The terrace of this swish but relaxed restaurant, with its unfussy menu of Mediterranean favourites, offers fine views over Qiánmén Gate and Tiān’ānmén Sq. The weekday lunch menu is decent value (¥188). It’s down the first turning on the left at the beginning of Qianmen Dajie; look for the ‘M’ hanging off the side of the building. Book ahead.

The menu ranges across France, Italy, Greece, Turkey and north Africa and the signature leg-of-lamb dish remains as popular as ever. If you can't snaffle a table on the terrace, the large, light-filled dining room is almost as good a spot to enjoy your meal. There’s a weekend brunch deal with two/three courses for ¥258/298.
