Really good food well presented. The staff were good but a bit overly serious, I find that a lot in slightly upscale places. Lovely environment. I had salmon and she had home made tortellini (which, although good, had pretty darn thick pasta....it was cooked, but it was very very thick and a lot of it compared to the filling). Plenty...

The restaurant is located in the hotel “The opposite House” in Sun Li Tun. They have an own underground parking place. The interior is decorated in an expensive modern style.

This is an excellent Italian restaurant, good atmosphere on a Saturday evening, attentive and friendly service and some wonderful food. However with the average bottle of wine 400 - 500 RMB , plus the 15% service charge it's easy to spend 600 - 700RMB per person for a meal with wine.

Description
Sureño is the Mediterranean restaurant located on the lower ground level of The Opposite House—an intriguing urban hotel in the cosmopolitan district of Sanlitun. The warm interiors boast an open kitchen and a wood fired oven that evoke the casual style of the Mediterranean, where guests can also watch the live action while they dine. The menus draw on the freshest ingredients of Southern Europe and are updated quarterly at the turn of seasons.Through the à la carte and tasting menus, the restaurant focuses on seafood, hand made pastas, salads, and tapas, as well as choice cuts of imported meat prepared in the wood fired oven. The style is rustic and typical of the dishes one would expect in Spain, Greece, Southern France and Italy, with an inspiring wine selection for wine pairings.
