I can say without hesitation that this is the worst French restaurant I have been in in my whole life. I am a seasoned traveler and have eaten in many bad places but this restaurant is up there with the worst. Every single dish served to all of us was absolutely horrendous. The staff spoke very little English which does... More

Everything was posh and the servers could speak English. Food was a-ok. The lobster bisque and beef tenderloin that I had, was just right and tasted heavenly. Price? Definitely not worth the amount they have charged but considering the location, it was pretty justified. There are better places out there, but with the view and food, this place does the... More

What a brilliant view of Guangzhou's Pearl River in this 360 revolving restaurant! Chef Philippe is really friendly and keen to please its clientele. The french food served is excellent and the service is good. It was a special occasion as we celebrated my wife birthday... In my opinion, effort should be put into changing some of the furniture and... More

An amazing view from the dinning revolving room ... And the French Chef is there to make you spend a memorable moment. French cuisine with very original dishes, always very well presented and explained by the Chef. Wines are not cheap but the selection is good! Don't miss this opportunity when travelling to Guangzhou!
