This is a lovely restaurant in a beautiful old house in Shanghai. You can enter through a wonderful interiors shop and get quite side tracked looking at the china, glass , candles and general homeware products on sale. The menu is modern European, we tried the salmon and the steak, both were really good. There was a good wine list but as with a lot of Shanghai wine lists, not cheap.

Had our annual Year end dinner there. The back yard's room is very cozy and nice. Perfect to sit 20-25 pers. We could chose one set menu only (298rmb/pers). Choice of main dishes was quite restricted - 1 meat dish and 3 fish dishes. My fish was good but my colleagues who took beef didn't like it at all. Dessert was good (chocolate Nemesis). The one who took Tiramisu had a very big portion. Wine selection is food.
While waiting for my other colleagues, I asked for snacks...I have been said that peanuts are served only after 10pm!!!!!!!!!! I never heard that before. I was offered as snacks before dinner : fried onion rings, french fries, mashed potatoes and one more which I don't recall!
The atmosphere and the area is really nice but I don't think I will try this restaurant for dinner again.
