Described as one of Beijing's most iconic locations with stunning views of the Forbidden City,the venue has long captivated to emotions of its guests. Located in a building alongside the former Imperial palace's eastern moat, the place has been transformed to create a two-storey experience that is unmistakably Beijing. While the menu has French cuisine in its DNA, the Modern European approach with inventive and harmonious adaptations to local ingredients is what we aim to deliver and hope to be remembered for Lunch and Dinner served from Monday till Sunday, with Brunch on week-end.

I am afraid I don’t know that as we just had lunch. It could quite happily have been a menu that would have satisfied my dinner requirements as well. It is a very sophisticated professional outfit.
