A moment of leisure to take a delicious meal offers satisfaction to the soul as well as it does to the body. Everyone engaged in the catering industry wants to bring smiles to the guest savoring delicate dishes in a cozy environment.

Featuring a 13-meter high ceiling with gorgeous crystal chandeliers and a bronze statue of a smiling girl in Chinese cheongsam holding a birdcage, the new Ecco restaurant demonstrates the style of magnificence and grace.

Although the menu is focused heavily on Italian, Ecco really offers something for everyone with a wide range of choices from the Orient to the west. Every guest has his own idea and standard of fine food, and Mr. Bruno Rotschaedl said, “What we do is to explore and to make a difference through our rich experience.” InterContinental Shanghai Puxi offers a wide range of choices for the guest, including the seafood bar, barbeque bar, salad bar, dessert bar, Sushi bar, serving delicacies from all over the world.
