Pros; elegant space with amazing views; you are amongst the buildings, wrap around windows, elevated bar, we had dinner for 40 with a set menu which was done very well. Steak, tomatoe salad both very well done. Cons: service at times not on the mark

I found Cucina to be a very good, but expensive, Italian restaurant. The food was very good and I enjoyed the service, the wine list, and the overall experience. Depending on where you sit, you could have a great view of the open kitchen, the Shanghai skyline, or a more intimate area. Both times I dined there the food was... More

I had dinner here with work colleagues and the food, service and views were excellent. There is a wide variety of choice on the menu so if you are craving some western food this is the place to come. The views are second to none and with such good service it is a must visit when in Shanghai

Visited for dinner and it was a good place to be. Great views. We had a Lobster pasta. Lamb to share. And the food was exceptionally divine. Which I made a point to pay a compliment to the chef as I left the restaurant. Other than that- this outlets fails miserably on the service side. From the maitre d to... More

Adorable place especially for those who loves modern buildings. Hyatt hotel takes 53-88 floors. It is also the way for a bar Cloud 9 which located on top of the building.

I was told this was a nice alternative to a run up the Pearl Tower and would now agree. The view is quite good and more enjoyable than a simple observation tower option. Enter the main Grand Hyatt entrance and take the elevator up to the lobby on 54 to switch and continue on to Cucina.

Ate with a long term supplier for an evening meal and the view over a smoggy Bund and Pudong was nothing short of spectacular. The wine list was extensive and the French bottle we selected to match the meats and pasta was pretty good value compared with the price of the food. 370 Yuan for a marinara fettuccine was a...

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.
