Great location in the park and a plesant design, but that is where the positives end. Tables are squeezed in far too close to each other, offering zero privacy, complimented by a scowling host who informed us of a time limit of 90 minutes to complete our sitting. Next the food which was below average and over priced - overcooked duck, poorly seasoned chicken, and rubbery shrimp balls. There are dozens of much better restaurants in the city. Poor.

Food is ok but they rip you of when you order a snack from the afternoon tea menu without a soft drink. Menu is 75 yuan including soft drink. I ordered beer instead and they charge you 115 plus the beer! So double charge you!
Don't go there

This establishment has a very pretty setting beside a picturesque pond, which is surrounded by tables and umbrellas. At 630pm we were not able to access these tables. A perfect setting for a G&T before dinner or a glass of wine, the staff were not willing to serve the outdoor tables. Perhaps it was the 35 degree heat. The restaurant was very busy and popular by 8pm, but no one was able to dine outside. a real shame. overall the food was very good and decor very Balinese. the staff friendly too. Using the outdoor facilities was the reason for dinning there.

On the balcony we had a wonderful view into Jing'an Park. There were only 3 tables on the balcony but the service was very attentive. When it started raining the staff asked us if we want to change our table. But we enjoyed the view to the pond and stayed outside.
The food was good, the sea food platter was just a bit over cooked.
We enjoyed our dinner and I can recommend this restaurant for its location and service.

We went for dinner and the restaurant itself is beautiful, gorgeously set around a large pond in Jing'an Park. Menus we're mainly in english, and the waiters had a basic grasp of English which made it easy to order. The food itself wasn't fantastic, but they had a decent wine list and it was very serene.
