Are you looking for an up- market, sophisticated
dining experience in Pingtung City? The Artist Restaurant
is there to suit your needs. It's situated at 37, GongYi
Street; just turn off ZhiYou Road onto XinYi Road when
heading towards the city's downtown area and it's just
on your left. It has a beautiful little garden setting
with a waterfall outside, so it's easy to spot.
Open seven days a week for lunch and
dinner, it's a good change from your everyday mundane
selection of food. With a large variety of European
cuisine and a menu in Chinese and English, it caters
to both locals and Westerners.
With dishes like Baked Seafood in Pumpkin
Shell with Cheese, Grilled Pork Chop with Black Pepper
Sauce, Stewed Beef Risotto in Red Wine and so much more,
you need not make a hasty decision regarding what to
eat. Take your time to make your choice. They also have
a nice variety of wines to go with your meal.
As you walk upstairs into the stylish
interior, you will notice a refined atmosphere, soft
music and friendly staff to seat you and help you with
anything you may need. The restaurant has two floors,
the first floor being the main dining area. The second
floor has a private function room and extra dining area.
Artist can seat up to 70 people.
On Saturday and Sunday nights after 7 p.m., the Artist
has a live pianist playing great, relaxing, soft music
for you to enjoy while you're eating. It is a great
change from the sounds of traffic in your ears. So be
sure you give yourself a lot of time to sit and relax,
savor your meal and enjoy the ambience of this restaurant.
FYI SOUTH reminds
you not to drink and drive.
