“Nice spanish dishes in SH”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

Two families went there. Services were good. Lamb chops and cheese platter were delicious. the ham they served was 24mths and i would expect something better. Overall food quality and service were good and the price was reasonable. Could be a good try as you may enjoy the view there

“Utterly disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

Unfortunately disappointing. Had heard great things about this place from my friends so decided to take my girlfriend there for her birthday- was not the birthday treat I was expecting. Aside from receiving poorly presented food after a 45 minute wait, it took us ordering a new round of drinks 3 times before actually receiving them.

“delicious tapas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Having recently moved to Shanghai we are busily exploring this fabulous city. We headed down to the lujiazui river side to explore this restaurant precinct. We chose La verbena because we hadn't yet had any spanish cuisine in Shanghai

This restaurant precinct is a pleasant spot - and provides a different perspective of the river and bund opposite if you have tended to pursue eateries and bars at a higher level.

This particular restaurant has a glass wall river side - so you get a good view of the busy river and the shore opposite - and now the weather is pleasant you can take advantage of the outdoor terrace they have riverside.

The service is excellent and the head waiter spoke excellent english - we found the staff very attentive. The tapas menu has a varied selection. We went with the meat platter, mushroom croquets, tenderloin beef with pepper and artichoke heart (my personal favourite) lamb chops, potato braves, each serve had 4 pieces at a cost of 68 - 98 RMB. The food was excellent and presented very well.

finished the evening with a shared platter of fruit and the boys ate dessert. all in all (with a couple of beers) it came to 300 rmb a head. So reasonable given it's location.

in terms of ambience - i found the decor a bit kitsch - fabric covers on the chairs (like at a wedding) I would say this restaurant borders on casual dining.

I'd go back for the tapas for sure

Wonderful Spanish food and wine in a great location on the river! Fantastic Jamon Iberico!
Busy, trendy, and alive! A great find in Shanghai.

“Delightful Find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Walking along the boardwalk of the Huangpu River, past the riverboat wharf we came across a number of restaurants. Each is well spaced from the other with out door settings and river views. We chose La Verbana as we felt like something different to Shanghai cuisine. The choice was excellent. A young Chinese speaking Philippino is the senior waiter and he was very helpful in the selection process.
Service was overall very good...clearly everyone was trying hard. Seems from previous reviews service ahs been problematic...but was very solid for us.
Started with small salads in glasses...consisted of layers-lettuce, tomato, avocado, sliced marinated scallops and spring onion on top. Followed by a very tender calamari and some Iberian ham crocettes. For main course we shared a seafood paella which was good but just a little dry.
Great night...very enjoyable and we will return on another trip...
