“Food has arrived!”
Review of Whispers - CLOSED

Whispers
Description: Whispers is a small, new bar/cafe which has just opened in Xiamen immediately behind the Crowne Plaza Hotel. We were amongst its first customers this month. Telephone number is 5106882, really cool little place run by a couple of delightful ladies. Very limited menu at the moment but a great place to just chill. Telephone Number 5106882

“Food has arrived!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012 via mobile

After a slight and unavoidable (I am told) delay, food has arrived in Whispers!
Delicious hot, chicken and mushroom or minced beef pies and pizzas, all hand made and VERY tasty. Really good value too at RMB30 each or you can have a pie or pizza and a pint of Carlsberg as I did this time for only RMB50.
Having sickened myself of hotel food in my room at the nearby Crowne Plaza it is nice to know I can pop a few yards down the road and have a bit of home cooking.

“Cool New Venue in Xiamen”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

First thing I have to say is that Whispers is, like all other such places in Xiamen, primarily a bar that will, very shortly, serve some food, basically real English pub-grub we are told.

Second thing is "What a fantastic find!". Small, cool and intimate, just opened in the last couple of weeks and owned/run by two delightful ladies, Fiona and Linda.

We came across Whispers purely by chance after shopping at the local Carrefour and this has rapidly become our favourite place in Xiamen to hang-out in an evening with friends.

Situated just behind the Crowne Plaza hotel in what seems to be growing into a more convenient bar area for those of us who live in the city centre, than hiking across town to the "coffee street" area.

Some real thought has gone into the external design of Whispers which really looks as close to the front of an English Pub as one is likely to find in Xiamen, warm and inviting outside, cool and intimate inside, a real find.
