In an attempt to lure more traditional diners over to specialty cuisine, Lafete's dishes are made with top seasonal favorites, with a French twist. Almost all the ingredients that the chefs use here are imported from France, and some are even grown in Lafete's kitchen sink! The menu changes about once every three months. Meal sets are served at lunch time (NT$780) and a la carte choices include Autumn's Creative Cuisine (NT$980), the Lafete Special (NT$1,980) and the enticing Exploring Dreams (NT$980, vegetarian). --By Eve, translated by Ann Lee

A. In French, the word "la fete" means a party or a pleasant respite, and this place is decorated with this theme in mind. A white, minimalist look really helps customers relax. The quiet corridor at the entrance lets guests chill a bit before their meal.

B. Pan-fried King Prawn and Live Abalone with Caper Lemon Butter is a favorite main course for the Lafete Special (NT$1,980). On the bottom you will find a layer of spinach risotto, mixed with a creamy, slightly sour sauce to bring out the taste of the seafood. The middle layer is stuffed with king prawns and topped with fresh abalone.
