For the past couple of years we have enjoyed the food / wine / atmosphere @ Mr Willis many times. During our visit on May 14 the food was mediocre at best. None of the 4 starters-4 mains-dessert were satisfying, very heavy / greasy. Did...More

Nice location, lovely decor, staff speaks superb English. Large menu that ranges from pricy to "Take out a second mortgage". We sat down and were immediately assaulted by bad music played loudly, so loudly that I could not hear Mrs Narsfweasels speak. Normally that would...More

An old house, in the border of the french concession, restaurant is on 3 floor. Their grilled chicken is excellent. Avoid the pic hours as this place is known and can be crowdy. One of my prefered place in Shanghai.

I love this restaurant and I am always coming back when visiting Shanghai. Great atmosphere and very nice setting. The food is always good and has a really mentionable wine list. Service is also very good.

Great food in Mr Willis, located next door to Baker and Spice on Anfu Lu. Good selection of seafoods and a lot of pizzas too.

They really know how to cook chicken. They make chicken perfectly tender, so moist, so tasty. However, the beefs in the neighbouring tables looked so good, that will go to taste after the weather cools down a bit.

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
