We found LOFT by chance walking by and we went back twice for dinner. The staff is very friendly and one of the waitresses speaks perfect English. The chef cooks great pasta al dente and fantastic risotto. The format of open kitchen lets you see the chef in action. The restaurant is very clean and great ambiance. The prices are... More

Western food is abundant in Taipei, no doubt. Many 'western' restaurants unfortunately, carry the same run-of-the-mill type of menu, ingredients, and employ the same cooking style. Its all too similar to Chinese American food in the States- everyplace has got to have General Tso. We are blessed however, with several unique chefs from around the world, that not only have...

I'm sorry to say, but the service was extremely poor. I think the server was young and that's ok, but they really need to do some major training with him. I liked how the restaurant has an open kitchen, but I didn't like what I heard in the kitchen, things like "tell them if they want extra sauce they need... More

Many evenings I have tried to find a small and cosy place in Taipei to enjoy (for a break!) western food and a good bottle of read or white wine. AND I FOUND IT! But be aware that it is a start-up: one day you might be the only guest and the other day you will hardly find a seat.... More

We've been having Taiwanese food (Din Tai Fung & Japanese Noodles) in Taipei City for a few days and want to have good "foreigner" food for a change. We decided to try the Loft Bistro & wine Bar because of all the good reviews. We called and booked (Telephone: 02 2766 1682) even though it was already 8.30pm (they say... More

I know that it is lame to go to an American style bistro when you are visiting Taipei, but believe me you will hit the wall with all the dumplings, the beef noodle soup, the Taiwan beer, and the stinky tofu. It happens to the best of us. Where should you go for a reminder that there is an equilibrium... More

Comforting home cooked style Western food. I had the macaroni cheese vegetarian which was nice, and my partner had the lamb burger which was flavorful. We had for dessert the apple pie and luckily had no nuts (rare so far in Taipei) and was scrumptious. I also had a Guinness which was not expensive and nicely chilled. I recommend this... More

What a gem! I arrived a few minutes before opening and was immediately invited in to sit down and offered some water. That is the kind of genuine service that makes you want to spread the word and come back again. This place has so much charm in the decor, a warmth to it, and the food was delicious. I... More
