Privy 5 Overview

Share |

el Willy is hugely popular restaurant named after its eccentric owner/chef Guillermo "Willy" Trujllas Moreno, serving Spanish cuisine with a noticeable contemporary twist. The décor and atmosphere straddles fine and casual dining and, although the restaurant resides in what looks like an old-time colonial mansion, el Willy is still a homely and comfortable dining experience . Don’t expect entirely traditional Spanish cooking. You will find “juicy " rather than just straight paella, for example of the flair and imaginative twists they put in the cuisine at el Willy. There is outdoor seating available too on a first floor terrace. The menu is seasonal, so what you find delicious in December may not be available in May. But their famous and continually award-winning tapas are always recommended. The wine list is impressive, and the venue has been known to even host wine tastings. With an award-winning chef to go with equally decorated dishes and ambiance, el Willy remains one of the best dining experiences in Shanghai.
