Just perfect. The scallop salat delicious, the crab parmesan fries from another planet and the tenderloin perfection.

Great place to eat if you look for a true European taste in and around Kenting. Very tasty and really nicely presented. Even better then the dinner: the breakfast. Rather than the normal breakfast, you are served a kind of breakfast menu, which is extraordinary!...We will come back.More

I visited this Bistro while in Kenting. The dishes were excellent. I recommend the duck it was mouth watering. Great service food cooked right in front of you.

Great place. Open kitchen. Japanese vibe: friendly, serious about food, welcoming, relaxed. Flatbread as a starter was excellent (like a fresh mini pizza). Steak with mushroom sauce and fish both cooked perfectly. Side dish of mushrooms extraordinarily good. Lovely staff. Highly recommended.

We went for dinner to Piccolo Polpo Bistro and we were quite satisfied. The cuisine is Italian with a touch of topical flavors. Service was quick and the dishes came in a perfect tempo. The prices are nearly the same like in Italy, but it’s...okay for what you get. We had two starters, one soup, one flatbread, one pasta, two glasses of wine and two cafes and paid with service charge 2300. We can really recommend it. Never expect that high quality of food in Nanwan.More

It’s cozy bistro and very busy. Better call for reservation to make sure you got a table. Seafood was fresh and tasty. Great place to family / friends gathering. But the price there is a bit pricy.

Very popular Italian restaurant in a touristic beach area. The food offering was Italian with lots of seafood combinations. All 3 of us enjoyed our meals. And after several days in Taiwan, it was nice to use a fork again.

Great seafood and mediterranean cuisine. Very cosy and quiet place, it's near the sea and it has an open kitchen. Delicious !

This little place is only open two hours per night, and not even every night. Reservation is recommended, but we couldn't make a reservation online. Apparently the service wasn't working. Instead we tried our luck and got to the restaurant right after 6pm. Since we...didn't have a reservation we were placed outside. The weather was still rather warm and humid. Later came the mosquitos and the restaurant provided repellents on the table... Not my kind of a setting... The food was tasty and made with heart. However, the other experience and the prices didn't make the justice to the food. I left a bit disappointed.More

This is a pretty international looking restaurant and quite sophisticated in its presentation and decor. We were lucky to get a table as each day it was very busy.
The food here is outstanding. Seafood based but they do have some other dishes too. We...absolutely loved the prosciutto wrapped scallops, cuttlefish with smoked paprika aioli and lobster with flatbread. The best dish hands down was the confit duck with a truffle and mushroom risotto. This restaurant is an absolute MUST visit. Our meal set usMore
