This is another restaurant that was recommended to me. I must say that the food was superb but maybe on the expensive side. So once a month treat is ok. As usual in China, the service was super quick. Everything was fresh as far as I can see. Fresh fruit juice, fresh seafood and fresh fruits for dessert. The clientele... More

Have a few complaints, I would hope at the price they charge for food that the wait staff would pay more attention to the patrons. I saw a pregnant lady waving her hands at the wait staff only to be ignored again and again. I felt so bad that I helped her wave him down, but when we finally got... More

I looked up good western restaurants to go to for my visit to Shanghai. This place came up and the reviews were very positive. To my disappointment, the selection of food was so limited and not worth the price. RMB78 for a tiny bowl of salad ?!! And the pizza was salty. The decor and ambience was nice but I... More

Mr. Willis is one of our favorite restaurants in Shanghai, and that is not only because we live just around the corner. Though you have to reserve because it is immensely popular, this is the place we choose when we want a relaxing dinner. The chicken liver pate is wonderful, so is the sea bass ceviche. Their signature fried chicken... More

Adding my endorsement to this very nice restaurant. High marks for its delicious food, warm service and lovely ambient. What I like most about this place was the luscious green landscape at the balcony which help creates a sense of sereneness to the whole ambient. A very welcome features that provides a sanctuary like feel for those who need a... More

Dropped in for a casual dinner last night with no reservation. We were quickly seated, easy atmosphere, good service, delicious food and a happy time. The bread that came with the cheese was stale so watch out for that, we didn't complain as by then we were quite full. I wouldn't hesitate to suggest a visit, I am sure it... More

Mr Willis is located on the top floor of a building half way down Anfu Lu. The clientele is is a decent mix of Western and Chinese and the restaurant sees a mainly older crowd. The dining area is welcoming and open with a view over a well-run kitchen. Mr Willis' menu is mainly European in style and as and... More

In our 10 years in Shanghai this is definitely one of the restaurants that we've visited the most times. The food is consistently excellent with our favourites including the scallops with curry lentils, pate, roast chicken and sticky date pudding. The pizzas provided by the pizzeria on the ground floor are also very good - try the prosciutto. Service is... More
