Dinner at Otto e Mezzo was an amazing experience. Our last night in Shanghai and what a way to end the vacation. The staff was very attentive to us, especially our nine year old, who ended up receiving a personal tour of the kitchen by the chef and an honorary "youngest chef title". The food was award winning from the... More

Had a great night out here celebrating my sister's birthday. All ingredients were beautiful as was the wine (vie de romans, sauvignon blanc). They have a solid, perhaps not super original list. Leonardo's service was professional, attentive, amusing and generous. I will return whenever I am in Shanghai and have replenished my bank account (not a super cheap place).

Dear Guest, thank you for your feed back and we are glad you had a good time with us ! In terms of wine list, we work quite hard to select our own wines, trying to import new products and I must say quite successfully so far. China is not an open market, therefore this process is quite slow and... More

Business dinner. The attention to detail and the expertise of the staff is astonishing. We enjoyed the dinner very much. We stayed a bit longer than the dinner to discuss and we would never have wanted to leave that place. I strongly advise you to try the black truffle ice cream with meringues and melanosporum truffle. Never had a better... More

One true indicator that you at the right place for excellent Italian food is , when the Italian president walks in for dinner ! But this small additional experience was only the last piece to make it perfect ! There is nothing which from my point of view could have been done to make it better. The setup , the... More

Been there on Tuesday, what an experience, great atmosphere but most importante the food was divine. As a start suggest you ask for a soup that contains truffle and mushrooms, main course go for the Colorado lamb, desert take a turtle ice cream. The service was outstanding, ask for Wanessa, very knowledgable and friendly, she has complemented the lovely night... More

We arrived for lunch without a booking and made very welcome. We had been walking and opted to cool down with a drink at the bar. There is a very good drinks list including an extensive wine list.

Staying in The Bund

Neighbourhood Profile
The Bund
While there are certainly many other “bunds” in the world, “the Bund” refers to Shanghai’s famous waterfront. The area’s Gothic, Art Deco and Beaux Arts monoliths were built when it was part of the Shanghai International Settlement run by the British and Americans. The atmosphere of colonial-era luxury has endured over time and is now found in the five-star hotels, luxury brand boutiques and expensive restaurants that can be found within the historic buildings. A cultural center has built up away from the water and some of Shanghai’s best art galleries and museums are housed close to the Bund. Nighttime views of Pudong and the rest of the city also make for a great backdrop at the many rooftop clubs.
