You can look down on the most busting Gangnam Area of Seoul city center from here on the 52nd floor. Especially, the night view is really beautiful. The food price is around 90 dollars. It is a little inconvenient to wait long for elevators to get to the restaurant. This restaurant provides catering service and also has an extra space... More

The restaurant was completely empty save for us an another table.This was actually enjoyable, seeing as we had our pick of seating. The views from this 52nd floor restaurant in Gangnam were incredible. The food was just okay. I would go back again only for the magical views!

The view, the food and the service: it was everything perfect. The funniest thing is to “fish” our own lobster.

I have actually visited the Marco Polo on 4 or 5 occasions and have used it for work events as well as personally. It is a great experience, with a dedicated lift to take you up to the 52nd floor so you can look over most of Seoul, which is a great vantage point in this unique city. Sure the... More

If I checked the review in tripadvisor, I would have not booked, I regret it. This restaurant became famous because it is in higher floors than any other restaurants in Seoul. Because of the view they think they deserve high priced food, but the reality is not close to it. Some people might know, the night view in Korea is... More

Wow....$25 for a glass of house wines, $20 for capuccino, $45 for a spagetti.....$15 for sparkling water.... What the hell? The view is great, but that is all they can offer. Food taste not good for the price. Plus, they charge you tax separately on top of the price. I know there are many rip-off, non reasonable places in Seoul,... More

This restauraunt is on the 52nd floor in Gangnam district with a beautiful view of the river. Our party was seated in private room and although it was very hazy, the view was amazing. The service was also impeccable. The food, was very nice but not the best I've ever had. I had the filet of beef with fois gras... More

Being with a diplomat, our party of four had the privilege to be seated in a private salon with a magnificent view. We ordered a Peking Duck with a few side dishes for the four of us. They showed us the baked beast - nice, big, and fleshy. But what came back on our plates would hardly feed a canary.... More

Staying in Samseongdong / COEX

Neighbourhood Profile
Samseongdong / COEX
A large business hub, Samseongdong is anchored by Korea’s World Trade Center, where many important business exhibitions and meetings are held. The enormous COEX mall sprawls underground, providing a myriad of things to do and see, including a large aquarium and movie theater. For a bit of peace and zen, head over to the ornate Bongeunsa Temple which is one of Korea’s most important places of worship. Or take a stroll nearby through the tranquil royal burial grounds of Seonjeongneung, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
