Nice and cosy is Franck tucked away in a small street. The service is good, the food very tasty and the restaurant nicely decorated and lit. Definite a place to return too!

Franck's is, quite simply, the best food we've had in the city. The prices are a bit steep, but with such excellent food and service, it can't be beat. My husband and I usually wind up both ordering the steak each time we visit because...More

Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly
governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French
Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that
is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While
it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will
sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their
mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area
seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet,

When stepping in a bistrot, client follow the chef’s inspiration, and eventually what he found at the wet market few hours before. The menu is usually small, and follows the seanonal products.At Franck, the Menu du jour changes almost daily. Timeless classical parisian bistro fares hasn’t changed, since grand-mother's time.The Starters are to be shared, with generous portions, just like a diner at home. Guests love the casual service, helping themselves to the Terrine de campagne, cold cuts or fresh oysters.
