Very well fitting into the "former french concession" style of Ferguson Lane Eduardo Vargas delivers again ! Modern tapas, fair sized portions/plates and alwayz new and seasonal items. The appetizer plate was the only slight letdown - but definitely go for the ceviche and the chorizo! Home made Sangria def a Must have in hot sumer. Fast service !

I have organised several business team meetings and day events at Azul, the experience has been great and Azul team goes an extra mile to ensure all needs are beyond expectations, great team effort and love the place.

Azul was recommended by friends who live in Shanghai and it didn’t disappoint. Located in the quiet, leafy French Concession the restaurant occupies the top floor, including an outside terrace, of a restored art deco building that bustles with cafes and creative agencies. A very eclectic, international crowd – you’ll hear several languages. We were there for Saturday brunch and... More

Offered not only Spanish food but rather South American food - Peruvian. Nice and great variety of choices for brunch. Good value. Must try the flan!!! You will fall in love with it!

Azul is one of Shanghai old restaurants. After moving to this location (not sure if original owner still there ) food quality is not what it used to be. Been there several times and regretfully have to say that there are better tapas places in Shanghai. Have nice roof top but food is mediocre.

Disappointed. Much of the tapas seemed to be made off site. Wine ran out after first bottle. Service was "ok". But all in all a bit of a disappointment. Com'on - put more effort in and stop relying on being foreign as a differentiator.

I had not eaten at Azul since they moved from Dongping Lu. Back then this was a Shanghai favorite. After reading many favorable reviews I thought it may be time to try again. I and my guest arrived at prime time to a very empty restaurant. We started with Scallops. I would like to comment on the flavor of the... More

Excellent taste and cool tapas. We had a selection of many different tapas and they were really delicious. Super tasty croquetas. The service is quite good and can tell that the food is always prepared in a fancy way taking care till the minimum detail. Cool for couples and company dinners.

Not quite sure why this restaurant is listed as "Spanish" "Mediterranean" as it is neither! However, Central/South American flavors prevail. Tostadas with Shrimp, Argentinian Steak, Chimichuri, Ceviche etc... Folks, get an atlas! As this was Brunch, there were some more conventional offerings such as Pancakes with whipped Cream. I (mostly) enjoyed a dish of eggs atop Roasted (burnt) Potatoes, Cubes... More

We went for first time and we'll come back soon. Don't miss the way to roof terrace, staff was very nice and commited and the most important: food was really good for value, coming out fast, the touch of presentation makes you feeling relaxed while enjoying the taste with filling portions. Highly recommended.

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighborhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
