Very good view of the Skyline

I always bring my visitors to this place when they get to Shanghai because of the view from the rooftop sky bar. Perfect location on the Bund for having a cocktail while gazing at the amazing Shanghai skyline!

Always my first choice for business dinner,the view across the Huangpu river is amazing! The steak is in high quality and price is reasonable! Suggest to go upstair for after drink at the rooftop bar which provide with nice cocktail.

After wait quite a while to dine here I had high expectations. Carefully located above Rolex for brand association and in a building with a commanding view of the bund the real estate opportunity for this venue is high. Unfortunately it is let down through very bad interior design and very bad service. On arrival we entered through the side... More

I love this restaurant for many reasons. First, the meal was delicious and the view was breathtaking. You can reserve a table overlooking the Bund and enjoy a view of the night that is awe inspiring. I had the Filet and it was one of the best I have ever had. This is fine dining at its best.

A very good place to take a drink and enjoying the view of financial centre of china. It is as classy as the name suggests. An expensive place for china, but worthwhile.

The restaurant has a slightly lonely feel to it. You are left wanting by the atmosphere and also by the food. You can tell that the staff are trying their best but they seem to lack both training and experience (starter cutlery was placed on the inside instead of the outside, for example) really to deliver a fine dining experience....

Sadly the night was rainy, cloudy and cold ( but beautiful foreigner manager brings the blankets for us and hot water ), and didn't have many people there.

Staying in The Bund

Neighborhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
