This charming Spanish restaurant located in a garden villa in Shanghai’s former French Concession is one of the best places in the city to enjoy al fresco dining. Chef Willy Trullas Moreno's innovative food is hard to beat; particularly impressive are the piles of fresh seafood and a range of inventive tapas. Although any evening here will be expensive it is worth it for the breezy patio, jugs of sangria, and delicious cuisine. There's also deli that sells imported cheeses and cold cuts.
