I have been in China for 3 years and this is the first Michelin-star worth restaurant I go to. Everything is great, from the design to the food. And the view is beautiful, right behind former British Embassy, overlooking the Bund and Pudong´s skyline. We had the tasting menu which was superb, just the right portions, cooked to the perfection. The wine list is pretty amazing and the GM sure knows his wines.
I really highly recommend it!

Was fortunate enough to try this restaurant the other day

Stunning room, well trained and well mannered team of professionals

The food (and we had a lot) paired with individual wines, was stunning

really nothing to fault. Location perhaps a little tricky to find if you don't know but worth it

for those who still enjoy a 'Fine Dining' experience, this is the place

glad I was fortunate enough to be hosted by a friend as I think the bill would have been a healthy one

give yourself a treat!

Surely this must be the finest restaurant in Shanghai today?   It's pioneering location in RockBund (one if only a handful of tenants in this great new development behind the old British Consulate) is slightly disconcerting until the lift doors open on to a wonderful (the best?) view of the river and Pudong behind.    The service is impeccable.  The food is divine (especially the hairy crab in Parmesan foam) and the atmosphere is classy.    Only the view reminds you that you really are experiencing this level of quality in a city not known for service perfection.  But all this is not cheap.  Over 3,000rmb for two people with one of their cheapest bottles of wine means this is a special occasion choice only - but what a good choice it is.

Came here on a recommendation and it didn't disappoint. At 2100 on a Saturday evening it seemed a bit dead around and and about, but everything was great once we'd found the place and been shown to our seats. Loved the food and great wine selection. On the pricey side but you get what you pay for and this place didn't disappoint.
