seaside) will surprise you with dishes you probably won't get anywhere else. This guy is just awesome and makes you feel like dining at his home. I hope... More

For the last three or four visits to Dahab .. Passing by Baba Ali has been a must. I love his passion about what he is doing and the way he treats his guests and I would kill to know the recipe of his welcome drink ! If you are expecting a fancy four course meal don't go there ..... More

Baba Ali is a hidden gem. Fresh, home cooked food. Based on what is available at the market that day. Pre-book a few hours before but let Baba Ali cook for you as you have a lovely mixed selection at an amazing price. Plus welcome drink and water included. We had a mixed meze platter to start followed by rosemary... More
