Visited here for a birthday meal in the summer. Menu was interesting but due to lack of other punters the restaurant lacked a vibrant atmosphere. A pity this resort is not more popular and lack of direct flights from the UK will not help this situation.

Thank you for your review of our restaurant, we are delighted you enjoyed your meal. As you rightly say without more guests in the resort we often find it difficult to maintain a vibrant atmosphere. We hope that flights will be re instated from the UK and once again the ambiance will return along with more tourists! We look forward... More

You can eat outside or in, both areas are beautifully laid out and enhance the dining experience. Service is... More

I would like to visit the Flying Carpet in Taba Heights again and stay at Sofitel Hotel but this is not easy now that Thomson have ceased their flights into Taba Airport.

We hope you will be able to visit us again soon when we will offer you the usual friendly service, superb food in our little paradise! More
