The Peking duck was amazing! I hear it is not as good as in Beijing. But we loved it. If you want the duck, make sure you order once you are seated as it can take some time and they need to make sure it is available.

This is one of the most pleasant places to dine on the Bund. The Peace Hotel is historic and beautiful. The Dragon and Phoenix has exquisitely prepared traditional Chinese items with outstanding staff and service in a beautiful setting. Expensive but for many visitors, it will be worth it.

The food was very good, and reasonably priced. We had Peking Duck as well as their seasonal prix fixed selections. We liked it so much we ate there every chance we got. We stayed at the Fairmont, which is recently restored to its historic grandeur. The restaurant was a pleasant surprise--we went for the view, but loved the service.

We found the service to be very attentive, the food was excellent and the view of the Bund was exceptional, all in a very historic location. We would certainly go again!

It is hard to separate the food from the beautiful building this restaurant is located in. We had very good authentic Shanghai meals at a window overlooking The Bund. Great fish and prawns with lovely service. Then caught some jazz in the bar downstairs. A very fine evening that was appreciated.

Located inside the Peace Hotel in the Bund this is a gorgeously renovated Art Deco restaurant. The food is Chinese and very reasonably priced for the location. The service was friendly and helpful and if you're lucky you'll get a table next to the window looking across the river to Shanghai's famous skyline.

I arrived around 5:30 and since I didn't have a booking I was given a table near the front door. However I saw if you are a westerner and argue with them they will try and accommodate you to get a window seat. Since I wanted to try the mitten crab I got their package menu but in hindsight should... More

The restaurant was recommended by a friend. It was supposed to be good as it was at an iconic landmark, Peace Hotel by the Bund. I checked the menu and price was alright so I booked there with my family. 1. All staff apart from a male manager were not helpful. 2. Food price was alright but drink was outrageously... More

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.
