In Shanghai, one gets used to paying top dollar for restaurants that are rated as being very good and even excellent but where one usually finds that the food and possibly the service as well is really quite ordinary. Rarely does everything come together for an all together wow experience. 8 1/2 Otto e Mezzo Bombana is one of these... More

It was May 5th and a day which is a celebration in China for the romantics as the date sounds like "I Love You" in Chinese. So we happen to be in Shanghai and had a booking to have dinner at Otto e Mezzo. It wasn't easy to find the restaurant as cars couldn't enter the pedestrian walkway. However dinner... More

I dined with my mom and boyfriend at Otto e Mezzo for my birthday. The service was exquisite, they let us have a table close to the window despite having told us it would have been quite difficult; they also organized a nice cake with candles for me (under request); service impeccable throughout the dinner as well. Food is great,... More

We tried this restaurant on the last night of our Shanghai trip and it was stunning experience. We managed to get window seat with magnificent view of the Bund colorful light.

Dinner at Otto e Mezzo was an amazing experience. Our last night in Shanghai and what a way to end the vacation. The staff was very attentive to us, especially our nine year old, who ended up receiving a personal tour of the kitchen by the chef and an honorary "youngest chef title". The food was award winning from the... More

Had a great night out here celebrating my sister's birthday. All ingredients were beautiful as was the wine (vie de romans, sauvignon blanc). They have a solid, perhaps not super original list. Leonardo's service was professional, attentive, amusing and generous. I will return whenever I am in Shanghai and have replenished my bank account (not a super cheap place).

Dear Guest, thank you for your feed back and we are glad you had a good time with us ! In terms of wine list, we work quite hard to select our own wines, trying to import new products and I must say quite successfully so far. China is not an open market, therefore this process is quite slow and... More

Business dinner. The attention to detail and the expertise of the staff is astonishing. We enjoyed the dinner very much. We stayed a bit longer than the dinner to discuss and we would never have wanted to leave that place. I strongly advise you to try the black truffle ice cream with meringues and melanosporum truffle. Never had a better... More

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.
