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

Mr Willis is always a nice place to go...lunch or dinner! No matter whether it is full or moderately full (and it's always generally busy due to its popularity), I think you will always be assured that the service will be sleek and friendly and the food always yummy! I've been coming here more or less since the place first... More

Loved this restaurant and I will be back. The atmosphere was very welcoming, great music (the kind you don't notice), friendly and helpful staff. The booths are very comfortable. The food is excellent! We had the goat cheese souflee, a simple salad and the duck. It was plenty of food for two people. I will definitely be back.

A local friend recommended to go for brunch to Mr. Willis and on a rainy and cold Shanghai Sunday afternoon it was a really good idea. The wooden decor made us feel warm and the atmosphere had a cozy feeling with a very international array of customers. Ordering though, was not easy, because options were a bit limited and close...

It's been a year since we've been to Mr Willis, having been tempted by the incredible choice of restaurants in Shanghai. I am so glad we did. A reminder that quality produce, cooked simply, sensational service, great wine list and a relaxed but sophisticated ambiance, is really all you need. It's not often in Restaurants in this city, that all... More
