Description: If you are looking for authentic French food in Shanghai seek no more! Le Saleya is just the place you want to be.Visiting Le Saleya is like being beamed up to the South of France in a family style establishment where owners get their hands dirty; where waiters run everywhere shouting out your order loudly, where the wine flows to pair traditional French dishes and ravish your palate; and where the kitchen door is widely opened, just because there is nothing to hide. Quite the opposite indeed. Proud of our sourcing and savoir-faire we love to share our methods, our kitchen stories, and our passion with our guests. There’s even a tiny special guests and friends’ kitchen table for the purists and the foodies that want to find out what being first in line during a “coups-de-feu” feels like.In January 2014, Le Saleya unveiled the next chapter in the restaurant’s history: a significant redesign, the extension of our terrace and a brand new menu designed by our Chef Philippe Charon. French style Suckling Pig, Pan-fried Goose Liver, Croustillant de Joue de Boeuf just to cite a few of our signature dishes that are to be washed down with a Pouilly Fuissé, a Bordeaux or a Côtes du Rhône, the epicurean way…Le Saleya is all about generosity, conviviality, memories, and a shared pleasure around the table. It shows a certain lifestyle and French tradition so rare to find in China.

We went there with some friends a first time and everything went well. Then when we returned the chef had changed and he was terrible. Add also the fact there was only one other table when we were here, although it was Thursday evening. Very honestly, I am not that picky in terms of restaurants but this was like the... More

Was there twice, as the owner gets the meat from his own butcher shop, it's frech and no risk to eat it french style rear. Enjoyed but it's not really cheap, count around 300 to 400 RmB per person for starter, main dish, dessert + Beer, more if you take wine

There's something about French restaurants... you either like them or hate them. In part because the personality of the management team or proprietor is a fundamental for a French establishment. And patrons can never be indifferent, in good, or bad. Expect to be gently bullied if you're not yet "part of the French connexion", but pass that, mock back and... More

Popped in with a friend for a light early evening bite - great friendly staff who explained the menu.......limited range of wines by the glass but what was offered was good.......blackboard menu.....great snails and simple but tasty cod and mashed potatoes in olive oil. Casual, friendly and good value.

I was there for lunch with a colleague. Fortunately we arrived quite early and were able to seat on the terrace as later on it got packed. Service was not warm and really basic although most of the waiters are foreigners. There were not enough lunch set menu papers to go around for all the tables so a waiter had... More

What a nice surprise, a corner of Provence right in Shanghai. Delicious food, great friendly service and a lovely terrace that reminds you of France if you have been there and if not that what it looks like. Worth eating there, a small menu card at lunch time, all extremely good.

Invited by a friend for a quick bite after work it was warm enough to sit outside without the patio heaters on. We had some bubbles to start, followed by a further 3 bottles of a decent, good value French red. Sharing the deli platter of Spanish meats and their marinated peppers, the 4 of us went on to order... More
