Sadly I cannot support the earlier reviews of this restaurant. We chose to dine at lingo bistrot having eaten at the owners other restaruant in Suzhou ( which was outstanding!)

We ate on the Monday evening of the spring break which may have impacted the service - but it was truly dreadful .

We ordered beer - didn't have ANY beer. Went with a martini - awful ( un-drinkable) so ordered water . We selected the shared rib eye ( looked delicious on the menu). What was presented was not rib eye - it was a an over cooked fatty "steak"

When they served it we had to ask for plates to eat off of. There was more meat we couldn't eat than could.
Sorry to say we left hungry and dissappointed

Been there many times for both lunch and dinner. Set menus are very affordable and what you have in your plate is really good value. I took the duck, really tasty and delicious. What I like the most is the lamp on the ceiling. Dessert I took the chocolate fondant. So nice.

This is a fantastic restaurant. It has one of those menus where you want everything on it because it all sounds so good! The ambience is nice and the staff are friendly and polite. The food was delicious and the wine selection was very good for China. The best thing about this restaurant is its value for money. The food is incredibly reasonably priced, especially for the quality. We came back here twice during our 3 day stay as we loved it so much!

This restaurant is in a shopping centre just off Peoples Square. The menu is authentically French and very well priced - RMB118 for a 2 course set menu including a generously portions steak. Ambience and Service were also very good and there was a decent cocktail and wine list. All up a meal for 2 was RMB502 including 2 cocktails and bottle of wine. Good value and I will be back.
