Unlike certain other posters on this site I won't hide the fact that I am connected with this place. Last year I found this place, only 6 km from the end of WuFu Lu, inside Sun YatSen (ZhongShan) university. I absolutely love the location, to the extent that I was crazy enough to spend almost all of my money (and some of a German friend who has also invested with me) on the place.

Our prices are not high. It is a little harder to get to than most places because the road gets rather steep at the end (see map on the web site for location details) but I think most people will think it is very much worth it. Right on the beach, surrounded by trees. No need to go to Kending to enjoy the beach! The air here is literally cooler and cleaner than down town thanks to the combination of sea breezes and monkey mountain behind us. At the moment we are only open on weekends from lunch until midnight (or later if people come in before then) and on weekdays from about 3:30 till at least 11 or later if we still have customers then. If you can be here at sunset it can be really nice to watch the sunset over the sea.
Our food has a decidedly European bent to it reflecting the fact that the 2 owners are foreigners but not from North America. A number of things you can get here that I don't think you can get elsewhere in Kaohsiung. For example a variaty of quiches, scones with real cream not long life rubbish etc. Also our pizzas are cooked in a specially imported oven that can reach 400 degrees celccius. They use a thin crust and real mozzarella rather than the cheap and nasty shredded stuff. The pizza dough is made by us and is not frozen unlike most places in South Taiwan.
Unlike a lot of dive restaurants and bars we are not afraid to show you what we offer so that you can compare easily with other places. Just check out our web site. It has many pics of the place and a menu on line. The breakfast items are not yet available but will be very soon. Same for ice cream.
We hope to gradually add a few more other items to to the menu in the next few months. We don't have any service charge or other hidden costs but we do have a NT$100 per person minimum charge. Sorry we don't yet have credit card machines here (also their are no ATMs near us) but likewise we hope to get credit card facilities in the future.
