Somehow, this beautiful lanehouse-set restaurant and cocktail bar remains relatively untroubled by crowds - probably because it's slightly pricier than most.

The French restaurant on the ground floor offers somewhat average and overpriced food, but the upstairs bar serves cocktails with typical Japanese precision. The fresh fruit and Champagne cocktails (80RMB) are particular stand outs, and provide an ideal summery blend of flavours 

It also boasts a spacious ground floor patio and decking area is wonderfully relaxing, but if you get there early enough the real prize is the real prize is the one table, two-seat balcony on the second floor,which makes for a romantic, private spot to spend an afternoon or evening
