Is this the best restaurant in Beijing - no. Was this a fabulous meal after days of Peking duck and noodles - absolutely. Steak and chips, followed by a huge waffle and washed down with some fruit beer - hit the spot. Service was fine. Perhaps would not stand out so much in Brussels, but really made my evening!

Annoyingly, I only discovered this restaurant the day before I left Beijing; otherwise I would have visited frequently. After a fortnight of delicious but exclusively Chinese meals, finding Morel's was a relief and a delight. I had Steak/Frites and my companion had sole with potato cones; both were superb. The only drawback was that we had to work in the... More

I used to go to Morels for great food and a wonderful environment, and so after a few years without a visit I thought it would be a good chance for a visit. I was sorely disappointed. Poor service including asking for 5 rmb for bread. We had to chase the staff to take our orders... The place has become... More

In 12.5 years of time in Beijing, Morel's has the distinction of being a place where despite untold number of visits I have never had a disappointing meal. Their steaks are always cooked to perfection as ordered and their bucket of mussels in Beijing is legendary. There may be places with fancier decor, or presentation, but I'm hard-pressed to name...

Used to be one of the best places in Beijing to get a steak - now its has been one disappointment after another. I'm not sure if it is the beef itself, or if stays frozen for too long, but the steaks recently have left a poor taste in my mouth. 8 years ago they used to be the only... More

Had the 98¥ 3 course lunch. Also included 1 glass of house wine, draft beer, or soft drink. To finish, coffee or tea. This represents very good value in my opinion. The food was a bit of a throw back in time as is the decor. I started with ham stuffed with Russian salad that was plated with an abundance... More

I read some review about this place, and I decide to try it. Big mistake! Never back here again! Spaghetti bolognese taste very bad...the acidity of the tomato sauce it was too high....the other dish( I forget the name) was looking as soup with kitchen but far away to be good. Please avoid to go in morel. Even the service... More

Our family went to Morel's on our last day in Beijing, having had excellent Chinese food, but (as we live in China), wanting to try something foreign, but different. We didn't have high expectations--we just wanted some novelty--but we were all very impressed with the quality and service. The salads in particular were excellent, (and I'm picky about salads); the... More

Morel's around for so many years and still has the best Mussles in town, also the crevettes are worth a trip to the small but nice restaurant.

I thought entering a country side restaurant in Belgium a couple of decades ago when coming to Morel. Must say, the food is good. We had steak tartare, mussels, black pudding, etc and all delivered. Food is surprisingly authentic and service is ok.
