We were staying at the Legendale so this location was convenient. We were so incredibly happy it was. Wow. Amazing dinner. Fabulous duck. Great atmosphere. Good selection of wines. Priced well for the ambiance and service.

We went here for a friend's going away dinner. It is a lovely duck restaurant if you prefer fine dining. I have been to lots of other duck places that aren't as fancy and the duck is equally as good or better. If you had a celebratory dinner or business dinner/lunch and you wanted the ambiance, then I'd go. It... More

I've been to this restaurant twice. Once in a private room and then in the regular dining room. Both times have been outstanding! I love the decor especially the cool sculptures in the courtyard. The waitstaff was incredibly helpful. Our hosts had ordered the day before and the food kept coming and coming! It was all so great too!

My first 北京烤鸭 during my last trip to Beijing was at Duck de Chine. My friends and I noticed that there were a lot more foreigners than locals, probably because of the reviews by Timeout and Beijinger (which we also read). The restaurant is on the pricier side, and there was a lot of emphasis on presentation. Most of the... More

This restaurant is hidden behind Pacific place building in Sanlitun area in a modern brick hutong surrounded by art galleries. On the menu, you will find Chinese and Beijing food, including the famous Beijing roasted duck. Probably, one of the best duck you can find in Beijing with more famous Dadong & Quanqude restaurants. Please note that all these 3... More

First off, be aware that there are TWO locations for this restaurant. They both serve the same menu in the same way, but double check which one you've reserved. Going to Beijing meant, of course, sampling the famous Peking Duck, and this place had the best review in Fodor's. It's all served with great theatricality; they cart out the duck,... More

A little hesitant going as some reviews are significantly differing in opinion. We had a beautiful evening there. Service was efficient but unobtrusive, duck (which was pre ordered by the hotel concierge) was sublime - the skin dipped in sugar just melted in your mouth. Wine list was extensive and well priced for China. We paid around $200 AUD total... More

Went to this place with a friend of the families who knew the area. The place is lovely in a fantastic setting with a wonderful ambience and we had a great evening. Could not fault the service, could not fault the food and could not fault the wine. Would recommend to anyone

I was recommended to this restaurant by my hotel. Peking Duck wasn't the best, just average. The ambience was certainly exquisite. Service was also good. The place was a great meeting place as it had a lot of expats as their clientele. The rest of the food we ordered was not bad 7/10. I just had higher expectations when we... More

This restaurant is just behind and off to the side of the Legendale hotel. It is right behind the sign which says 1949. The reception is prompt and ushers you through two sets of elegant wooden automated sliding doors to the hostesses who check your reservation in broken english and usher you in. The interior is elegant and built around... More
