- Now managed by the Fuchun Resort in Hangzhou, this pricey restaurant is well-known for its delicious meals. Located in a quaint, 19th century building in the Xintiando Shopping district, the joint invites patrons to enter via a slate walkway over pools with fish swimming around gracefully. A seat at the upper-floor bar gives you a full view of the kitchen and dining sections, where lacquered furnishings in soothing tones enhance the local and Mediterranean fare. A glass of bubbles (preferably the New Zealand Pinot Noir), a dig into the braised lamb shank pie, and seared king prawns with octopus compote, all expertly put together by the Aussie chef, will leave you hankering for more. The spot is known to attract celebs, so keep your autograph book ready. Is it any wonder that the place has been named one of the world's 50 best restaurants by Condé Nast Traveller?
