This cute, cozy, classy-but-relaxing little restaurant is a pleasant new option in the heart of Little Europe, located on a quiet lane between JingMing 1st and 2nd streets. The already-broad menu, which will continue to evolve, includes nine pasta dishes (NT$210-260) like Chicken Alfredo, Shrimp Mediterranean, or Clams Alle Vongole; various burgers/sandwiches like the Sirloin Burger (NT$270) or Grilled Chicken Caesar Sandwich (NT$230); and salads, starters, teas, coffees, beers, wines and cocktails. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Naomi Lai

A. Husband-and-wife owners Patrick Coulter and Anita Chiu are veteran local restaurateurs and did most of the renovation/decoration work on this 30-seat place themselves. Both the airy, lighter-colored front dining area and the more atmospheric, back area--with maroon-walls and brick-and-wood bar--feature classy, understated decor.

B. The Greek Tortilla Wrap (pictured) is a tasty, light meal perfect for warmer days, and is includes feta cheese, red onions, olives, tomatoes, lettuce and balsamic vinegar. This is among the NT$180 lunch special entrees available Mondays to Fridays between 11 a.m .and 4:30 p.m. and including soup and a drink. Other lunch entree options include three pastas, two rice dishes, six eight-inch pizzas, and two sandwiches.

Bystro Restaurant GrillC. The Portuguese Boneless Chicken Leg (NT$380) is a one of Bystro's more serious main-course items (which come with hand-cut fries, bread, soup, salad, seasonal veggies, dessert and drink), and is made by marinating a grilled boneless chicken leg in birds eye chilis and garlic sauce. Other mains include the John Dory in White Wine Caper Sauce (NT$450) and New Zealand Lamb Chops with Anchovy Butter (NT$680).
