Service - terrible - slow and few unattentive staff Food - presentation was non-existent Taste - The french would be ashamed. Canned sauce, cold snails, over cooked lemon tart, rubber chicken. I do not see how this restaurant gets good reviews unless it is for the decor. Save your money and if you are that desparate for 'western' food I... More

We arrived at 7 p.m. on a Sunday evening, walking along Jiangxi Lu and seeing how the street became smaller and darker from the high number blocks down. Through the window the restaurant had few tables occupied. However, things went up. The menu, available on the internet, is short. First courses are priced around 80 RMB, mains 100 - 200.... More

I followed the reviews and decided to give it a try. Our dinner for two turned out to be just an average, nothing really good or special.

My memory is a little hazy of the evening due to the amount of espresso martini's that I consumed (a must have by the way)... More

The restaurant offers a nice stylish interior and is definitely a good escape from the busy Shanghai city, be it with a cuppa or a nice warm pumpkin soup which I personally like. They've also got a beautiful bar to hang out for after-work drinks. The lounge upstairs makes it another nice lil quiet corner to wine down with a... More
