Really good food and service here, a bit quiet but then it is January :-) Very easy to get to from all of El Gouna, just get a Tuk Tuk ( less than 1 euro per person anywhere in El Gouna) to Downtown bus station, 100 meters up the road

Very reasonably priced for excellent food and attentive service. The five course meal was less than £45

This is definitely a restaurant to visit and the experience is plush, opulent and worth it. You can tell that they are all about the experience from before you walk in, yet the menu is simple, realistically priced and food excellent, both quality and taste. A very nice "last night on holiday" restaurant choice.

I was recommended to visit this restaurant before visiting El Gouna and it certainly didn't disappoint. It is worth noting that Upstairs definitely has a more formal feel than any other restaurant in the area but then again, the service is first class. I started with the Light Shrimp salad - a fabulous dish consisting of smoked salmon topped with... More

Living in Hurghada it is a bit of a slog to head to El Gouna for dinner, but this is one of the restaurants that makes it worthwhile. Interesting flavour combinations of quality ingredients are beautifully cooked and presented. Add to this some of the best service you'll find in the area (a restaurant where the no-one's plates are taken... More

Wasn't sure about the restaurant as it was very quiet, but shouldn't have worried - this became our favourite restaurant in El Gouna!!! Had various dishes, but the surf n turf was beautiful (what a steak that was) as was the roasted camel with Thai curry - random, but amazing. Also had desserts which were exceptional, and drinks were very... More

We liked the location, it was clean, nicely decorated, but for a nice dinner you find better Restaurants in El Gouna, for example - ZIA AMELIA - MARITIME - PEER 88 - LE GARAGE gourmet burger and many more!

Visited this venue with my family when we were on vacation in Hurghada to celebrate my wife's birthday. It took a few days for the reservation to get confirmed, but it was pretty clear. The staff was friendly and attentive, bonus points for the tall fellow who had taken pains to learn Swedish from Google Translate! We had the taster... More

The restaurant is spotless, including the bathrooms, and decorated in period French style mixed with Oriental touches. The food is really excellent and different from the one hundred other restaurants in the neighbourhood. The manager Bart is friendly and he and his staff speak several languages. It is a very welcome change of atmosfere after the "real" Egypt feeling.
