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.

Great experience at Maison Pourcel for the brunch, good value for the quality, nearly perfect, food and service. The French manager there is very friendly and always had attention to details. I will come back for sure during my next trip to Shanghai!

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

I booked at Maison Pourcel with some a priori, consequence of different negative comments received. It was finally a very positive experience. Nice & warm welcoming, as well as permanent attention. We had a lovely 2 pax table along the window. Food was great with incredible mix of flavours. Quality/price ratio was really good. I would definitely recommend a visit... More

This was my first time here having been in Shanghai for over five years and one regret is that I never tried this restaurant before. It was a great experience and service here was very good - warm without being intrusive. Large French windows on the rooftop terrace provide panoramic views of the Jinxian Lu neighborhood, and let in lots... More
