Food: This is a high-end French dining experience. It is not a bistro. They offer alacarte, but you can choose a menu of 4-6 dishes and choose from the alacarte menu at set prices (4 dishes was around 800 yuan + beverages). We ordered the foie gras with truffles (recommended) for entre and the merino lamb (highly recommended) for main.... More

Amazing restaurant with great food and very attentive service. The entire hotel is very very posh. Sir Elly's is no exception. The restaurant was surprisingly empty on a Friday night, probably the corrupt officials are not entertain so much these days. The views are fantastic, same as the atmosphere and the food. We had an amazing Wagyu Tomahawk that was... More

My friend and I were traveling to Shanghai for a leisure trip in December. We went to the Sir Elly's terrace on the last day of our stay for drink. It was amazing, we actually regretted why didn't we find out it earlier. The location couldn't be more perfect. The rooftop bar offers many amazing night views with the Century... More

Elly's Restaurant made my birthday lunch special. The food was sumptuous but the King Crab Cannelloni was outstanding. There was a variety of accompanying bread rolls but the bacon ones are worth looking out for. Despite me not wanting a birthday cake the chef made my dessert extra special by presenting it wit a Happy Birthday plaque made of chocolate.... More

We went for a meal at Sir Elly's to celebrate my wife's birthday with my family in August 2015. Sadly we had an inside table, but still were able to enjoy the spectacular views of the Pudong riverside. Right from entry the service was excellent. Well trained, friendly staff took care of us. The sommelier put me on to some... More

Great views, interesting crowd and a gin cocktail list that goes long. Just stop by for the 7pm 'lighting' of the financial center every evening....Great spot.

The views, the service and the feeling was so great that we had drinks twice in the outdoor terrace when we were in Shanghai. Perfect for a pre-dinner cocktail or drinks to see Shanghai light up.

This was our first visit to Sir Elly's. Walking through Sir Elly's lounge on the 13th floor into the restaurant, there is a fantastic panoramic view of the Bund in three directions. The seating staff are very cordial and professional. The environment in the restaurant is quiet for conversation with soft music, and enough distance between tables for privacy. The... More

We went to Sir Ellis for just some drinks at the terrace. The Terrace has stunning views (a-ma-zing!!) to the Pudong area, and luckily we got THE best table at the terrace, with a magnificent view. But then, since it was getting late for dinner, we decided to try their restaurant one flooor below. We hadn't read any reviews, so... More

Sir Elly's Terrace is an upscale, contemporary rooftop bar and lounge. The views of the Pudong skyline are stunning and are arguably the best in Shanghai. The drinks are pricey but fantastic. Service was great. A fantastic venue for late night drinks.

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.
