We ate here for two nights and tried a lot of the menu and everything tasted original and fresh. Menu is eclectic, so there is something for everyone. Also, the ambiance is very pleasant, they put attention to the styling of the restaurant, very colorful and arty. The staff pays attention to hospitality as well, they make you feel welcome....

Stayed next door at a fantastic local surf shop while on a surfing trip to Taiwan. We had dinner most nights at this restaurant. The food was good and the staff were friendly and efficient. The wine list was good for a small restaurant and the staff made you want to come back. I would highly recommend this restaurant to... More

Went during the week, not too busy. The food was good and the service was excellent. Sat outside after the meal and enjoyed a few drinks. Will go again.

Both me and my husbad love food! We enjoy trying new food/restaurants wherever we go. We have been going back to Kenting for the past many, many years and I have tried almost (there are new places everytime) every restaurant there is from Kenting Street to Hengchung (no kidding). We have come to a conclusion: If you are in Kenting... More

Expensive and over priced place. You are better off heading further down to town or to the Night market and have your dinner there to avoid disappointment.

A few reviews have mentioned the limited vegetarian options here. That is true - even the Vegetables section of the menu includes fish or meat with each dish HOWEVER the chef/management/staff are very accommodating and not only made the dishes veggie-friendly but also added extra yummy ingredients to make the dishes more interesting. The food was good, the deserts were... More

First, the food was wonderful. It was authentic, well priced, and absolutely delicious. Second, the atmosphere was honest, welcoming, and friendly - not like many of the "eat, pay, and leave" tourist restaurants that plague the kenting area. It feels like a family run establishment, but it's good for families (like us), couples on a date, solo travelers, groups. ...... More

Awesome find in this otherwise touristy area! My date had a beautiful beet salad with a mango lassi, and I enjoyed a Parma Ham sandwich with a side of fries and a beer. All said it cost less than TW$ 800.

We came with a large party. Half ordered western fare the other Asian. The bacon pasta was supposed to resemble carbonara but tasted awful. The thai beef salad was soggy and sparse. The special of the day was sea bass, and though the portion was huge, I thought the flavor was lacking. The Asian dishes fared better.

Ate both lunch and dinner on the same day. Four adults in the party and eight different meals were ordered. All were excellent. Lovely surroundings and very friendly staff.

Thank Blajk
