Unforgettable Dining Experiences
Peninsula hotels are renown for redefining luxury hospitality. The quality of service extends to every detail of their ten properties, including to the unforgettable restaurant and bar experiences.
Dining at The Peninsula Shanghai
The Peninsula Shanghai has three signature restaurants and three bars for guests and locals to take in the fine setting along The Bund with the city lights of the Pudong skyline just across the river.
The Lobby Lounge
All Peninsula hotels welcome guests with a magnificent open space, high-ceiling lobby lounge. The Lobby Lounge at The Peninsula Shanghai is certainly no exception.
Guests can start their day with a most hearty breakfast set. The Shanghainese breakfast is a complete set with a basket of xiao long bao, the internationally known steamed soup dumplings which originated in this city.
After breakfast guests and visitors to the hotel can savor the all-day dining menu for lunch and dinner, as well as the afternoon tea which is a noteworthy treat at Peninsula hotel lobby lounges.
Yi Long Court
For classic Chinese cuisine in an elegant setting, Yi Long Court presents high-quality Cantonese and Shanghainese dishes for tourists and locals alike.
The ingredients, presentation, and service are of the highest standard ensuring diners of a most satisfying and pleasurable meal. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner every day, with a special weekend dim sum menu on Saturdays and Sundays.
Sir Elly’s Restaurant
Named after the grandfather of the current chairmen of The Peninsula Hotel Group, Sir Elly Kadoorie and his brother, Sir Ellis, are the two founding brothers of the parent company.
The namesake restaurant in The Peninsula Shanghai is a destination venue with stunning views of the city.
The menu presents a modern approach to French cuisine using the finest local and international ingredients for another unforgettable dining experience.
Aside from the beautifully plated masterpieces, the wine menu further impresses. Back in 2010, this was the venue for the first time I tasted a Dr. Loosen Riesling. That wine pairing with Asian flavors was like a gateway experience to the wine estate’s production, and it is still one of my favorite Rieslings to pair with Asian cuisine.
The wine left such a lasting impression that I even made a point to visit the Dr. Loosen Wine Estate during my recent trip to Germany (read about it here).
The hotel’s signature restaurants are complemented by the three signature bars, a perfect nightcap to follow your meal.
Sir Elly’s Terrace is the rooftop bar on the 14th floor. The bar has some of the best views in the hotel to admire The Bund and the Pudong skyline.
Salon de Ning is Peninsula hotels’ standard lounge bar for a classy evening out. The lounge is closed on Sundays and Mondays, but guests can still enjoy the other bars in the hotel.
The Compass Bar is located on the ground floor with both an indoor and outdoor setting. When the weather is pleasant, guests can sip their drinks outside at the garden terrace. The menu offers bar snacks to pair with your drinks.
