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 Qiánmén Dajie; look for the ‘M’ hanging off the side of the building. Book ahead.

The menu ranges across France, Italy, Greece and north Africa. We like the tagines and Sicilian seafood stew, but the signature dishes of leg of lamb and suckling pig are equally as tasty. 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 ¥248/288.
