Great food, great service, relaxing. I had a delicious fresh fish today, very tasty, much better than in the other restaurant of the promenade and their thickshakes are to die for. Get a mango one or a chocolate/coconut one on their terrace, litterally on the Beach: big time!

Very relaxed atmosphere and great friendly service. I had vegetable tagine with dates and it was fantastic. One of the best meals I had on the holiday. Relaxed floor-seating by the sea. Really enjoyed it!

We stopped at this restaurant for early lunch at 11:45. Other restaurant was not ready for lunch yet. So, we didn't expect much other than to fill our hungry stomach due too poor breakfast in the hotel. Surprisingly the food is very tasty, delicious with very tender meat and served in large portion.

No hassle as I was passing by, given time to look at the menu which is simple. Various tajines veggie, fish, chicken, lamb or beef and a BBQ section. I ask what was good and the beef and date tajine certainly was.

I found this place by casualty and I was very impressed by the quality! The service is so nice and the food so tasty. Dahab is an expensive place and we have short budget, but we were lucky to find Same same but Different. And you have WiFi and very nice view!!

Decided to try this place for Iftar because I read such great reviews about their vegetarian dishes, I ordered a veggie tagine. Since it was for Iftar they brought milk with dates, orange juice, and a bottle of water before my meal. It was all tasty, especially the milk. Once the food came I was almost full but ate it...

This restaurant was more chilled and relaxed sitting on cushions around a fire. The food was good at a reasonable price.

There is a lovely deck from which you can see the curve of the bay, peaceful atmosphere listening to the waves and gentle music. Food was great and the service was really friendly. Would definitely go again, love their mango thick shakes.
