Baba Ali is part of the Dahab traditions, and something every Dahab visitor will hear about. Babi Ali is a must visit restaurant in Dahab. Great food, great host with good food, and a beautiful seating.

One of the most beautiful nights that can be spent in dahab, great food, deserts and beverages, cuisines from all around the world , and the most special thing is the family spirit in the place and the exotic treatment from baba ali himself.
