I have been to Wendel's several times by dint of my companions' insistence. I have never been lucky enough to have a meal I truly enjoyed. I have given up on this restaurant. HOWEVER, if you reserve a table for Octoberfest, there are tons of activities and plentiful beer and this place can be a rollicking good time. The key... More

Before I start my review, I need to say that I have been avoiding all of Wendel's locations in Taipei after a previous visit to the Dexing branch during which I had ordered green cabbage with sausage, half because I hadn't had it in years and half to introduce my Taiwanese lunch date to traditional German cuisine. When the meal... More

I didn't expect to eat German food on my visit to Taipei, but Wendel's turned out to be a treat. The Caesar salad, caprese salad, and spinach salads we shared were all very good; I particularly liked the spinach salad which had walnuts, tomatoes, and quail eggs. I had the Zwiebelrostbarten, a medium-rare (as requested) sirloin steak with asparagus wrapped... More

We enjoyed great food and beer. The atmosphere was open and organic, loved the big open room atmosphere. I had the sausages and they were delicious. What I really loved was the bakery, wow! I bought beautiful gingerbread cookies in all different shapes. I wish I could have gotten one of the gingerbread houses! Great pastries that were just as... More

My boyfriend and I decided to dine here at 8:30pm on a Saturday night. We met at the metro station and walked over. We walked in and saw a sign that said "wait to be seated" and shortly after were asked if we wanted to sit inside or out. We chose outside and were given 2 food menus and 1... More

a college of mine wanted to do me a favor and brought me to this place. I tried the "Wiener Schnitzel" and yes it taste like it. The inside of the restaurant tries to deliver some German flavor, big poster from Munich "Oktoberfest" and German national soccer team with 4 stars :). Beer garden looks nice...but who want to sit...

A place with nice ambience for Sunday brunch. Not a fancy restaurant and it's kind of self-service restaurant as you have to get cutlery by yourself and expected to put dishes back to the rack at the back of restaurant. But the bread is nice. The portion is definitely big. A set meal for two can feed at least 3... More

Wendels serves traditional German food in a relaxed setting complete with beer garden. Although the range of draught beers is a little limited (erdinger) it is nonetheless a fun option for lunch or dinner.

Our family of four decided to have a late sunday lunch here. The beer on tap was nice and cold and our initial service was very prompt. We found the atmosphere to be convivial and comfortable. I ordered the bratwurst plate and found it delicious: perfectly cooked sausage with flavorful gravy, mashed potatoes, and sauerkraut-- even a nice smear of... More
