In 12.5 years of time in Beijing, Morel's has the distinction of being a place where despite untold number of visits I have never had a disappointing meal. Their steaks are always cooked to perfection as ordered and their bucket of mussels in Beijing is legendary. There may be places with fancier decor, or presentation, but I'm hard-pressed to name...

Used to be one of the best places in Beijing to get a steak - now its has been one disappointment after another. I'm not sure if it is the beef itself, or if stays frozen for too long, but the steaks recently have left a poor taste in my mouth. 8 years ago they used to be the only... More

Had the 98¥ 3 course lunch. Also included 1 glass of house wine, draft beer, or soft drink. To finish, coffee or tea. This represents very good value in my opinion. The food was a bit of a throw back in time as is the decor. I started with ham stuffed with Russian salad that was plated with an abundance... More

Please avoid to go in morel. Even the service... More

Our family went to Morel's on our last day in Beijing, having had excellent Chinese food, but (as we live in China), wanting to try something foreign, but different. We didn't have high expectations--we just wanted some novelty--but we were all very impressed with the quality and service. The salads in particular were excellent, (and I'm picky about salads); the... More

Morel's around for so many years and still has the best Mussles in town, also the crevettes are worth a trip to the small but nice restaurant.

I thought entering a country side restaurant in Belgium a couple of decades ago when coming to Morel. Must say, the food is good. We had steak tartare, mussels, black pudding, etc and all delivered. Food is surprisingly authentic and service is ok.

While it may not be as good as it used to be I still love Morel's. Comfortable atmosphere and always good quality food make it a must every time I'm in Beijing. Pot of mussels and a bottle (or 2) of Rochefort and I'm a very happy traveler. Thanks!

Visited with some old Chinese friends and had a very good meal at a reasonable price. We started with mussels and fries followed by an excellent steak perfectly cooked washed with a good red house wine. This was followed by Belgium waffles and fruit could not fault a thing
