Sureño is the Mediterranean restaurant located on the lower ground level of The Opposite House—an intriguing urban hotel in the cosmopolitan district of Sanlitun. The warm interiors boast an open kitchen and a wood fired oven that evoke the casual style of the Mediterranean, where guests can also watch the live action while they dine. The menus draw on the freshest ingredients of Southern Europe and are updated quarterly at the turn of seasons.Through the à la carte and tasting menus, the restaurant focuses on seafood, hand made pastas, salads, and tapas, as well as choice cuts of imported meat prepared in the wood fired oven. The style is rustic and typical of the dishes one would expect in Spain, Greece, Southern France and Italy, with an inspiring wine selection for wine pairings.

Great set meal for lunch

We came here several times over the last few years for the set lunch meal and were never disappointed. I like the fact that there is always meat, fish and a vegetarian option on the menu. At RMB 138 the 4-course-meal is good value. The waiters are very professional and attentive. The food has... read more

As usual just entering here I felt at home. You want to know why? Stay well and be good it's a personal attitude. I met the chef of Sureno at the ATM and the next day I went to visit his restaurant. What a big mistake! Kidding...Haha. I'm impressed by the love with which he prepares and serves food at... More

Sureno has never disappointed me and I say that with confidence as I've been a frequent guest for the past 2+ years. It's not an inexpensive meal, but the service and quality of the food are absolutely worth the price. In comparison to similar-type foreign restaurants in Beijing, I actually think Sureno falls on the more affordable side given what... More

A local friend recommended this restaurant to us due it's nice atmosphere. We as tourists were dressed quite casually and perhaps this was the reason for our less than stellar treatment. We were seated probably in the worst seats in the house...right by the entrance. We sat for a while waiting to be greeted and brought menus. We were just... More

We unfortunately were very let down by a recent meal at Sureno. After hearing mixed reviews from friends, we finally decided to give it a try. The first slight disappointment was in their sunken garden-- it was such a good day, air quality-wise, that we very much wanted to sit outside, but found that the "garden" was mostly just four...

Located in the basement of a trendy hotel in Beijing, Sureno is an excellent place to get contemporary Italian Cuisine. After four days of solely Asian Cuisine, we welcomed a great pizza and salad!
