We ate here a few times whilst in el gouna. Probably my favourite restaurant here. A nice selection on the menu and the filet mignon is beautiful. One of the more expensive restaurants, however still reasonably priced and definitely worth it. The sorbet pallet cleansers are a nice touch. The service is good but nothing to write home about or...

I visited The Upstairs Restaurant three years ago and looked forward to visiting again. The last time I was mostly pleased with the service and the food, apart from a small hitch with dessert. Unfortunately this time I was sadly disappointed The service was still excellent, and the surroundings just as pleasing. The food this time was quite below standard.... More

5th visit over last few years and is always on our list of places to eat. Food is great and varied, service always excellent and reasonable value Best to eat outside if weather allows, as inside a little lifeless.

The ambience is great - you can sit indoors or outside depending on the weather and there is limited yet very varied menu! The service is professional, and swift! The food quality is really good with great starters (Halloumi cheese and King prawn) and the Camel is great! You also get a taster at the start of dinner and a... More

Are here during our stay last year and returned this year. Very nice place with some interesting food. Out if the ordinary for El Gouna. Quiet and more refined than most. Good quality food presented in a stylish fashion. Think Master Chef. If you want something a bit different definitely worth a visit.

Thank Andrewgp1
