Does Not Qualify for "Best French Restaurant".

I was here during shanghai restaurant week and it was named the "Best French Restaurant" which can't be correct. I ordered the smoked salmon, turbot fish roll, and slow cooked red wine pear. The food was just alright - fairly plain. They use a lot of "foam" and the flavours were just too light for... read more

Very very disappointed. Building entrance is horrible, food is not good, ingredients were not so fresh, overcooked and meals arrived cold or not so Warm. Wines were correct but that is all. And i forgot, flowers on the table were dying already with dried leaves! Not a good sign! Freres Pourcel, you would really to take an action, this restaurant... More

Maison Pourcel used to be where MM Bund is today, but they didn't make enough money to be able to keep the address. They have a smaller dining room now in another part of Puxi which can be really nice especially in the evening when you have a view of the sky over your head if you are near the... More

I've never left a comment on any website, but after spending my Christmas Eve Dinner 2014 in the restaurant Table of Maison Pourcel, I felt compelled to warn future customers about this restaurant. In all honesty, this was the worst restaurant experience that I ever had to go through in my entire life. From the booking to the bill, it... More

We had dinner at Maison Pourcel tonight and we are both disappointed. As we were traveling to shanghai for the weekend we decided to book dinner there and the evening did not go as well as we thought. First we waited a very long time before we had our appetizers (30min). We had some nibbles from the kitchen but the... More

We had a big group of lunch. The setting was classic, but you can see the restaurant has worn out and details are not done properly. Using the Michelin name as the group doesn't mean they are good, if anything an embarrassment. Table setting was not done properly, table cloth was not ironed or had holes in it. Service that...

I had lunch over restaurant week with two friends and we really loved the beauty of the food. It was tasty although expect small portion sizes. It is a bit pricey but the view was good and the food quality was high.

I'd heard about this place since it opened a few years ago but for some reason never got to try it out...even though we eat say 3 to 5 times per week. I guess I had quite high expectations and I don't mind high prices at all...providing there is price-value in the food and the service and interaction nice. Parking... More

Had a lovely afternoon in the kitchen with the head chef and our small group of 5 people. The chef cooked a 3 course dinner and explained every step in the process (we didn't cook it out self but rather observed the chef and his skills). Thereafter we where invited up to the restaurant and eat the 3course dinner that... More
