ADD YOUR RATING & REVIEW | VIEW VISITOR RATINGS & REVIEWS

By Steven Crook & Rebekah Godfrey & Simon Foster Translated by Isabel Tsai & Annie Liu

At the British Consulate at Takao you get beautifully prepared cuisine and a view of SiZih Bay and Kaohsiung city. Although the restaurant is bustling on weekends, there is plenty of seating for everyone. The restaurant is part of the historic building that was constructed by a British architect in the 1860's. As the first foreign consulate in Taiwan, it displays a number of historical relics, maps and models. Most people come for the charming food though! The menu is large, although most of the "afternoon tea" food between 2 and 5:30 p.m. would be considered "light". Three-tiered plates filled with cookies, cakes, sandwiches, fruit and crackers are enough for 3 to 4 people, and by far the most popular choice (NT$260 or NT$320). You also get your choice of coffee, tea, or juice. Other snacks and beverages are available, including Yoghurt Beauty Drinks (NT$150), which contain a secret ingredient called "elephant feet". For dinner you can choose from a small variety of set meals, all under NT$400. Sorbet and alcohol are also available. History buffs that enjoy casual dining with a stunning view of the harbor and the city shouldn't miss a visit to the British Consulate at Takao.
