We were pleasantly surprised to find Cafe Montmartre empty at 11 am on a Saturday. My husband had the quiche du jour, I had the brunch (a selection of sweet and savory items, hot beverage and a juice). The waitstaff was attentive, but also let us chase our toddler around the restaurant without reproach while we waited for our food.... More

The service here is one of the most excellent ones i had experienced in Shanghai, truly memorable due to their helpful nature. Weekend brunch is really good and value for money. Reminds me of Parisian food and ambience.

This place is a gem. The chef has some unique creations that are magnificent. We tried the smoked vegetable stack, the wild mushroom and white wine risotto, the ratatouille and for dessert the amazing citron gourmand and equally fantastic poached apple and home made yoghurt for dessert. Each one was a taste sensation. It was so good we went back... More

I happen to find this wonderful restaurant after deciding to explore the other side of West YanAn from JingAn. It was a beautiful afternoon so I sat outside. They brought a basket of french bread that was warm from the oven with olive oil. It was so good, that I went inside and ordered a whole bagguette, along with a... More

Genuine french cuisine (we stayed a few decades in France), modern touch (cold soup made of haricots blancs, king prawn (over a risotto)) and home made dessert (flan aux pruneaux). We dined for 800 rmb for two (entree plat dessert + a bottle of french wine). The staff, available and attentive to clients makes it a quite pleasant place.

We went wandering from our Hilton hotel in the area and came across this little cafe. While it appears unassuming it is marvellous. We had the cheese platter, escargot, the risotto with mushrooms and the veal. I had a chardonnay. The cheese platter was generous, and the french bread was out of this world. The meals were exquistely prepared and... More

Back in Shanghai after a year's absence. The Montmartre which was excellent a year ago has had a smart refit making even more worth visiting. Audrey and the team are as lovely as ever and the food is just divine

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.
