The dinner was nice and atmosphere pleasant. Service was terribly slow. Albeit it was Christmas eve, but then they should have planned ahead and had more staff. For the price you pay, I expected more.

Very good service and great starters, tried the camel curry for the first time and its was very good not hot but v well spiced. Not a curry like you get in the UK (but then again you dont get UK type curries in India!) truly give it a go

What a disappointment to find that a restaurant with a fine reputation serves lobster soup out of a can. We asked the waitress if the soup was homemade, which she confirmed. I've tasted home made lobster soup on several occasions in the north atlantic - this soup was straight out of a can

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant two times when we were in El Gouna in March. We went here because of the rating on TripAdvisor, and were not disappointed. The food was perfect - very good flavors, and good prices as well. The first day I had the duck, and my boyfriend had the lamb. The next day we... More

Came here by sheer luck, what a result. The setting is nice, very clean with pure white table cloths, nicely decorated tables. The food is a complete suprise, something you would expect from a top restaurant in London. We had the chicken parfait and mushroom soup for starters, the fillet for main and cheesecake for desert. We also had a... More

We ate at Upstairs upon the recommendation of someone we met in out hotel. The food was indeed fine dining and not at UK fine dining prices. I have the medallions which were perfectly prepared miniature fillet steaks and my husband had the duck. The amuse buche and the sorbet were delightful extras. With a starter and a glass of... More

Despite the name this restaurant is downstairs. What a nice place though. Great service and great food. Probably the best food in the area. Excellent value for money too.
