This was our 3rd time in El Gouna and we had been on our previous visits to eat at Upstairs. The staff remembered us from last time and we got a genuinely warm welcome. Although the menu hasn't changed since last time, the quality and value of the food is still really good. In particular I recommend trying their signature... More

Lovely menu with pretty good local wine (don't expect it to be top shelf french stuff but it is pretty nice). The biggest treat was the staff who had the same expectations of what they you're supposed to do as a waiter at a fancy restaurant (i.e. top up the wine without bugging the customer) but actually get how it...

While staying in El Gouna We visited this very 'English' style reataurant and found it to be the best in Downtown El Gouna. Not upstairs at all but a very smart eatory which would almost be 4 rosettes if it were in the Uk and very reasonably priced. Far from what was on offer in other local restaurants, great starters...

This is by far the best food in Gouna! Me and my husband are into nice places and restaurants and we compare to top notch. This is a must go!

Having eaten there last year we felt that the food had gone down slightly in quality and in presenation. The restaurant is very nice - with out door space and really chic boho internal seating also. The food is plentiful and well cooked but the quality of the duck had diminished and they went a tad overboard with the garnishes... More

This is a very smart restaurant, complete with crystal glasses and linen napkins. The service is excellent, and the waiters charming and attentive. The food is of a very high standard both in quality and presentation.

We've just finished a fantastic dinner for two at this wonderfully intimate fine dining restaurant. Starting with quail on toast, and grilled halloumi we moved onto some beautiful main courses: Lynne had duck served with a cinnamon polenta while I tried the camel steaks served with a coconut curry sauce. Excellent well cooked food served by friendly and appropriately attired... More

This is by far the best food quality we ate in Gouna. The place is ultra chic and so is the food presentation. The taste is very well prepared. This is a real chef cooking not an amateur. Price is very reasonable for the quantity and the quality. Don't miss it.

We visited Upstairs Restaurant during our visit in May, and it was by far our favourite meal! From the outside it doesn't look too inviting, but once you're inside the setting is wonderful. The waiter was lovely and was very attentive. My boyfriend tried Camel for the first time and I even had to try it, it looked so lovely!... More

If you are there, you shouldnt miss this tastes, dined here for a special occasion and was not disappointed. The restaurant is small and intimate and we were treated with excellent service. The food was superb and it is nice that you can talk to the chef about his menu.
