Location and contact

Located in the heart of Bahrain, a terrific buzz hits you as you enter Upstairs Downstairs and make your way through the bar to the utterly charming two-floor restaurant. Decorated in traditional English Country House style, it’s like being at a private dinner party hosted by a friend and the ambiance is heightened further by local jazz musicians performing on stage. The international guest stars regularly take the stage.The menu is eye-catching international fajitas, fish cakes, interesting-sounding salads and such, all feature, with vegetarians well catered for. So come on over and experience something different today.

Last week I was fortunate to be invited to a Brunch at Upstairs Downstairs. Not your usual brunch concept, but a version where the menu choice is restricted to a section off the menu rather than the usual buffet concept. Initially, I was concerned by...More

We visited with our children on a Friday morning after coming over the causeway from Saudi. Great to have a real beer and real pork for breakfast! The fosters on tap is very well priced by Bahrain standards.

Nice colonial style airy restaurant makes you feel your dining in a stately home. The breakfast and brunch are good value. and the full English is a passable representation f what you might get at home, real pork bacon and sausage.

Went to brunch here last weekend. Food not good, and extremely limited options. Manager rude and seriously lacking customer service skills. There are too many options in Bahrain for me to ever have to visit this establishment again.

What a cute place! The service was so kind, the food was delicious and they were able to accommodate our very large party with no problems at all! There was even a singer that came on after dinner which was so nice. Enjoy!

You might think this is an English restaurant but they serve Bahraini food! It's good for dinners, quite upscale with live music. It's a tad pricy though.
