The second time was August 2nd 2014 and the experience was totally different except for the price which was the same as the last time . We ordered Fish Soup on both occassions, the first time it was sensational... More

My wife and I had eaten here in September and found it excellent. We enjoyed it so much that we asked to see the chef to compliment him.So when we had family coming to visit it was an obvious choice for a last-night special meal. The evening started badly with some confusion over the cocktails (the waiter didn't write down... More

The entrance was half blocked by a big car, obviously a chinese guest that didn't want to walk more than 2 meters. Food was OK. The average house wine for 89 and 99 RMB per glass was presented in the glass only without referring to what we drink there. Amount rather less than 0.2 liter. The main dish came tasty... More

This was our second meal here and we were still impressed. The service here is very good - attentive without being intrusive. We were greeted with a glass of orange and mango juice. - very welcome in the growing heat of Shanghai. This appetizer was a mushroom and shrimp flan - the shrimps were cooked well, and were firm and... More

Love Spanish meal but could hardly find a real good one in Shanghai in my many years of dinning sxperience. Going Martin is a surprising smart choice. They offer reasonaby priced set lunch menu but don't go for it. Their a-la-carte is excellent, especially their tapas ( they called it dishes for sharing) and the yummy red pawn. If you... More

After reading bad comments about the service in the restaurant beggining, I was really surprised about the attention, the quality of the food (I'm from Barcelona), the taste of it, the place... It's ovbious that this restaurant has been working hardly in order to become one of the best options in Shanghai.

While on holiday in Shanghai, I chose to take my wife and family to Restaurant Martin for our 17 th wedding anniversary for a nice dinner as this fine dining restaurant was by the star Michelin Spanish chef, Martin Berastegui. We had a five course meal as they did not offer their standard menu because of the Chinese Valentine day.The... More

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.
