Smart restaurant with stunning views

Great old building. Beautiful decor. Formal style. Excellent service. The views and the surroundings are what you pay for. It isn't cheap. Set menus on the Specials list run between about £70 -£150. We went cheaper with a la carte soup, meat dish and dessert. The food is good if unexceptional. It... read more

An absolute must visit for travelers and locals alike! Amazing wine cellar complements some of the best food in China, not just Shanghai! Owner Tim Tse is the consummate host, ensuring his staff's attentive world class service and his chef's culinary achievements! The food is creative and extraordinarily flavorful and features lots of locally sourced organic ingredients! The setting in... More

Gorgeous views from this rooftop bar. They have several beautiful unique drinks. I had the chocolate raspberry - delicious! Another in our party had the espresso martini. We also had their hamburger sliders. They were fresh and hot. But a bit on the bland side for my American tastebuds.

A Very nice place to spend an evening in Shanghai. The view from the top is wonderful, you can see the river & the TV tower across the river. Good place to enjoy your drink on the roof top. I visited in November the weather was very pleasant.

We have been with friends in the rooftop bar and I have to admit, that the view to the Bund and the skyline of Shanghai is amazing. In summer it must be even better, to have a cocktail under the open sky. I consider the prices for the cocktails as rather moderate.

Ask for a table with a view! Food is interesting combination of Asian and Western dishes. Menu is extensive and has something nice for everyone.

Wow, it's a good thing I didn't read the reviews before we visited lol! After 2 weeks in Shanghai, my boyfriend and I spent our last night walking on the Bund. The streets were empty as it was raining which was a relief not to have to dodge the daily procession of brides and grooms getting their photographs taken or... More

I ate here on a Saturday night with two coworkers. The food was very good: a ribeye Australian steak. The wine list was quite daunting with page after page of various wines from everywhere around the world. Thankfully there was a wine expert who was able to choose a great bottle for us. Lastly, the view was amazing overlooking the... More

Broke away from a tour group to have a different dinner experience and this was so worth it! Started at the rooftop bar for drinks overlooking the amazing Shanghai skyline. What an amazing night view and fantastic location. Drinks were a bit pricey but delicious and worth it for the view alone. We dined downstairs in the restaurant with a... More

The restaurant is in an English style building on the Bund. The inside is like an English club. Rooftop restaurant has spectacular views across the river. Good service and delicious food. Not typical Chinese food but more a mix of cuisines. Nice bar area with extensive wine list. Cheapest bottle of white wine was about RMB500. Would be great for... More

Staying in The Bund

Neighborhood Profile
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 restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
