Restaurants with a nice terrace ?

Postby Bobarctor » 10 Jun 2012, 10:12

What are your recommendation ? Something with a nice and relaxing outdoor seating ? The food quality come second...

Gordon Biersch - for the expat crowd. Food and beer are overpriced but decent.

Taiwan Brewery - not a terrace but a warehouse with some picnic tables outside

Hooters near Nanjing MRT

The Jolly brew pub down the street from hooters

Big Tom's at Sun Yat Sen park

Lots of the tea houses on top of the Maokong gondola

On Tap brew pub

e.181 near Luxy

Orange Cafe

Nice rooftop garden-like setting on the 3rd floor.
Very nice during late evening and night time.

If one would add "...not being forced to mix my food with engine exhaust"

What would not remain;
Carnegies - Hooters - 181 (well - if the food is second, it has a good view on passing-by night workers :lol: )

Seriously - I would love to sit outside on a terrace in downtown but unwilling to inhale damps.
I’m a dog shaped ashtray
I’m a shrugging moustache wearing a speedo tuxedo
I’m a movie with no plot, written in the back seat of a piss powered taxi
I’m an imperial armpit, sweating Chianti
I’m a toilet with no seat, flushing tradition down
I'm socialist lingerie
I'm diplomatic techno
I'm gay pastry and racist cappuccino
I’m an army on holiday in a guillotine museum
I’m a painting made of hair, on a nudist beach, eating McDonald's
I’m a novel far too long
I’m a sentimental song
I’m a yellow tooth waltzing with wrap around shades on

Who am I?
I am Europe

On Tap is a brew pub?

Carnegies is really good but tough to get a seat.
Hooters is nice, but the beer sucks and the service sucks and the famed waitresses are more annoying than hot.
Patio 84 in Tianmu is good if the regulars aren't staring you down with laser beam eye glares.
On Tap is quite nice too.
But the best is a cozy 7/11 on a quietish street with some import beers in fridge.

in Beitou above hell valley there's a great outdoor restaurant with a great view over Beitou/Danshui (well, it looks nice at night, OK?)

cuisine is buffet featuring Mongolian BBQ which you can do yourself or give to the man.

And it's not too expensive, and I forget the name.

nonetheless, it is 90% better than any of the previous mentions which all feature a 20 x 20 foot "terrace" (read 'stoop') in the middle of the city.
The prizes are a bottle of f*!@#$% SCOTCH and a box of cheap f!@#$#$ CIGARS!

Too many people! Almost all of the world's problems are due to overpopulation. The rest are due to religion.

50% of the world's wild animals have disappeared in the last 50 years. Did you eat them, or eat their house?

Ok... so conclusion: the choice is quite limited....
