I visited The Upstairs Restaurant three years ago and looked forward to visiting again. The last time I was mostly pleased with the service and the food, apart from a small hitch with dessert. Unfortunately this time I was sadly disappointed The service was still excellent, and the surroundings just as pleasing. The food this time was quite below standard.... More

5th visit over last few years and is always on our list of places to eat. Food is great and varied, service always excellent and reasonable value Best to eat outside if weather allows, as inside a little lifeless.

We have just returned from a two week stay in El Gouna & always make a point of eating here.. The food is excellent (think fine dining) beautifully cooked and impeccably served . A gem of a restaurant, quiet and more refined than most. If you want a special meal with excellent service and fantastic food and wine then give... More

The ambience is great - you can sit indoors or outside depending on the weather and there is limited yet very varied menu! The service is professional, and swift! The food quality is really good with great starters (Halloumi cheese and King prawn) and the Camel is great! You also get a taster at the start of dinner and a... More

Normal normal - The prawns and pasta can be somewhat salty. In fact my friend found it so salty that she decided to return the plate for re-cooking... More

Are here during our stay last year and returned this year. Very nice place with some interesting food. Out if the ordinary for El Gouna. Quiet and more refined than most. Good quality food presented in a stylish fashion. Think Master Chef. If you want something a bit different definitely worth a visit.

Food is always excellent and we have a favourite table but you may need to book during the busy season. It is more akin to fine dining (Egypt style) but we went 3 times in 2 weeks.

3 course meal was superb. The little nibbles in-between are a lovely free extra too. The service is excellent and it matches the food. The outside dining area wasn't set up as fully as the inside area but the waiter quickly made up our table. Patio heaters are there but not needed now. Considering the quality of the food, the...

Nice interior and great service. The food was good, but didn't reach the fine dining level you should expect ( maybe due to low season).
