Cosy in Winter, Great in Spring. Good food and great service.

Decor and location both perfect but the food was disappointing to say the least. We went for brunch and the menu provides an interesting mix of breakfast and lunch and evening meal options. The fish and chips was bland,the mushroom tart was more the size of a starter with a salad which contained mainly parsley with no dressing and the... More

This restaurant is part of the "M" group - owned by Michelle who started in Shanghai with "M on the Bund" which based on quality and value fast became an icon place to eat. Our lunch was a business affair and needed to be quick and with quality food. High standard on both counts. The two or three course fixed... More

Beautiful location. Wonderful decor. Subprime service. Good food. Not more than good. It misses a bit to be perfect. We expected it to be unique and it was only good. Prices are posted on the web so no surprises. It is quite expensive. The experience as a whole was positive.

Looking over Qianmen and Tiananmen Square in Beijing this top-notch restaurant offers both excellent food and service. Of course not a budget option but if you are in for a treat or lovely date this is the place to be. (Especially compared to the much more expensive offerings of famous Hotel Branches) I am always more than happy with the... More

I went with 4 friend to experience their Brunch on a sunday which was very busy and clearly popular. What was most enjoyable was the service and the views are amazing over the Tiananmen Square. I had some smoked salmon which was a tiny portion but nevertheless tasty. My main course was the mixed grill which was a good portion... More

Stunning setting, the lights of key sights twinkle in the background in this arty, designerish restaurant. Menu takes some reading and whets the appetite and the food is exquisitely presented and equally delicious. Service is attentive and friendly. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable experience and highly recommended.

I had dinner here with my wife in January and checked it out as it was ranked one of the top spots according to CNN. The location was nice and views at night were spectacular. I can imagine the summers outside having drinks overlooking the square must be nice. The food was okay at best but the wine was on... More

We tried this place because it was highly recommended and close to our hotel. The food was very good. We ordered the tasting menu with paired wine. Found a new chardonnay that we love! Service was outstanding (despite what some other reviews said).
