Definitely my favorite French restaurant in Shanghai! Always a great experience for the past ~ 2 years since the new chef/owner arrived. For lunch or diner. Not as fancy and “fine dining” as some Bund address. Much more casual and bistro fares, yet excellent and...More

Very nice French cuisine in a cosy indoor and outdoor environment. Food is unpretentious but full of flavor. Nice menu and good wines. Had the eggplant for starter with the tartare steak, with a glass of cahors (red). Real good.

Real French food from a French chef with attention to quality and taste. Never fails to amaze with the everchanging and upgraded menu.

We were recommended this eatery by a local boutique owner, it was really fun and felt so French in the middle of Shanghai. We chose off the set lunch menu which was good idea. Main dish of gnocchi was really nice on a cold day...More

Decent French food, wine overpriced. Bread and crispy beef cheeks were pretty good. Atmosphere is that of a quaint restaurant in France. Terrible and overpriced wine.

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,

If you are looking for authentic French food in Shanghai seek no more! Le Saleya is just the place you want to be.Visiting Le Saleya is like being beamed up to the South of France in a family style establishment where owners get their hands dirty; where waiters run everywhere shouting out your order loudly, where the wine flows to pair traditional French dishes and ravish your palate; and where the kitchen door is widely opened, just because there is nothing to hide. Quite the opposite indeed. Proud of our sourcing and savoir-faire we love to share our methods, our kitchen stories, and our passion with our guests. There’s even a tiny special guests and friends’ kitchen table for the purists and the foodies that want to find out what being first in line during a “coups-de-feu” feels like.In January 2014, Le Saleya unveiled the next chapter in the restaurant’s history: a significant redesign, the extension of our terrace and a brand new menu designed by our Chef Philippe Charon. French style Suckling Pig, Pan-fried Goose Liver, Croustillant de Joue de Boeuf just to cite a few of our signature dishes that are to be washed down with a Pouilly Fuissé, a Bordeaux or a Côtes du Rhône, the epicurean way…Le Saleya is all about generosity, conviviality, memories, and a shared pleasure around the table. It shows a certain lifestyle and French tradition so rare to find in China.
