We called into Upstairs last night. We have been visiting it for the last seven years and always found it to be excellent. We had heard it was under new management and were a bit apprehensive as to how the food would be. We needn't have worried, the food was excellent. Lovely friendly waiters and a delightful French chef who... More

They hired a French chef since beginning december 2016 to consult on the menu. His presents has risen this restaurant to a whole different level. Excellent, traditional French cuisine. Prices are higher than other restaurants in El Gouna but still reasonable. Next step is investing in a good wine menu.

The food was good but the prices were quite expensive compared to the other restaurants next door with no reason

Visited Up stairs last night as our traditional winter escape/husband's Birthday treat. And what a disaster it was! Starters we ordered was mixed up. Avocado and ONE CHOPPED PRAWN salad with over salted mayo/ketchup sauce.... "Up stairs" starter- weird prawn/ curry sauce combination. Main meals ( filet steak and duck) served with yesterday's fried up luke warm potatoes and veg(... More

Walking around in El Gouna Downtown we had a look at random restaurants and just thought we would like to try this one. And it was really good! We were the only guests and just couldn't understand why! We ordered the beef filet and the slow roasted duck and both dishes were amazing. We had a delicious panna cotta with... More

In the past, we've had some great meals here. Sadly not this visit. I get the impression that it's under new ownership but I could be wrong. The food can best be described as mediocre, the music too loud and the atmosphere non existent. I doubt we'll be back.

We previously ate in this restaurant several times in the past 2 years. Once with friends for my husbands 50th Birthday, and another time with family for New Years Eve. Having just visited El Gouna, we made a beeline for Upstairs to find it has had a makeover and looked very bland and EMPTY. Unfortunately, there was nothing to tempt... More
