If you're looking for a spacious, comfortable, high-end French/Italian restaurant with reasonable prices in the 7th Redevelopment Zone ("Chi-Chi") area, Amphitheatre Restaurant is a great new option. The chef comes from the hotel industry and offers different menus for each season. High-quality ingredients include De Cecco olive oil and pasta as well as Prime grade beef. Despite the top-quality French and Italian cuisine served here, prices are surprisingly reasonable. Lunch sets (NT$580-850) include salad, handmade bread, soup, dessert (Tiramisu or Creme Brulee), a drink and entree. Spaghetti and risotto are only available during lunch. Dinner sets (NT$850-1,250) include everything the lunch sets offer, plus a glass of sparkling wine and sorbet. --By Ruby Wu, translated by Angel Pu
A. The large, bright and elegantly-decorated first floor seats up to 88 diners and also includes private rooms. The second floor has meeting spaces that can accomodate 30-40 people.
B. American Prime Sirloin Steak, available for lunch or dinner. Dipping the especially tender beef into a specially-made mix of herbs and salt helps release the savory meat aromas in your mouth. There are also different sauces for extra variety, including Red Wine and Pepper Sauce and Madeira Sauce. Gourmands will also enjoy the Limited American Prime Rib Eye Steaks.
C. Oil-Sealed Duck Leg in French Style uses Hao-ye duck from Yilan county. The duck meat is treated with spices and dipped into a low-temperature oil to seal flavors inside the skin. After pan-frying, it goes wonderfully with a specially-made yellow mustard sauce.
