Taba Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Taba

August 5, 2017 Hana Mouser

Taba, situated on the Red Sea's Gulf of Aqaba at the junction of Egypt and Israel, is a stone's throw from a truly impressive range of sites.  Excursions to nearby Castle Zaman provide a rare view of four countries simultaneously, and the Colored Canyon is an obstacle course ripe for exploration.  The Marriott Taba Heights Red Sea Resort awaits tourists following their day trips with its very own therapeutic Salt Cave, ideal for unwinding in luxury.

El Fuego

Reviewed By ThomasfromDamascus - Damascus, Syria

"Officially" this Mexican Restaurant is closed, but the F&B Manager at the Marriott Taba Heights Red Sea Resort opened it just for us!! Marriott operates this great restaurant just outside the resort in the "New Village" Area.
Firstly you must sit outside on the balcony as the view is spectacular!! Service was tops and most importantly was the food...Fresh Mexican Chips to start with three different sauces. Then followed with fresh local fish Ala "Mexican Style". It was to die for!! A nice cold beer (or two) and this night was a total delight!!
Unfortunately the entire area of Taba Heights is suffering, especially the restaurants in the "New Village" as all five (5) hotels are providing an All Inclusive formula and the average occupancy rate is very, very low!! Also, few tourist venture out of their hotels and want to spend a few extra dollars!! What a waste...

Amazing meal, the restaurant adjusted the menu to make sure it suited all our requirements. The service is first class, the waiters cannot do enough to make sure that you have a great dining experience.. We sat on the Terrace with views overlooking Jordan and Saudi Arabia which was magical.

Casa Taba Restaurant

Reviewed By The_Man1965 - San Angelo, Texas

My wife and I had the restaurant to ourselves. The head waiter Yasser provided excellent service. The veal and shrimp were excellent. Not a great wine selection. Prices were comparable to the Unites States, which is rare for Egypt. The service was timed perfectly and the food was well prepared. A definite must while in Taba.

Reviewed By willytaba - Aalst, Belgium

The restaurant " Chez Pascal", it is just fantastic. It is next to the hotel Three Corners El wekala golf resort and just near the entrance from the market place. So it is easy to find when you take the shuttle bus from the other hotels to the market place. You can go shopping before or after tasting the lobster, the steak with peppersauce........The chocolate mousse and many other plates. Thanks to the chief for preparing and to Yousry for the very very good service.
This vacation, my friends and i, did visit it twice, and we always enjoy it.

L'Asiatique

This restaurant is the al a carte restaurant inside the Sofitel Taba Heights and can be used by both residents and non-residents alike.

Reviewed By Ndfeed - Bruges, Belgium

We stayed in our beloved Sofitel for 2 weeks, and decided to pay this restaurant a visit.
Service: super! (Thanks Shabah!)
Food: yum, I had the best sashimi every, very tasty. Then I had the grilled prawns with noodles, and it was very tasty as well, I loved it!
My partner had the chicken satés and beef with noodles and he enjoyed it a lot.
Watching the chef cook was a treat!
Oh and the dessert, I am not a dessert person but this was outstanding: flambeed bananas with coconut ice cream, delicious!!
It's not cheap, especially not when you are enjoying the rest of the hotel in an all inclusive formula, but it was money well worth spent and we will go back again as soon as we get the chance.

Olive Branch Restaurant

Reviewed By ColonelMonty - Glasgow, United Kingdom

This is a new restaurant that has been thoughtfully decorated in a unique style combining antique artifacts and contemporary design! Old arabic doors from Cairo, black and white photographs of old Egypt, vintage travel posters, hand crafted in Arabesque style, Bedouin handicrafts and beautiful ceramic tiles make this place so different to anywhere else in this area and therefore worth a visit. The restaurant serves light snacks and drinks, Mediterranean cusine and arabic and Israelli dishes and the Friday evening BBQ served outside is really splendid. There is a beautiful Majlis area upstairs Outside there is a genuine Bedouin Tent, superb Seating areas and Islamic Fountain and a mountain Terrace. It is a must visit if in the area!
