This place had amazing food and ambience was also very nice. The map / direction needs to be corrected, as place shown is not correct. The restaurant is inbetween Zizhong rd and Taicang road.

El Luchador is in a less busy location of Xintiandi with outdoor sitting. We go there normally once a month and the service is always good. Nice and well prepared food. Love their non-alcoholic drinks too (spiced pineapple)!

The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a
carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled
with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area
below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most
fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can
