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.

My wife choose this restaurant based on other reviews and the pictures, personally I do not understand the fuss. Good by Egyptian standards but I found it to be a little pretentious and the food not that great. I had beef medallions with mushroom sauce, although the steak was nice, the sauce was very bland. The desert did make up... More
