The location has such a delightful atmosphere, just like the place it self. They have a lovely menu, but the lunch offer is a great deal. The price depends on the main dish you choose the one on the picture costed 68 RMB. Besides the main dish you get a soup, salad, bread, a dessert and a cup of coffee... More

We went there during the day to have lunch, since it is really close to People's Square. The lunch was really great and cheap with the menu concept, however, the drinks are between 40-60 RMB which is a bit pricey. The food was good, nothing exceptional. The service was rather slow with poor English. The evening we came back to... More

This is definitely one of my favorite places in Shanghai. The atmosphere is very peaceful and calm. It has a nice view, lots of tress and a pond around the restaurant. The food is delicious and the prices are reasonable as well. Besides the location is right in the city center. So I would totally recommend this place to have... More

Every time I am in Shanghai, I usually dine at this restaurant the night before my last stay. :) I love the location, ambiance & most especially the food! The staff are also nice & friendly. I'm so lucky that I got to take a photo with the Chef, hehehe! He's also friendly too!

I came here for lunch, and although the service wasn't the best, the food was excellent and the location is unbeatable. It's actually in the park, so it would be a great place for a date in the evening. Although the food was a little expensive, it was well-prepared and tasty, and they had a good variety of options on... More

Visited on a weekday at lunchtime, just passing through the People's Park and happened on the restaurant. Great views as you eat, I had 'eggs with a twist', a tapas meal, came with soup, salad and a small but great dessert, bread, and tea or coffee, all for 58 RMB - fantastic value. Definitely recommend

Nice restaruant with live music and sport events. The atmosphere is good for enjoying a few of their tap german beers. Food is good, the menu has nothing special that stands out, but we tried some pizzas and german sausage and they both were good. It was hard to find, the taxi driver had us looking for it for a...

... in particular - their cocktails - this also made for a truley lovely bar/restaurant. A little more expensive for drinks than on Tong Ren lu, or Mao Ming Lu, however with it being located around peoples square, next to the skyscraper that houses the Marriot hotel, the pricing of food and drink is actually quite reasonable. The venue itself... More
