Three years since our last trip to El Gouna and the Upstairs restaurant, it was reassuring to discover standards were still high. Relaxing ambience, polite and attentive staff, but most of all extremely tasty and well cooked food. Hopefully it won't be 3 years until we return!!!!! But when we do we... read more

Three years since our last trip to El Gouna and the Upstairs restaurant, it was reassuring to discover standards were still high. Relaxing ambience, polite and attentive staff, but most of all extremely tasty and well cooked food. Hopefully it won't be 3 years until we return!!!!! But when we do we will definitely be eating at this wonderful restaurant.

had a reasonable meal of lamb chops. Only problem was the wine was 'corked' The waiter was a very pleasant man who offer to serve our drinks outside but it was too hot We really enjoyed our starters but found the garlic almost too strong. Loved the fresh bread

Whilst visiting Down Town El Gouna we spotted Upstairs. it looks from the outside a lovely french restaurant and you won't be disappointed when you sit down. One of the best waiters we have ever had serve us. Great food well worth trying for that special treat when on holiday with that special someone.

Upstairs. Another one of El Gouna’s hidden culinary gems. The outside appearance of the restaurant makes it one you might walk by a few times before you stop to consider checking it out, which is exactly what I did. Usually, you can tell whether or not you can take a restaurant seriously by the size and quality of its menu.... More

The menu is not extensive but what there is, without doubt, is delicious. The service here is amazing. Could not find better. The ambience is wonderful too. I had a "light shrimp salad" to start. This consisted of shrimps, advocado, smoked salmon and caviar. Amazing. Fillet for main which was cooked to perfection and tasted wonderful. Four of us ate... More
