The Art of Cooking

Winner of over 25 awards since it was founded in 1977, Upstairs Downstairs Restaurant continues to be the beating heart of Manama’s fine dining scene, the first restaurant to create a fusion of exquisite food blended with a great atmosphere. Upstairs Downstairs has been a favourite because of our passion for great food, and an urge to create the best dining experience. With our central location in the heart of Adliya’s block 338 entertainment scene, and an unconditional love for great food we continue to be the name in fine-dining around the island.
