Wow. This place was truly impressive.

Food - Spectacular - easily one of the best dinners i've had in quite a while. 4 of us went for dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the variety of tapas on the venue. We got the: hummus dip, spanish bruschetta, crispy calamari, garlic chicken, azul meatballs, pork ribs, spanish salad, and to top it off with the azul seafood rice. We also complemented the meal with the red and white margaritas. I've got to say, the food was absolutely delicious. Most of all, the prices are very reasonable. Definitely coming back next time to try out the rest of the menu.

Atmosphere - the restaurant did a great job with the top floor on ferguson lane. The bar is stationed right next to a beautiful antique / translucent clock. The interior decoration / ambience is friendly for both romantic and casual dinners. I mainly came for the terrace, which i read to be one of the top terraces in town according to Smart Shanghai.

Service - The menu can be slightly intimidating due to the number of options available, but our server was extremely helpful. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. It's clear that he was very passionate about his work.

I can't say enough good things about this place. I will definitely be back.

Wife and I went on Saturday afternoon with friends. Very nice set brunch and loved the pancakes. Service was good and staff spoke good English. Thought value for brunch was good when compared to expat places in Shanghai as it included entre, main, and a drink. We sat in the adjoining room so view was good but noise level was a bit high so a little too noisy for a cozy conversation. Food and drinks were good. We will be back.

Great delicious brunch, with a Spanish twist on the menu with Chorizo or jamon, or the tried and true like eggs benedict and blueberry pancakes. The set meal pricing is one of the very few remaining bargains in Shanghai, with 3 courses and a drink.

The location is in a nice restaurant enclave in the middle of the French Concessions, called Ferguson Lane. The location is full of other restaurants, bars, and cafe's, with Azul being at the top floor with two large balconies with nice views for when the weather's nice (we did not sit outside due to the heat). The interior decoration is highlighted by a large classic clock which lines the exterior of the building.

It's a Tapas and Lounge restaurant so the excellent brunch was a pleasant surprise. Next time we will try the dinner tapas and drinks.
