Description: Mr & Mrs Bund – Modern Eatery by Paul Pairet. A modern French eatery. Relaxed chic atmosphere, heritage Bund location.Mr & Mrs Bund is French, in the manner of Chef Paul Pairet: born, traveled, and globally stamped. Contemporary, but not stuffy. Relaxed, without sacrificing an ounce of chic. We serve populist French favorites, through Pairet's looking glass. Service is family-style, recast for a modern table, and the wine list includes 32 wines by the glass. We riff on classics, we dish up comfort cuisine, and we serve it just like you would Sunday night dinner – sharing-style, and with plenty for seconds. It's a straightforward menu that takes simple French classics to start, and then let you add and play. Mash-ups: not just for potatoes and DJs anymore. Hours: Dinner: 5:30pm to 10:30pm (Monday to Sunday); Late Night Supper: 11:00pm to 2:00am (Thursday to Saturday)Accolades: No.43 in 2013 & No. 76 in 2014 by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants & 51-100 list; No.7 in 2013 & No.11 in 2014 by Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants

Mr & Mrs Bund is a MUST when you visit Shangai.

With a modern decoration and a great atmosphere, the food is amazing. After dinner you an head to the bar located at the roof flor. Great view of the Bund!

Highly recomended!

“Excellent French Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is serious French restaurant I tried outside of Canada. I wish I had more time and budget to enjoy this place. I highly recommend for people who visit Shanghai. I love their spacious room and funky interior and what not. Need to train a bit of staffs English and service level to top.

“A must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Loved everything about this restaurant from the lobby, view, decor, music and of course the food! The restaurant has a very retro feel with couch seating adorned by an occasional colored chair. Or if you're lucky you will get seated at the high stool table. Take some time to explore the restaurant and you will find hidden treasures such as the patio with amazing views of the bund, a huge arcade machine and an interesting abacus-looking decoration. My friends and I decided to order a bunch of dishes and share which worked perfectly given the "lazy suzy" in the center of our table. Don't fill up on the tuna spread and bread, despite their deliciousness! One of my favorite appetizers was the frogs legs. The oysters were great and fresh too! I was also a big fan of the duck. Great thing about the menu is the flexibility, which was perfect given there was two vegetarians among the group. The chef allows you to mix and match dishes (ie, choose the duck but with the sauce from the chicken). At least this is what their website boasts. The waiter didn't seem to agree, or maybe it got lost in translation. Luckily I was with a mandarin-speaking friend who helped sort things out and my vegetarian friends were very happy with their customized meal. If you want a fun night out, check out Mr. & Mrs. Bund. There are a few lounges in the same building if you want the party to continue late!!!
