Perfect place for a nice dinner or some drinks. The daily special is often very hearty, inexpensive and tasty. Very nice and service minded staff. Most of the staff speaks and understand english quite well. Been there +10 times over the years and have never been dissapointed. I will most likely go back there again.

I went to their new location after quite some time. My wife and I just ordered food and no beer or wine. She ordered a Cordon Bleu Schnitzel, which was more of a joke. It is square shaped and thick as two layers of toast bread. The meat inside is about 1 cm thick. So no pounding there... My Berner... More

I spent a lovely couple of hours at Abbey Road having drinks and appetizers. The wine was great, and with happy hour prices very affordable. I had the sliders and they were very good. The atmosphere and the service were outstanding. The patio is divine, but can be a bit chilly during the winter! You will love this place!

I been here a few times and it seems fairly good. I am always amazed at a few things: the fluent English that the waiting staff speak, the size of the place cos it looks small from the outside and the fact it serves Warsteiner on draught. That alone makes it worth going to. They even serve it in branded... More

It is not only the natural friendly staff which attracts us frequently. But as well the happy hour ,where you pay as less as 25 RMB for nice red wine, white wine and beer. Every week day from Monday to Friday they got a special offer for dinner for just 55 RMB. Western food in good quality, from Burger to... More

Visited Saturday evening when the Aus/NZ Rugby was on and the first game of the EPL at the same time. The Filipina Manager/Supervisor, he juggled the different needs of patrons really well/efficiently and ensured both Rugby and Football fans saw/heard what they wanted.

While looking for a sports bar to watch the All Blacks vs Wallabies match, we accidentally stumbled across Abbey Road and decided to stay. I can honestly say it was the best decision. You get to watch your sport in a nice relaxing atmosphere and enjoy drinks, good food, & wonderful service. I highly recommend it ☺👍

If you are desperately looking for Western food and do not want to spend much money, go to Abbey Road. The outside terrace is nice and covered in case of rain. The menu has an excellent choice of Swiss (yes, Swiss) dishes. I especially like the roesties.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighborhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
