This is an amazing Bar and Restaurant. The Bar is located on the 39th floor with amazing views of both the Bund and Pudong from the outdoor terrace. I can't think of a place in Shanghai where you can actually have such a great view of both places at the same time. The bar has a great drink list... read more

An amazing view, no doubt about it. But the meals really weren't impressive enough to justify a repeat visit after the first, which was to enjoy the view and suss out the restaurant. Costly, but good food. Great service and ambience to the place. Go once, I say.

Started with a glass of Manhattan on the rooftop bar, watching at the skyline and sunset which is so breathtaking. Went down for dinner, we got a table by the window side. The king prawns were made by a perfect cocktail sauce, got shared a meat board which I found the foie gras mousse was very good too. I did... More

The grill orders were excellent. Good crowd, music. The terrace overlooks the museum tower and the tallest building in Shanghai

I and my girl friend had her birthday dinner here on Saturday evening. Having started with one soup of each and tomato caprese salad, then the wagyu steak they recommended, 1 filet mignon and 1 sirloin, finished by a cute cheese cake as a birthday present, everything was amazing. We were offered to choose the steak knives which neither I... More

Came here by on a Saturday evening myself after a long sightseeing stroll through Shanghai. After one week of Chinese food with our business partners I was looking forward to the odd beef steak :-) First the location is astonishing, I had a small table at the window oberlooking the river and the Pudong skyline. Service was fantastic, maybe a... More

A clear wine card and more than satisfying food experience. But prepare your... More

It's not a secret that we came for business dinner not only coz the spectacular view, but also the best steak and personal service. We always book ahead at least 5 days to ensure a table near the window side, it's a MUST for the people we brought. Then the thing makes us coming back time by time, is the... More

Reserved a table for two person on a Saturday evening. Nice welcoming. The food and service is superb!! We had a Lobster bisque soup as a starter and a Tajima Wagyu beef (cooked to perfection!!!) topped with a piece of foie gras served with black pepper sauce. We had also a portion steak chips each and that is too much,... More
