French cuisine can give off an air of snobbishness, yet the
Gaulish Chef's Restaurant has been breaking this myth. They
have relied on word-of-mouth over the past five years to keep
the crowds coming. The experienced head chef explains that
the soul of French cuisine lies in the use of fresh ingredients,
the combination of delicious sauces, savoring the original
fresh flavors of the food itself and giving importance to
the enjoyment of the meal. They prepare everything by hand,
from the bread to the dessert afterwards. All are freshly-made
on a daily basis to ensure the best quality.
Authentic cuisines include Canadian oysters
that can be enjoyed with lemons and red wine vinegar. Try
the "Moscow-style Champagne Roasted Oysters" set
meal, which includes an appetizer, homemade Italian bread
(French bread during dinner time), soup, main course, dessert
and a drink. Carbonated mineral water is provided free of
charge. The Fois Gras set menu includes an appetizer of Fois
Gras Mousse, Fois Gras Cappuccino Soup, salad, a main course
of Steak with Truffle Sauce, as well as dessert and drink.
The Lobster Set Menu is good for two to share. It includes
Lobster with Truffle and an appetizer of Garlic Roasted Escargot-a
traditional French dish not to be missed. Combine these with
a plate of fresh fruit salad and finish off your meal with
a Creme Brulee for a true French dining experience.
The environment is complemented by classical
music in the background and the warm service of the friendly
staff members. You can also enjoy six-course dinners, with
a choice of Roast Chicken Steak (NT$360) and others; or a
light lunch of Red Wine Stewed Beef with Rice (NT$300) or
Italian Seafood Pasta with Pumpkin (NT$260). If you are really
short of time, grab a quick cup of coffee and their freshly
made bread. Don't forget to make reservations.
