My friend brought me here to enjoy tapas and a quiet cocktail. While the food was nothing special, the ambiance was downright magical. My friend, who lives and works in Shanghai, tells me she comes there sometimes and the place always makes her proud and happy to be living and working in one of the most dynamic cities in the...

I went here with family and tried out a variety of their dishes. The cheese selection had quite a lot of variety yet all were consistent in their taste delivery. I also had the salmon and squid and I must say this was my favorite. The sauce was scrumptious and the salmon crust was delicious. The steak, salad, and fish... More

It is beautifully situated in People's Park overlooking the little lake. After an enjoyable morning sightseeing we were looking forward to lunch. Here was perfect. We had ravioli and lasagne. Accompanied by a salad, they were all very tasty. We finished with a coffee and cappuccino. The staff were grand. Coupled with the appealing location, we had a pleasant and... More

It's like discovering the secret garden, this lovely structure is surrounded my a lake with picturesque lily pads. On the weekends for brunch you can sit al fresco and you can sit there mesmerized by the shimmering of the pond. Lovely for evenings too. Has a Turkish theme. Has Sisha. Ideal for date night.

Absolutely horrible, plus a rip off. The setting is very nice but forget the food. Have an extremely overpriced drink experience.

Located inside People's Square in the middle of Shanghai, this is a nice place for enjoying the dinner. I had grilled garlic and chili prawns for starter and an Angus steak for main course, both where well made and tasted great. My colleague had a Caesar salad and lamb for main course. Both where good, however the salad was big... More

Staying in People’s Square

Neighbourhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
