I researched a lot about restaurants on the Bund and wanted to look for a restaurant that had a nice view, interesting food, and reasonably priced (for the Bund). El Willy definitely had great food especially since it's not your everyday cuisine. We ordered 2...More

I went there because I was tired of chinese food. Well, the tapas were amazing, specially the squids. The bread was warm and tasty too! Wide selection of wines, kind employees and nice ambient. If you wanna breath Spain in China, is the right place...More

Food is excellent, quantities are appropriate and the views to the river are splendid. One of the best Spanish restaurants in Shanghai for sure!

This is one of the most popular Spanish restaurants in Shanghai. Because it has moved to Waitan, along to the HuangPu river, it has newly acquired the beautiful scenery from the windows other than good food and lovely atmosphere which it already has had. So,...More

The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the
world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous
waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts
monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai
International Settlement run by the British and
Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has
endured over time and is now found in the five-star
hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive

“el Willy” cuisine focuses in Spanish traditional, contemporary tapas & rices with a fun twist. The structure of the menu follows the Chinese Yin Yang structure of a meal. All the food is designed to be shared family style & to be eaten comfortably with chopticks.
