“Good German Food in the French Concession”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

If you are craving German food and beer in China, then this is the place to go. One of the oldest western restaurants in Shanghai, this place has a history of serving solid German food and fresh made beer in a traditional brauhaus atmosphere. The only downside to this place is the weekend brunch atmosphere which is overrun with birthday parties (avoid unless you have kids).

Location: Great. Heart of the former French Concession. Housed in a very German style brauhause with outdoor sitting.

Food: Very good. All the traditional fare. The brunch spread is actually quite generous with a good deal for under 300rmb for all you can eat including one of their signature beers. Seafood as well. Beers are awesome here.

Atmosphere: Good. Although depends on the timing. This place is good in the evenings for a nice dinner or perhaps lunch during the week. But turns into a bit of a playground on the weekends during brunch when this place gets booked out each weekend for birthday parties and you have to navigate through kids running around (a terrible setup by the management there to put it right in the middle of everything).

Service: Spotty. There are a few servers there that are super attentive and get it. Otherwise it is the pits. The ladies at the front don't do too much.

Value: Good brunch deal. Happy Hour is pretty good at BOGO during the week. Dishes here tend to be on the higher side otherwise.

Occasions: Business meals, birthday parties, kids, or maybe a night out with friends. Oktoberfest.

In summary a good choice for German food in Shanghai. Just pick your timings right, and enjoy the garden with a nice beer. The Oktoberfest is also a good time to go.
