What is the best type of lighting over a kitchen table?

Uplight or downlight, that is the question. We're about to change out our old fluorescent fixtures in the kitchen and replace them with some mini pendants over the island and can lights around the perimeter. Now I'm realizing there will be no lights reflecting off the ceiling and adding that type of glow to the room. Will our table be adequately lit if we choose to put an up-facing fixture in that spot?
