Place is nice with a great terrace on a roof. Brunch menu is well designed although make sure you order dessert at the same time with appetizer and main course. Big chance they won't have your dessert selection by the time you finished main course. Sangria is good but requires a lot of rest after one glass (too much booze... More

The place is located in the busy area of the French concession during the week end. The best part of the restaurant is the small terrace (max 20 people) with a view on the big villas around. It is quiet. The brunch formula below 200 RMB for 3 dishes a drink and a coffee is a good bargain. Food is... More

The restaurant furnitures start to be old, as well as decoration . Food is good but not exceptional. The only good thing is the terrace . For a restaurant in Ferguson lane? It could have been better.

It's one of the tapas restaurant I will recommend. You can find many kinds of food on menu, not only the taps, seafood, steak and lamp chop are all tasty. A good place to spending time with friends. Each portion is not too big, so we enjoy to share many dishes and white wine.

The fact of being located on popular Ferguson Lane doesn't make a restaurant good. Food is just so-so. The ceviche we had were lumps of fish swimming in a spicy, acidic broth, had far better ceviche in other Latin American restaurants in the city. Risotto was dry and tasteless, and the lamb shank came without any garnish, veggies or starch.... More

Roof top dinning fun. Food well prepared with generous portions. Service a little hit and miss but mainly OK. Be careful of spices. When it is marked as hot they mean it.

The place was in a building kind of renovated from old, so the overall of the environment was nice! The menu was quite a typical one with tapas, paella etc. The portion was very generous though the taste was only so-so. The price was reason alone given the dish was good I portion. Also a good place to chill with... More

Very well fitting into the "former french concession" style of Ferguson Lane Eduardo Vargas delivers again ! Modern tapas, fair sized portions/plates and alwayz new and seasonal items. The appetizer plate was the only slight letdown - but definitely go for the ceviche and the chorizo! Home made Sangria def a Must have in hot sumer. Fast service !

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighbourhood Profile
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, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
