Fatty's is a great restaurant! If you want European cafe go into Smooth Bistro next door

For 12 years I have visited Smooth only. If you are an Ex-Pat or International visitor that is where to go! Same owner as Fatty's - just very laid back. Italian dishes and German beer / bar the best in Taichung!!

Gerhardt the man in charge was willing to have the chef make it the way you like it. Wonderful bread! Nice ambiance, good wine selection, linen table cloths. We ate... More

We started frequenting this place since 2006 when our investment projects led us to Taichung. We got to know the owner Henry (a well travelled Dutch guy) very well and spent countless times in his restaurant. Henry also owns the Fatty Italian restaurant right around the corner so the menu offers Italian and European food, but Henry and his team... More

BY the time the first course arrived it was cold. The main course was no better with the steak served returned to to be... More

A nicer restaurant than their casual next door restaurant "Fatty's". They call it a European Restaurant, however I would say mostly Italian with a few other dishes. Their baked pastas were good. The creme brulee was great...one of the best I've had. I'm a very picky eater and I finished everything. Not a fan of their house salad. It's the... More
