Nice restaurant in a park

Very nice location unusual for Shanghai. The restaurant is located in a pArk; inside the reataurant is really cool. The food is good but There is not a big choise. After the dinner it is possible to have. Drink in the lounge bar upstairs. It Was very funny.

Excited to discover this gem so close to my hotel, hidden away in People's Square. We visited last week and thoroughly enjoyed the Tapas: we had 6 different dishes, a mix of hot and cold and they were all very good. We had planned a meal but were pleased with our selection. Great interior decoration and planning a daytime lunch... More
