With an operation on the PoDong side of Shanghai, step one is finding places to eat. I've been going to The Kitchen for years, real good continental style, but the view of downtown Shanghai and the Bund is spectacular. Nice western wine selection too.

What most impressed me about this place was their observation and initiative. First, when they came to clear our table, they asked if everything was okay with my meal when they noticed that I had only eaten half of my spaghetti. I didn't finish because I was full and got the rest to-go, but I'm assuming they probably would've done... More

Service is mediaocre, prices rather high but the location makes up for it. Extensive menu, good wine selection. Terrace right by the river.

I had a salad as a starter, which was really nice. As a main course I had a pizza, which was delicious. As a desert I had a tiramisu. The wine... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the concierge at our hotel, and it did not disappoint. After a steady diet of Chinese food, we were looking for a good Italian alternative. The food and atmosphere was spectacular, with an outdoor patio overlooking the waterfront. The entrance was a little difficult to locate, and our cab driver actually dropped us... More

I usually eat there twice a year, I went a few times last spring though. I am in love with this place, the surrounding, and of course the amazing view on the river and the bund just across the huangpu. Either you sit inside or outside, you can enjoy it. The place is a bit pricey, but the wine is... More

Ocopus as a starter and grilled seafish as the main course. That's what I took. I had it accompanied by glasses of white wine. Sitting outside we enjoyed the great view on the river and Bunt skyline. I loved the food and the service was exelllent too. Thanks again Salvatore crew for the wondeful evening.

Neighbourhood Profile
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
